who has racing stripes?

Just got my stripes done. I like 'em, even if you don't ;). Anyone else here got stripes, especially on a white car?
Here's mine:

The vinyl place wouldn't do the bumpers. I did the front myself. It's a wee bit crooked, but so were theirs. I may still change this up a bit. I put the COBALT there before I added the stripes. Might take it off and stripe that part too if I have time and vinyl to spare.
Hoping to attempt the back sometime soon.

Looks awesome, but see where it doesn't line up exactly right from the hood to the roof.

What did use for the mesh grille on the bumper, i might have to steal that look from you.

I bought 'em on Ebay, but it's just gutter-guard like you get at the hardware store. I'm trying to find some of the stuff like on the top (also Ebay) so it'll all match. Or I'll just paint them white.

I bought the stripes on Ebay for like 30-35 bucks. You can find 'em cheaper, but most places didn't have purple. I then took the stripes to the local sign company that also does graphics for all of the fire/police vehicles in the county. They charged me by the hour to put em on. The COBALT on the front was from a set of rocker panels I got for like 20 bucks but decided not to use.

I know there are other striped Cobalts out there. Where y'all at????

I just ordered the striping setup that Griptuning.com has for the balt. I think it'll look bada** in black set against Arrival Blue.
GRIPTuning.com - Category Listing - Vinyl Graphics

'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.
