Looks really good Tanner! Love those side markers. As far as stripes go, I'd say go for the black stripes. Is black on red a little plaid out? Maybe, but it's that way for a reason. It looks good! And I think with such a bright red body, a matte black stripe would look better than an equally bright white stripe.
Now, if I'm not mistaken, you are still planning on doing a future V8 swap? And if I remember correctly, you already have the 8.8 with 3.55s, right? I think you need to toss that rear end on first, then go with the gt500 rear bumper and finish it up with exhaust for now. Then grab the stripes! That'll be one BA looking ride.
Thanks, guys. She is finally coming along.
Mad, I think you are right. My husband is pushing for white stripes because he thinks its more classic, but I'm thinking black would be aggressive.
Yes I do have an 8.8 sitting in the garage. We will be installing that next month. For now I'm actually leaning toward SC'ing in the next year or so. If I did a V8 swap I would almost have to get a little beater DD because we would do the install ourselves. For now I just don't want to deal with it. Plus I can get the SC'er sooner.
H-H-YAH, I don't have any right now, but I can get a few this evening and post them.
I'm really diggin' those corners. I think its time for me to switch mine up to those
I might be in the minority here, but I like white stripes on Torch Reds.

I'd say that's pretty smart, Tanner. I don't think the beater would be worth it unless you're using it on a regular basis, and I've never been a fan of a garage kept ride unless you have a long commute for work every morning. What's the point of owning such an amazing car and only being able to drive it on the Sundays? haha. Can't wait to see some pics/vids of your ride with a s/c
