Hey guys, I need to know what you guys think. I Just got my 99 STS painted again and it look brand new. I am really excitied.

Before i had it painted, I had gold pin stripes on it. My friend said it looks much better with out pin strips. Can anyone give me suggests? I personally am somewhat what more inclinded to getting the pin stripes, but maybe that is becuase I am accustomed to having them on there.

Please chime in. Thanks

My 01 has them, and I don't really notice them. I'd say it's really just all about what you think looks best. It's your car :yup:

I like the look of the pinstripes but I don't think that they're that necessary on our cars beacause of the curves that the body has going down the length of the car. I don't have them on my pearl white 99 SLS. I'm sure that it would look good with them, but, it looks just as good without. Depending on the color of your car and the stripes, it might add some of that extra class to it. Speaking of which, what colr is your car repainted to and what color pinstripes are you thinking about getting?

I prefer pinstripes.. My 00' came with 2 packages of pinstripes.. One from factory (painted) and another I assume came with the rag top that is just like decals. I cant seem to crop my pictures.. But ill work on it and post it.

I had some gold tape pinstripes on my 96 eldo, but they were peeling so I took them off. I ended up getting some hand painted silver ones put back on and they look great.

Pinstripes on suits - good.
Pinstripes on the STS - not as good (personal opinion)

I would agree that some colors are better suited to them. Dowhatchalike, all there is to it. No one else is paying for your car, so who cares what they think?

The pin stripe enhances the beauty of the car. Stripes all the way(IMO).
