Bonnet/roof/boot OR side stripes

Hi all, ex-FIAT owner (Lots of Pandas/Uno/Sei/Cinq) now back in the fold and finally got my hands on a white 500 pop...I have loved these cars since release.

The car is white and will look great with Italian stripes...I just cannot decide on whether to put them on the sides or across the bonnet/roof/boot

I will not do both!

Would appreciate your views

Marty

I'd agree it would look good to break up the 'whiteness' of a white 500. However, there may be insurance implications if you do either. Have a read of this thread - it surprised me.

I've put stripes on a few white ones and learned along the way. Use a squirty bottle with washing up liquid and water and use lots of it on the cleaned area before putting the stripes on. That way you can move them around and get them straight. First set I did was all over the place but did them dry.
Thanks jrkitching thanked for this post
