Thanks and you have no idea! Im not completely happy with the pinstripe...I just couldnt get it consistent all the way around. If you look closely at it (in person...I doubt it will show up in pics), you can see it waver a bit. My biggest concern is that it looks like some rat-trap/ghetto ride with the stripes bouncing and jumping as I drive down the road. If thats even slightly the case, I will so rip that shit off in an instant!

The wife looked at it and liked it too (she is a very tough critic as she is an artist and actually done some paint work for $$$). She agreed though that if its jumpy when in motion...its got to go.

PS-Being an complete and total frackin idiot, I already messed up one wheel. What a douche I can be some times! I was moving the wheels to the other side of the garage and, for just an instant to move something, let one of the wheels go...and it instantly fell over face-first and nicked the paint and tore the stripe. I felt like such a stupid rookie...I know better than that. I have repaired it and though the black looks ok...the stripe aint quite perfect. Oh well, I aint redoing it yet!

Thanks again...I appreciate it

Prostripe. I bought them at Autozone in the "ricer" section. Lol

I wasnt overly concerned with getting a top-quality stripe since I was going to clear over it anyway. Regardless, it seems ok to me quality-wise.
