@Supernova Do you like stripes? What draws you to that one?

It's different.
I'm think of a deep metalic red with a metalic dark charcoal tail and stripe.

I think it would look better if you flipped it...put the cap up front then ran the stripes down???

The hardest thing to do is choose a color or colors. Im a big fan of the 70's Mopar paint schemes like the AAR cuda or blacked out hoods, some type of hockey stripe but thats just me. Not to sound like a jerk but how straight is the bodywork going to be. If its going to be a nice "driver" quality job stay away from dark colors as they will show the ripples and imperfections easier. If your going for super laser straight show quality paint it all BLACK :thumb: nothing looks better than a perfect gloss black paint job, but good luck keeping it that way.
