Default Help with a stripe and how it will look...?

Okay first of all let me explain...

I love love love the look of a black car with ghost stripes, now I'm wondering what it would look like on a white car. Is this a terrible idea? I need your photoshop eliteness to help me, and your own opinions. I've been debating I just painting stripes, going vinyl, or my newest thing - using plasti dip. I think no matter what color I choose I'm going to try out this plastidip stuff. It seems to work fairly well and is pretty inexpensive if I don't like it.

Anyways can someone photoshop a matte white stripe on my car? Doesn't need to be perfect I just want an idea of what it would look like.

If it looks horrible do you have any other color suggestions? I can do just about any color it seems with this plasti dip stuff, I was thinking matte blue may look cool too, maybe even matte black. I can also choose to "pearlize" or "glossify" the colors too (I believe that's how they refer to them, lol.)
Any help is appreciated thanks much!

*edit* I don have any pics of my car that would be easy so I just found this one on google if its easier to do a different angle or view any white s197 will be fine I'm just curious how it looks or if its even visible

Hey, sorry for the late reply. From past experience, matte white doesn't show up well in photoshop, but I'll try and chop it later today

here's the white matte... it's rather subtle, but i did it the same way i do matte on other colors. if you'd like other colors, though, let me know.

on a side note, i have used plasti-dip on wheels not that long ago, and i am rather pleased with the results

Looks ok I guess. The beauty of white is you can do anything you want. There's even a gal around here with pink stripes, it actually looks cool.
