Yellow stripes/accents on my black r/t

Thinking about getting yellow bumble bee stripes and possibly painting calipers and back splashes yellow as well. Looking for some ideas. wanna go for a cool wasp, hornet and or bumble bee kinda look. I'm kinda new to the detailing any ideas would be greatly appreciated. It would be cool to do different ideas on the challenger by seeing it first on the computer, maybe a little more in depth than that one that was floating around a couple of months ago that did different color schemes. thanks for all and any help.

We can do any of these in Yellow for you. We can do other text or logos at no additional charge too. Maybe someone can play with our pictures and change the colors for you.

Re: Yellow stripes/accents on my black r/t

Ok, I'll be the first to say..the bumblebee looks horrible and so does the charger one. OUCH.....It worked on old challengers because of the contour of the body and how the stripe came down at an angle on the quarter. Because this cars body is much different , it just doesnt flow.

Re: Yellow stripes/accents on my black r/t

A bumble bee stripe would be cool. The rumble bee trucks were cool also. Go for it but don't over do it with the other stuff.

Thanx,
Russ

I agree.
Challengers never really had a bumble bee stripe like that. It just does not work. If you can design one similar to the original it may look better.

Red is usually the color that goes well with black but yellow won't look bad and will certainly be different.

Re: Yellow stripes/accents on my black r/t

I agree with all, trust me I usually find all the pro's and con's about every decision before I act. I can picture what I want and some of the stripes out there may not look just right yet. I want mine to look unique and not like another black challenger.

To each his own, but be carefull what you do because your car will no longer be original. That's for those who are purists
