Sure, here you go. I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to take any "regular" shot on my own. I had to have the shop re-do the nose and tail because the stripes were very crooked. They are perfect now. I like how the shop took the time for the duct area.



Before...

These are the graphite stripes matching the color in the sneeky pete on the nose of the silver cars.

Everyone who has seen the car in person loves it much more now with the stripes. I agree with those who think the GTS looks better with them. It breaks up the broadness of the car and draws your eye to the front to rear length.

Stripes. Graphite or GTS Blue. Thats what I'd go with anyway.:) I think GTS Blue would really make it stand out more for sure. After seeing Jasons GTS, its hard to NOT want stripes. lol...

Graphite with your current wheels, or GTS blue with a wheel change.

Or leave it solid and change your wheels out like I did... :)
(before black wheels, now brushed aluminum)

My favorite on silver is steel gray stripes, just the opposite of the 2000 yr. color offered from the factory.

i found this info for reference:
2001 - 8 inches wide, 4 1/2 inches between the stripes
2002 - Stripes are 8" wide, 4-7/16" between the stripes
1996 - GTS's, the stripe width is 8 1/4", 3-15/16" between the stripes

Plum, if I had a stripeless car, I'd go for something new. Maybe red.

In fact I'm thinking about black stripes on mine [vinyl] of course for a change for a couple years.

The striping just adds a perfect finish to a sweet ride. When I pull the trigger, you can bet it will have stripes. On a silver car, almost anything goes, very nice.

its lowered as much as it will ever be. this winter i went thru he!! with shocks and springs. the bottom of my car is thanking me for going to this height and keeping it there.

OE shocks, spring caps and a little bit of the spring nipped off. maybe for a total of 3/4" or so lower than it was stock.

the roads in NJ are tough and i do drive the car hard, its better this way but lower DOES look better.

Thanks Art...actually we haven't used Tito's product yet on the Viper~! BUT, that being said, we LOVE the shine and ease of bug-cleaning from using it on the Corvette. :)

Look under DrDj's photo gallery for more silver/steel gray stripes. This looks classy in my opinion.

Plum, no problem as I have steel gray with silver stripes, and the color combo just goes good together.

I was talking to the dude in Houston who posted the pics! Thought quoting his post would get that across!!:D:D

As far as your car, I think the stance is perfect. The dark grey/silver stripes looks killer on the silver.

I love my Flat Black stripes. I think they'd look great on your silver car, especially with your wheels.

Here they are on my Red car.

pittss2b, good one, thanks. wil see if i can PM him for more info.

Don't bother Plum, he was one of the biggest aholes to ever infect the VCA and has been gone for more than a year. Pretty sure he was asked to leave to for making personal threats.

Dirtball.
