Another Striping Question - Pics?

I am ordering a 2013 black RT Classic without the side stripes and will be adding the 392 style Rally stripes. My question is would it be overkill to also add strobe style rocker panel striping? Has anyone done this or have any pictures they could share which include both? Thought it might look good at first since the rocker panel striping is kinda subtle, but would really like to see an actual shot of it if someone has one. Thanks!

i dunno man, i think you gotta go with one or the other...

i didn't really like the r/t stripe at first, but it's really grown on me.

I agree with AKM83 ...... one or the other. Yes some have done both and IMHO it looks gawd awful. The rally stripes really look great.

Here's some before and after pics. Makes a huge difference IMHO.................

In my opinion it would be overkill. Too crowded.. I like a cleaner look.

There are people who have done it of course.. go to google and search away, you'll find pics.

..OH wait! You said rocker panel striping! I saw "strobe striping" and immediately thought of the RT style side stripes.

Well in that case, I think it might actually work if you keep the rocker panel stripe thin/subtle enough.. I am still leaning towards "crowded" though.

Thanks SO MUCH shootdownthestars! After seeing your pics, I'm actually thinking some rocker panel strobe striping might NOT be too much - even though I know most would disagree. I think the pics you provided actually look pretty cool. Still have not been able to find any examples of the look I am after (maybe that should tell me something)! Anyway, if anybody does find any center stripe w/rocker panel pics they would be appreciated!

hood only and rt style stripes for the win. I can't stand lower rocker strobe stripes.
