Default New bed stripe..pics

Okay guys, I got these stripes locally. What do you think? I had to narrow them down because they came to wide for the new body style. They are on there for now, maybe temporarily because I may have it done in paint. So this is the way of testing out an idea. It goes along with my "badging" to make my own R/T.

I don't know....
I think the stripe is way cool....BUT....it looks 'heavy' on your truck.
I can't put my finger on it exactly, and heavy is the only word I can think of to describe it.
I noted that you 'narrowed' the strip. I wonder if it needs to be narrowed slightly more. Either way, I really like the direction your heading. Turning a CC into an R/T.......Hey! Maybe that's it. The box on the CC is the shortest of them all, and it could be that shortness that is making the strip look heavy. Have you considered an alternate color for the stripe?
-OR- after taking look #53.......... If the stripe was moved back toward the taillight a little, so the back narrow lined up with the edge of the bumper, then the front narrow would go full length and allow some white between the wheel well and the stripe. That 'might' make the difference!

Please accept this as it meant....constructive criticism fueled by first impression. I don't want to be one that patronizes by always saying everything looks great, when I personally feel it's a work in progress.

Like I said above, I really like where your heading with this, and sincerely hope you find the magic combination that takes it all the way to 'Outstanding!'....instead of just 'cool'.

Good luck, and I am subscribing to this thread, because I really want to see the final outcome!

I have to agree with Brad on this one. I was thinking the same thing it looked a little heavy on the truck. I also do not know what it is about it either but it looks heavy. I think thinning the middle strip and leaving the outside strips where they are might make it better. If you have more white between the stripes might make it look lighter.

Yea that looks better Werm. I was just comparing the two and you can see where it is too big on his truck. The outter stripes dont go all the way down. They stop short at the wheel well and behind the bumper. The one you did brought them all the way down to the bottom which is the perfect width for it

Im not offended by critcism. Actually I appreciate the feedback. This is one of the reasons I went to the vinyl stripe before paint. It can be removed if I think its not gonna "work" for me. Again its an idea for a direction I want to go in, I will figure it out one way or another.
