Pretty much a person choice based on personal tastes with racing stripes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it's your car, so do what you want with it. The only person you have to make happy regarding your car is yourself.I want to put two 3" racing stripes (with 1/8" pin stripe around it) on my hood and trunk. Would it look bad if I did not go across the top of my '09 Cobalt? Black stripes on red Cobalt.
