[quote=1968fb;4357517]Might be going to look at this car, Iím not too keen on colour of the Lemans stripes though, trouble is they are painted on so my options are
1) Keep as is
Subtle, a lot less extroverted than, say, white.
2) Change the stripes to Hertz gold which I would prefer Ė how easy would it be for a paintshop to paint them gold ?
Would it be just a case of masking off the black bits and painting the stripes or would the whole top half need to be painted again for it to blend in ?
Paint, block, buff. Dead easy.
Alternatively would it work if I bought the gold transfers and just covered over the current stripes ?
I have seen such transfers. They suck. It would be a Biblical Miracle if they even cam close, anyway.
3) Get rid of stripes completely and paint the top half black
You would need to paint 3/4 of the car to make this happen.
Any thoughts would be welcome, Iím not totally against the current colour of the stripes but I think it would be a lot better in gold
This will be of no help and just my opinion ....
The stripes i could live with BUT the white wall tires would drive me to the nearest tire shop and be replaced
Back in the 60's people too cheap to pay the extra $2 were the only ones running blackwalls. Still a matter of taste- My 66 FB has styled wheels and 3/4" WSW. Came that way from the factory. You could compromise with RWL, though, even though they hadn't yet been invented in 66.
