    Did mine as a "temporary"...

    Thanks gents!

    Here’s an outside pic. The weather has been crap so only have this one. Unfortunately the stripes kinda wash out in the light

    Jeff, that’s cool. If you ever wondered what a red pinstripe would look like on your car......

    Hola John,
    Love the color combination. Make sure you have enough room in your house / garage to store all the trophies that you will be bringing home from car events....

    I really, really like how the chassis and ancillary items are done in red to match the pinstripes. Did a similar approach with my MK4 involving the orange pinstripes and matched the gauges/trunk in orange and complimented them all with carbon fiber trim.

    Going to build my wife a 33 hot rod soon and planned on having the frame powdercoated a custom color to augment trim colors. With the frame more exposed with the 33, I think it will really pop.

    Thanks Chris,

    I'm a visual person, and really enjoy putting together the overall look. Stay tuned, there's more style cue's to come! LOL
    Good luck on the 33
