haha, the title was meant so people would come into the thread thinking that I jacked something up, only to find I changed things up.<p>I like the shoulders stripes, they are subtle, but I think they will look better on different colored cars.

Sorry Bob. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> The fender (hash marks) stripes looked a lot better. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Conceptually, I like what you're going for here a lot. As is the case with your headlight brows (which I LOVE), you've taken a challenging body line and done a great job interprting this. However, I will join the chorus...I don't really care for it. I don't know if it's your 04 trim bring black too or not, but I love your car with fender stripes. I would pass on this though personally.

Re: (GiRaff3)

I love your wheels. Can I see more pics of your car in different angles? I think I would be able to tell you what I think better.

Re:

hmmm, i've been debating how i feel. I think with the black side molding it is indeed too much. <p>I don't like the how it follows the hood line. It was a good idea, but i don't think it fits-could be the angle of the photos too... I think it takes something away from the body lines of the car. If it would have run from the back and straight up to the front, with matching molding i think it would look alright. I also think stripes and such look great on cars with lots of other logos for some reason. i see a lot of paint jobs/stripes/etc that would look awful on a car with out race numbers and misc logos. all together that kind of thing just works. <p> keep trying new things <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Re: (atacamaR)

Bob, <p>I did stripes about a year ago on my S40 before i did new paint. I layed a basic black stripe down and it seemed to big for my liking. Try adding more colors to break it up. I did three layers before i was even somewhat happy. I ended up taking them off a couple weeks later.<p><A HREF="http://img34.imageshack.us/i/volvos40t5007.jpg/" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/4186/volvos40t5007.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://img30.imageshack.us/i/volvos40t5008e.jpg/" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/9894/volvos40t5008e.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>

It took me so long to realize what was actually done, haha. <p>I really loved your car before with the fender stripes. I dont know how I feel about the "shoulder stripe". At least it's unique.
