NASTNASO will become famous soon enough
Default Decided to be creative today....

Figured I'd try something new so I made some stripes for the bed that match my mustang and I think it came out pretty cool. I don't like the thin ones on the rumble so I went bigger and this is what I came up with. They're black with a carbon fiber laminate and red pinstriping for an outline.



You can see my crappy rear bumper in this pic gotta put a rollpan on there next.

Here's what I used as my reference.

I like the wider stripes, I went with a 1 foot one for mine.

Yeah wider is better I think. These ended up being 17" total.

I was looking at these pics and I think maybe a little bit smaller may work better. What do you guys think should I try like a 4" smaller decal. Right now its a 10" center stripe and 2" side. Maybe go with a 8" center and a 1.5" sides?

I think you may be on to something. I agree, a little smaller might be better.

I'd go an 8" center with 1" sides.

We just put one similar to that on my dads truck. But, his is exactly like yours, but with a split down the middle, since he wanted one to mimic the stripe on his 68 Charger R/t.

Came out nice.

I would post pics, but, he won't let me until he's "finished" with his truck...lol. He has a lot in mind for it.

But, a little smaller and that stripe will look great.

The 8" center and 1" sides might be best. Right now it does look very nice, but the smaller stripes will look even better.

That looks awesome as is!!

But if you do think it is a little wide maybe go for the 8" center, then 1" like everyone else

I like the big but think the a tad smaller may be even cooler we'll see it's not like I can't just print up another set if I don't like it.
