As I think about the delivery of my car, I have been debating on taking the stripes off. Since I don't know for sure what the car looks like in person, I want to leave my options open.

When I checked out Great Americans hot rod in the yellow thread, that thing just popped out at me. (GA, thanks for letting me use your picture for this)

I want to keep the stock hood, paint the entire hood and front flat black except where a normal SRT hood stripe would be and leave that area white.

Does that make sense?

Anyone help? Thanks.

Close, can you open up the sides to follow the hood like a normal SRT stripe, like wider? Thanks btw, I can't do crap with photoshop.

It is a photoshop, but just doesn't look quite right to me.

Is this what your talking about Goehner? Reverse style SRT hood stripe? Pic would be better but on my crappy PC at work.

That's it, it does look better, just doesn't look quite as good as GA's car, his hood is obviously different and it just pulls the look better.

You want to go to a shop that does wraps and get some black wrap material and play with it a bit while you're snowed in.

BTW, I think those deep Blue stripes are gorgeous on the white. I hate to say this as it might be seen by some negatively, but I saw a Neon SRT4 with the blue stripes on white and it was really nice. I think the IE392 is has the same colors. I would keep the standard colors until another one showed up in my area, then do something different. But again, the two colors that I would have loved to had on my SRT were always white or DWB.

I think the car looks dang good with the stripes too, I am just playing around. I have only wanted white with black hood stripes, the blue stripes has thrown me for a loop, and GA's car just popped at me.

However, I really don't want to spend the extra money on a hood.

I don't normally like the T/A hoods I have seen, but that one is awesome and makes me rethink it completely.
