    Does anyone have info on these pin stripes ? Why did some of the cars have them , why did some not? where there color options on the stripes ? other than photos of cars are there any specifications on sizing and placement?

    thanks

    That’s good read , good info. I’m not convinced I will like the white stripes that much against the green ......red would make the car very holiday festive! Although I think that it might look better than the white.

    I enjoyed the read too. Shadow Turquoise with white stripes? Hmm. Wouldn't be my first choice.

    What color is your interior? If it's black, that would be the way I would go. I've seen green mist with white stripes, I like it and think it looks good but bottom line, it's your car make it the way you want it.

    I can't find a pic with white stripes but here's a couple examples of black and red.....

    The interior will be off white and black, the blacks stripes don’t look too bad, the car was originally green mist , white vinyl top, white interior. I think the white and black interior will look good against the green but so far putting the white vinyl top back is not happening. The white stripes might not look too bad , as someone said in that post maybe a could try some striping tape first.

    This what is what it was originally , the white stripe is not too bad I guess . I have not made the leap to the white vinyl top though. upload_2020-11-12_9-40-6.jpeg

    I wonder why this one has some red painted on the trunk molding? I thought all of that is blacked out.

    It should be all black. It's just the owners personal preference to add some red to it for whatever reason.

    Yeah, I agree about skipping the white vinyl, it looks way better without it IMHO.

    The red painted trunk trim was a factory gs340 thing. It matched the red stripes on side of the car and red hood scoops.
