Default Pin stripe ideas

I'd like to add a pin stripe to my 4th gen. The local pin stripe guy says the new RAMS are hard to stripe. All other cars I've had had a clear body crease from front to back, but not the RAM. How are you guys applying pin stripes?

That'll be a hard one....I'd go buy some cheap pinstripe tape and play around with it then show him what you want when you figure it out.

You might be right. I've been viewing some pinstripe application videos on YOUTUBE

Now that I look at the image I posted, I'm thinking from the top corner of the headlight to the top corner of the taillight .

I was planning on going with a double white stripe, but now I don't know. Now I'm thinking of a white bumble bee stripe behind the rear wheel , kind of like the super bee , without the bee.

I personally love the look with the pinstripes. Here is what I had (re)done yesterday. When I bought my 2012 Ram QC it had a single line pinstripe. I saw another on the lot that had double stripes with one thicker and one thiner line. My dealer had to replace the pinstripe yesterday because it was way off (wavy and not straight). They were out of the single stripe I had on that was a metallic coper color. So I had to chose out of what the dealer had in stock. I chose the solid black (really the only option unless I wanted two thin stripes in the original color which did not look good on a Ram IMHO). The one I chose had the two stripes with one thicker than the other. I frign LOVE how this new pinstripe(s) look. I personally do not get the debadging and depinstriping thing a lot of folks here do to their Rams. I am so proud I have a Ram I'll sport those badges all day long. Shoot, I even bought a Ram Long Sleeve T-Shirt I like that logo so much. So. IMHO, this new pinstripe looks very sporty and ads to the look of the truck tremendously. So here are some pics, hope you can even tell, they are lacking detail. One before, with the singe stripe and the rest are now with the double black:
