Default Stripe color recommendation

After a year of thinking about it, I think I'm just going to go for it. 18 inch super stripe. I know matte black is the obvious choice, but I thought I'd ask for suggestions. Perhaps someone has a better idea?

White or Vapor Sliver will look good on your color

I'm with you on the glossy black. I think it would look great.

Hmm flat black has a nice muscle look to it, but glossy stripes don't impress me much. You can't lose with White and Flat Black, you can even go with a dark blue if you're feeling adventurous. I've even seen Turbo Red on a silver car and thought it looked good

the red and blue options seem very interesting, maybe post your car in the Chop Shop and hopefully someone could photoshop some stripes on there. I'd say the flat black would be the classy way to go IMO. Goodluck!

http://www.spectrummarcom.com/mustan...pePainter.html check that out. The vapor silver idea sounds interesting. I'm debating on if I should do stripes and what color too, so post up some pics once its done.

If you go black, I think the matte black looks much better than the gloss black. Something a shade darker silver would look good too? I've always liked the stripes that are "ghosted" on so they only jump out at you under certain lighting?

Woah, this thing is neat. I really like the super snake in white. Cool find.

I've seen a few silver cars with blue stripes. I really like it. Any thoughts about blue stripes? I've never seen it in person.
