    Front view stripe option 2.jpg Side view stripe option 2.jpg Front view stripe option 1.jpg Side view stripe option 1.jpg If you've been following my 69 build you know I have decided to turn my old faded red base model Presidential Blue with a white top, aluminum slots and some type of white stripe.

    I was going to mark up the stripe with masking tape but thought photoshop might be easier. Trouble is, I don't have or know how to use Photoshop so I looked up various artists on Fiverr and hooked up with a guy in the UK who does cars. I sent him several photos of 69's from the web and my 69, along with instructions for the look I was after and 2 options for stripes I'm considering. This is what i got a couple hours later.

    I should also mention although I do like the factory GT stripes my 69 is not a GT and for whatever reason I just don't care for clones no matter how good or accurate they are.

    Any stripe preference from the photoshops? I like them both.

    Good idea! Both look good, I like the 2nd option.

    Well, I have to say I like the color combo, but not the stripes. They have an ending, but no beginning, no continuity. How about something similar to a Boss 302 stripe that goes up and over the hood, in a continuous loop ? Just my opinion.

    Of the three, I like the last, "Boss" one, but I am thinking that I would experiment a little more to see if something even better comes up.
    Seems like we should have several people here who like to play with Photoshop. I know Jalopy Journal has an ongoing thread where folks post picture of their car asking what it would look like with X changes, and a couple guys will photoshop it just for the fun of it and post. Wonder if this is something that would be popular here...

    Here is a kinda half C-Stripe.. Front view - half c stripe 1.jpg

    I like the stripe but I'm pretty much set on the white vinyl top.

    A variation. With this one you could just buy a C-stripe and trim the bottom off and trim the front so that it is thinner, and - done.
