    side stripes

    Hi guys!

    I´ve been researching side stripes on the 71-73 mustangs and I´m supprised to see that almost none of these cars have the so called "c-stripe" on the sides.
    In my opinion the lines in the body are perfect for these stripes..

    What do you guys think? Is there something I dont see that won´t look good? Tongue

        RE: side stripes

        That's the beauty of restomodding, you can make your vehicle look however you want (or can afford) to make it.

        I tell you, after over 40 years "in the hobby", it is really refreshing to see another generation getting into it and not necessarily for fiscal reasons. I don't have anything against restorers or numbers-matchers but I think there is plenty of room in the hobby for modifyers, hot rodders and racers.

        To each his (or her) own!

          Go for it stebbsi...I used to have a pic with a coupe that had a c stripe. I 'll see if I can dig it up this week.


          Gotta agree cobra! Never bash anyone and treat people well.

            Try it and see how you like it unless you have the "finished" paint on the car.

            The paint on my car is not all that nice so I am trying the ideas I want for the "finished" paint. Mask it off and buy some rattle cans and have at it!

              RE: side stripes

              I always liked the 1970 'Boss 302' stripes coming down off the hood.

              I'll bet that would look pretty cool using the '71 Mach 1 hood template to start off the big center stripe, then a smaller stripe to wrap down to the fender in the typical 1970 'Boss 302' area (except with a Mach 1 logo in the break).

              I don't see why the 'C' stripe won't look cool either.

                I like the C stripes. Maybe someone could photoshop the C stripes on a picture of your car for you.

                  I like 'em, too. I say give it a shot - I think they would look pretty hot.
