Pin Stripes

Does anyone have pinstripes on their RAV4. I was looking at the idea of adding them to my wifes new 2008 blizzard pearl V6 limited. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas/suggestions as to style and loc on vehicle where they might look the best? I am thinking one on each side running from headlight to taillight about half way between door handle and window molding. Does anyone have any pics of pinstripe on a RAV4?

Perhaps not doing it all is the best route?

The dealer put a tan/gold pin stripe on our blz pearl that goes from corner of headlight to top of back window . I think it looks great. I dont know if you can see it in my album pics.

I think the pinstripes look awesome; they really set off the lines of the Rav.

I think the body needed something to break it up. I bought chrome door handle covers but I'm waiting for 60+ temps to install. I set them on to see what they look like. Very nice. I will post pics once thier on.

I had chrome door cover handles on my Flint Mica, but eventually took them off. Too much contrast in the end. However on your Blizzard Pearl chrome door handles might look better.

Got a little Captain in ya?....aaarrrggghhh

luigi524td,
that is just AWESOME, beautiful and the best I have ever seen on a vehicle. Kudos to who ever the ARTIST was that done it. I am impressed to say the least and adding the initials on each side just makes it that much more personalized. Our Rav4 has the blizzard pearl paint with the ash (lt gray) leather interior. What color combo would you recommend for the dual pinstripe? I would like to use your RAV4 as a model to do ours if you do not mind.

scott h,
I agree with you about the door handles on the Blizzard Pearl as chrome seems to look good against white paint. I checked out your pinstripe in your album but couldn't see it very well. It looks as though it is located in the same place as luigi's.
