No pinstripes but a racing stripe, down the right side of the hood and decklid. It will look so cool with a white racing stripe on midnite blue. Skip...:cool:

I was telling my salesman that I didn't want any of the dealer decals on my SKY, and he asked me if I wanted pinstriping left off also. He said the dealer normally puts on the decals and pinstriping. I told him definitely no stripes! I think it would interfere w/ the lines of the car (IMHO).

Pinstripping... hmm. I don't think it would look right on that car. Cars that don't have any definition or lines on the sides of the car (95% on the road) look fine with them. My girlfriend's Camaro, my mom's VeeDub Beetle, and even some other people that I've seen with Elements (that's what I currently drive, AWD EX 5-speed manual :D ) that have pintstipping all look very nice. But none of those cars have physcial scalloping and rear buldging feners. I think it would be odd to put pinstipping on it since it wouldn't look right following any of the car's lines in my opinion. As for the racing stipe, that might be neat. But I think the Sky is soo modern it may be a little off-place. A Red, White, or Blue Solstice with a racing stipe I think would look pretty bad ass since it has that retro look.

I think pinstripes are really out of style. You rarely see cars on the dealer websites with them. NO pinstripes on my sky!!! I have see pics and photo chops of solstices with racing strips and those look cool.

Just wondering if anybody was planning on getting their SKY pinstripped? If so what color combo would you go with. I remember in 1989 at the Houston Autorama I saw a black corvette with black pinstripping! It was not a joke thats how the owner wanted it, you didnt see it till it was pointed out to you. He also spoke of a corvette that the owner had a spot of rust airbrushed on it. Food for thought.
Check out http://squierdesign.com/stripes.html a link from the Sol site.

I really like the Solstice I've seen with 2 racing stripes down the hood. I'm getting SKY in yellow & spoiler. After a year...next spring, for a change I'll add a vinyl stripe or two that can be removed.

Notice that they put their product on the crap Neon but not on the little white roadster behind it.

I want mine as origional as possible. I don't want holes or stripes or anything else that can detract from the car. The only thing I might add it the cold air intakes to the engine and the Kappashield.

:agree: These are my thoughts at this time.
