Stripes

Okay it's by no means definate that I will be adding stripes (although I do freely admit I'm coming round to the idea) so have just been doing some messing around for a few ideas, opinions folks? I know the blue isn't a direct match for Taihiti (if anything it's closer to trophy), and I don't even know if the almost air brushed effect on the last two is even achievable, but thoughts are of course welcome.

Oh and I do squarely lay blame for my possible desire for stripes squarely on Lee's shoulders

I knew I should have killed him when i had the chance. All that satellite tracking on the M25 for nothing...

Love your colour - resist!

btw the yellow and white would make you look like a foreign ambulance.

Not sure about the pattern but I can see why you'd want something different. As for colour, I'd go for for white on it's own

Oh I think I'm pretty much set on just white on it's own, and position wise it would just be a single set on the assenger side, what can I say, I've always said I wanted something 100% unique

If you have a single white stripe on the passenger side, won't it look as though the line painter has gone straight over your car???

Trust you maggie to state the blindingly obvious, although maybe I should go for a twin ellow stripe and then try and sue Cheshire council for painting over my car? lol

My brothers after a red MGF and he was talking about putting white annaversary stripes on it. I suggested a starsky and hutch stripe would look better. He agreed
