I think I have a problem.. or I am just incredibly indecisive.

When I got my bright white 2011 nearly 3 years ago it came with those black/red rallye stripes. I rocked em for a while then yanked them off and left her plain white. Then boredom set in and I had a set of silver metallic "392 style" stripes installed... Now they have been on for 2 years and I am debating stripping them off today.

Ahhhhh! Haha. To be fair the vinyl has taken a bit if a beating this past winter.. it needs a serious scrub in some spots (vinyl is clouding), and there are little bits and chunks missing all over. You can really only notice it up close... but I know it's there!

Anyone else going back and forth with their vinyl? As of now I want to leave her all plain... but possibly wrap the hood & spoiler in matte black vinyl.

Decisions.. decisions.

I'm pretty happy with my Graphics I just wish vinyl was a bit more durable to highway debris but I have to remind myself that if something thrown up chips the vinyl then at least it's done it's job and protected the paint. Easier and cheaper to get a section of vinyl re-applied than it would be to fix paint chips.

Take it easy

I think it's kinda like wheels and tires, it's a fairly easy and cheap way to completely change the way it looks and personalize it. Almost gives you the feeling of getting a new car without a huge expense. I've changed mine from the black SRT stripes to a '70 style black belt line stripe and love it...for now.

I think of my car as an extension of my personality. I like to be unique and have changed mine up a few times. I removed my factory black SRT stripes and had is solid white for a bit. I have since done a wrap job with a custom stripe. If you do all the work yourself it is pretty inexpensive to do a major change. Here are a few photos of my car, first is factory stripes the second is the current look.

Honestly I'll be putting the hockey stick stripe back on the the rear quarter panel soon. There was a flaw from the factory and they have sent me replacements for the ones I peeled off

Im in the same boat. I change my mind all the time. Had the stock stripes for the first 8 months then have changed the look a couple times since. Now Duke has me seriously considering a hood and trunk wrap. perhaps a dark gray? :scratchhead:
