Here you go.



Personally I am not a big fan of it. I mean I like it, but only on the cars that came with it and for those reasons. They are certain types or editions to a certain car and the tbird was never one of those. It's partly what defines a ricer to me. Trying to make your car something it's not. That Grand Sport Corvette and some BMW M series cars have stripes like that. And the Tbird doesn't fit in those catagories.

You can easily get some vinyl and just cut the strips out and give it a try. If it doesnt look right in person just peel it off. And it wouldnt cost you much either. You can buy pieces on ebay, heck I actually have silver vinyl for another project I was working on.

So best of luck.

Very much like all the fenders you can buy for (insert name of ricer here) that have those Z3 style fender vents. Looks good on the Z3, stupid on other cars. Though the stripes don't look as bad as the vents.

Just go with what you think looks good. Don't worry about whether "different", or "unique", or even "similar". If you like it, its cool. If you don't, change it. If you happen to like something that is similar to anothers car, then you have similar tastes. No crime. Just make it "your" car.

I'm soooo tired of people making really ugly cars (and no, I'm not saying you are guilty of that) in the interest of being "unique".

Personally I'd love to duplicate CobraRThunders car. Am I a copy cat? you could call it that. But I've been wanting to build a car JUST like that since before I discovered TCCoA, or saw his car. Am I going to not do it just because he beat me to it? Of course not. Its still good looking. I'll just do it my own way, on my own budget, in my own time.

Your car? I'd lower it first. Thats the highest sitting Tbird I've ever seen.

lower it with some SC wheels that have been painted black with a silver lip and you'll be set.
