    Mach Stripes on the Coupe

    We skirted around this topic in a few other threads, but I wanted to start a new thread for some opinions...

    I'm thinking of putting a black vinyl roof on the coupe and keeping the original Gold Glow Metallic color but adding the top part of the Mach stripes. I don't think the lower black out decal would look good with the chrome rocker strips. I did a little photoshop to help illustrate! What do you guys think? Will the ginger interior look ok with a black top?

      Barry,

      As you may recall, that is essentially what I am looking at with my Grandé. Of course, I am currently going with medium bright yellow instead of gold glow, though. My intent is to not use the chrome strip; I will black out the bottom portion (around 6 -8 inches).

      I wish I would stop seeing photos of that gold glow stuff...it REALLY looks good!! I have started to notify my painter a couple of times to make the change. Woe is me!!

        Haha, Sorry Cobra!

        I do like the gold glow and it's the original color...not so important since we are resto-modding it to a slight extent but at least it will be the original color code! The interior is 100% original also.

          RE: Mach Stripes on the Coupe

          Just left the shop and was told the Grandé will be going to the Painter on or about this Friday. According to the owner, I will still have about three weeks before they will need the color decision.

          I have ordered the "Marti Report" and have decided I will go with what it says was the original color (if it is medium bright yellow or Gold Glow). I am 99.99% sure that it will say "Gold Glow." If so, I will leave it that color..NOW, I have officially said it!

          Plus, the First Lady has said she thinks I should leave it the original color. Oh well, I will still have the YELLOW Mach I.

          THANKS Rocketfoot Smile!

                For what it's worth, my 73 Greengold has this black stripe. It was on there when it was bought new so I know that this stripe is "authentic" on a coupe. Or was that the ?...lol been gone a a few days and trying to catch up.

                  I just want it to look good, not going for a concours restoration or anything. That is good to know though! I didn't know any coupes came with stripes!

                    I think the black top looks great and the stripes look pretty good too. MB

                      Honestly Rocket..I think originality is pretty much out the door anymore. Nobody can afford the stock classics anymore. Nowdays it's about restomodding and building to taste. Yeah looking at an all original 32,000 mile Mach looks cool, but thats for the B-Jackson crowd. Your ride should be just that.....yours. Build it to have fun!!!

                      Personalize it brother!!!!
