Stripes

Post  dressur on 26/8/2008, 7:47 am

I've finally taken the plunge and ordered my stripes!

May need someone to rein me in - am feeling almost irresistable urge to spray my wing mirrors silver, and buy MG logos for the doors!

Your car is grey. Why would you paint the mirrors silver? Suspect

To match the silve viper stripes! ( and to cover up the stone chips!)

It's not grey - it's charcoal- soon to be chavcoal!

My boss is trying to persuade me to have zebra stripes, blue ones - rather than viper ones - bit of free advertising for her. I've told her that I'll consider it if she considers paying the £200 a month it costs me in fuel just to get to work and backl!

Silver mirrors... bad! Mirrors aren't something you really want to enhance, especially MGF ones. You're better just respraying them to match the car colour. Evil or Very Mad

Rich (The shelby stripe man!) Cool

Ok - you're all absolutely right about the ears!! but I LOVE the stripes! Mine will be a littel bit thinner though - I think!

I'm not having an MG logo on the bonnet though - everyone in Oxford will mistake me for Stewart!!

I KNOW I have to get rid of the indicators - and the sidelights - and as soon as I find some that aren't extortionate - I will!!

Thanks Rich

I like the orange indicators on colourless cars. Laughing

As I have said to Rich many times I don't think the cars are big enough for stripes Very Happy

However modding is a personal thing so go for it Ally.

Cheers

Colourless!!!!!!!!!!!! How dare you!!!

I've gone for slightly thinner stripes for that very reason

I'm just excited that I have surpassed Nick and Max in the chav line up for less than a tenner!! Way to go before I reach the dizzying limits of Stewarts chav domination - but who knows what might happen next!

My father is threatening to disown me - First I buy a car that he thinks is completely unsuitable for a sensible mature woman, and then I go and put nasty stripes on it! Her hasn't been this disapproving since he picked me up from a party 17 years ago and I threw up in his toolbox! It's great!

In my humble opinion, viper/shleby stripes belong on two cars. Oddly, a Viper or a Shelby!





And anyway, You lot can only dream of having a chav car. I have a Ford ST. So I'm about a million miles ahead in the chav stakes Tongue

Shame you picked the Shelby Cobra and not the Shelby Mustang. And have you noticed that both pics feature cheap white stripes and not quality silver ones? Laughing

daved wrote:As I have said to Rich many times I don't think the cars are big enough for stripes Very Happy
Lotus have been doing it for years! And when you have a car that is a common colour, there's not really much else you can do to make it different, except for covering it in bling... Evil or Very Mad

So why didn't you go for asbo orange when you got the ST170 Stiff?

They're both american. Since when did the Yanks build a car that costs money? Laughing

Orange wasn't an option on the MK1 ST. Sad The choices were blue, black, silver or grey.
