Smile Bye Bye Stripes!

So, last Friday, I gave in to my thoughts since Day 1 when I purchased the car (May of last year). I removed the hood stripes on Friday, the spoiler upper stripes on Saturday. I need to remove the spoiler lower stripes, and hatch stripes when I have some free time.

Your car looks great.

The Dodge Dakota with Grand Sport stripes should burn.

Stripes WILL be back, just not white. I'm going for either darker blue, darker red, or matte black. I'm thinking matte black at the moment would look best. I have the other TA to get up and running now first..

Here are my two purdy cars side by side (dirty though) - cell phone shots:


I took a few shots with my D2x and 70-300 VR just a few seconds ago, but both cars are dirty so I make no promises on how nice it looks :P

Personally, I'm glad those stripes are gone, the stripes on the spoiler and hatch did not match the hood design. Looks much cleaner now IMO. Good job!

I'll be doing a matte black manta on my car soon. The guy who did my clear bra is doing it.

So I'm biased to matte black stripes
