[b][/b]Like the title says, I added some stripes to the Challenger.
I kept trying to decide what stripes that I wanted on it and decided to go with the Yellow Jacket style stripes.
I thought about getting them with no logo because I didn't want anyone to think that I'm trying to clone a Yellow Jacket.
The wife suggested a custom version of that stripe with HORNET since that's the name she gave the car ( I don't name cars).
Her dad served on the Hornet in the Navy so it has multiple meanings to her.

In the end I just went with the regular Yellow Jacket style stripes.
I like the contrast of the black stripes on the yellow car.

Whenever I see a guy with a yellow car I'm always reminded of this classic Jesse James interview about the color yellow:

Really like the stripes that are just BELOW the body line on new Challengers, makes the car look a little less too tall to me, compared to E body Challenger.
Black stripe on yellow car = Wonderful look!
Good decision!

VERY nice addition! I like it a lot and it's a nice compliment to the black out hood!

That's one of the reasons that I wanted to stripe it, to break up the slab sided tall look of the car.

Like anyone really gives a rats azz about the opinion of a douche bag that couldn't even keep from cheating on Sandra Bullock. laugh2

It's kind of like me really not caring about what someone says who rarely has anything positive to say on here. whistling

Instead of simply saying that you do or don't like the stripes on the car you have to make a negative comment on yellow cars.

Looks good, I think the T/A stripes look best - and its not like you'd be cloning anything, same car (even the yellow jacket)

Prior to buying the Hellcat hood off a buddy (Mike M. he upgraded to a Demon hood on his Hellcat) I was seriously thinking about the T/A style hood like they used on the Mopar 10 Challengers and going the T/A look route. It would have gotten T/A stripes in that case.
