Yay or nay on the stripe?
Here's a stripe I added to my fender the other day. I was just bored and figured why not. Now, its obviously only temporary, but, i'm just looking for options for after the truck is painted. (which is happening probably within this next month)

Now, I personally like it, but, no one else seems your I would probably make it solid between each set of pinstripes (like the old race cars were), but, what do you guys think?

Are you getting rid of the silver stripes?

I vote :att: 'Nay'. As drawn, or solid filled. But keep trying new ideas. All great paint/stripping jobs started somewhere.

Unfortunately man, I have to say no as well. Perhaps if you found a way to go horizontally with it, down the side of the truck, I'd say maybe, if it were thin stripes, but still, that'd be a little much, takes away from the SS/T striping. Those almost look like when you pop the hood, you're expecting to see stripes across the engine bay. Great try on the creativity, though, and to kind of echo brad's sentiment, all good ideas do originate somewhere! :)

Good creativity..just not quite right...without the racing stripes might be alright

bah Guess I'll have to brew something else up.
I'm just trying to incorporate red into the truck somewhere, and the side seems like it needs something.
Well...anyone got any ideas?

And, wermbang, I was kinda going for the Gran Sport/60s racecar style stripe, and its just on the fender...but, i don't know.

Anyone with photoshop want to add a cool one? :p

If you want to put a little red in try placeing red SS/T on the white stripe and replace the white ram 1500 V8 on the door with red. Maybe even a red SS/T on the back fender like the Sport modles. your hood Ram badge has red in it, it may tie in nice.
Just a thought.
