Default Racing Stripe

So I did something crazy and put a racing stripe on my Durango.
Thoughts?

My opinion, sorry but one word "terrible".

I hope it's just a sticker you can take off after you sober up.

I have seen the single stripe done before but never on a "D".

Is this permanent, or did you do something removable (vinyl or PlastiDip)?

Maybe you need a "minor stripe" to make it less contrasting.










Love the color scheme though.

I think y'all are just jealous of the sportier look! haha!
Yes, it is removable, and yes, I was sober (don't think I could've made a straight line if I wasn't.)
gvsu4msu, I might have to try that, and its plastidip. I'm thinking about going back over it with the plastidip glossifier so that the stripe isn't flat white.

blue on a white ram is good. any asymmetrical strip MUST go over the drivers seat.

The PlastiDip glossifier can be tricky to get it smooth. Be sure it is warm and mixed well. Be sure to not spray it too close.

If you do a "minor stripe" post a pic. I am sure that will make it more "mopar" looking.
