A friend of mine, who recently passed, had silver accents on his Octane Red 100th Anniversary. It looked real good! That's not him in front of the car......in shorts.

Ok, that's really hot and the car is nice also.
I am liking the silver. Stands out on the red. That's why I didn't like the black, it just fades into the red, and white is too much.

My favorite stripe has always been the Bumblebee stripe. It’s classic and retro. I have it on my car. I’m also a fan of the Shakedown stripe

I'm going to do the bee stripe but I like it wider than stock. It's just my preference. Right now I'm watching tons of how-to's and getting all the materials I need.

Leaning toward a Metallic Silver/Graphite. I thought it would match the best with the pearl in the Octane Red. I've ordered some samples of a few colors so I can get a better idea of what they look like on the car.

I think adding the bee stripe to an SXT is considered upbadging. Considering it’s a stripe meant for scat packs. 🤔

Yes, on my window sticker it is called the "Scat Pack Bumblebee Stripe". It's specific to the model.

My opinion, it's his car and he says he is making it wider than stock and a different colour therefore not upbadging. It's not like he is adding the bee emblems as well.

Adding Bee Stripes to a SXT has been discussed in other posts and from what I see everyone believes it is not upbadging. As long as there is no bee it is just a stripe. Can't see how putting on a strip of vinyl upbadges anything.I say add it,show us pics and enjoy.

Yeah, it's fun bantering it but in the end it's the person paying the bill who gets to do what they want (As long as it's within the law. Or you don't get caught. LOL!). If someone doesn't like it they should avert their gaze. Okay, I get the whole decorum thing. But just take a deep breath and move on.

Stripes are not badges ;) I don't think stripes, hoods, wheels are upbadging. Only adding badges from a higher trim is considered upbadging

I prefer the classic hood stripe from the 1970 model. It really accentuates the twin hood scoops. That is similar to what I have on my 2009 SRT.

I like both stripes and feel that if you like them, do it! That being said, I wouldnt put it on mine, but I would definitely give you props for putting it on yours. I am seriously considering the rear stripe for my scatpack, as it did not come with one. I was thinking smaller than the factory size though. Narrower.
