    The wheels will be back on Tuesday. I was trying to figure out the stripes. Do you like the solid black stripe down the middle or the white stripe? I think the white stripe looks cleaner but the black stripe looks meaner:

    This is a great work. your guy is fantastic.
    I'm about to re-do my stripes, and I'm waiting for pricing to decide if I'm going with painting or not.
    I've got a white color with red stripes, and I wanna do red stripes with black pinstripes.
    what's the width of your stripes? 8"?
    Nice ride!

    Beautiful ride. Finally I found someone with same color combination!
    Go white in the middle.
    I'm about to re-do my stripes, and thank you to let me see what it would look like.
    I kept trying to find pics that have same color as I think of.

    7.250 LABOR TAX :question:

    (Never thought I’d use that emoji but I haven’t seen a documented labor tax before...)

    Otherwise, I hope your stripes came out the way you wanted.

    Finally got my powder coated wheels back today and deleted the old vinyl stripes over the weekend. Everything is coming together. A couple more changes then I will get the stripes painted back on:

    No problem, on page 2 of this thread I posted the estimate. $3959.14
    Your Powder coated wheels look pretty hard ! Nice contrast with that White car.

    I like the white middle stripe much better and hopefully you eliminate that ugly license plate holder as your car would look so much better without it!

    if the red were lighter the black middle would be good. I like the black one but I think it would be better with a matt silver, gold, or something radically contrast like a yellow or pink. Though a light blue might work.

    Get some swatches and play with it.
