View Full Version : Let's see some rear hatch Manta stripes

Hey guys, I got my Manta painted on (without the pin stripe) about 9 months ago. I'm not a big fan of the rear stripe or pin stripes, so I never bothered doing either one.

Now, a couple of my friends have the sticker kit and the hood stripe looks ok but it's pin stripped....the hatch stripes are pin stripped too...AND they dont go all the way around the SS spolier. (just on top of the spoiler, an on the hatch)

Do any of you guys have your stripe painted on?...with and without pinstripes? ...does anyone have the stripe completely around the spoiler? I'm debating striping the rear and maybe doing the pinstripe too...and doing a custom hand pin stripe up front.

Would it look bad if i only pin striped the rear and not the hood?

Can I see pics of your rear hatch stripe....or even if you've done custom pinstriping? (like a flame or words or anythingh cool as a pinstripe)

Thanks guys!

Heres my car now:

]Here are a few of my car. I free handed these on so they are not form a pattern or anything but should give you a good idea, I don't have a bunch on good shots form the back but could get some if you want in a couple of days.

i would love to get this painted on when my car gets repainted in a year or so. i can't find it, but there is a guy who had the rear painted and painted everything in the middle of the spoiler.

np bro. i think your manta would look killer with a custom pin stripe. you can pick up the rear decals for about $25 and drive around with them for a few weeks to see if you like them

I think your friend is the best addition to your car lol. I like how your car is now, but if you do the rear manta stipe dont put a pin stipe around it unless you do the too. That way both ends have the pin stripe and match.

Soul power...that's EXACTLY what i'm looking for...

I didn't know it was THAT cheap... where did you get yours again? 4thgengraphics.com?

I totally agree, but I dont think she'd like it very much, lol.

As for the manta, I'm debating pinstriping the rear, and then doing a pin stripe by hand on the hood to match. I just think the pin strip makes the car look "classy" and it isn't.....to me it's fast, not elegant.

I also think I wont like the rear strip to be all black with no stripe, it might be too much black in one spot.

does anyone have custom pinstriping instead of a boring line? should I pin stripe mine with a custom design...front and back??

Decisions, decisions!! :bang::bang:

no ideas yet....Just maybe to do a tribal pinstripe, or flames (might be gay)...i'm not sure...maybe just words written over and over as a pinstripe.

It's Kinda funny because the shop messed up my stripe on the back... my front Manta doesn't have a pinstripe but the rear does... It seriously bothers the hell out of me.... (Hence ONE of the reasons why it's going back the other reasons are purely personal)

That sucks that they didn't pinstripe the hood...I think flat black would look good on there...since you're taking it off, try it, you might like it.

01-15-2009, 09:52 PM
If i were you, I would not put a rear stripe on. Your car looks real clean as is. I don't think the rear stripe flows well on our cars. That just my .02 cents.

Good luck with your decision.

mike, none of these cars have the berger mod... i think that is y they look good, if you stripe, ditch the black berger

i like where you're going with that. sommer eighty six in very fine writing, or even woven 8's making up the pin stripe.

Not sure if you were talking about my car?? as far as the black or flat black for that matter.... errrr uhhh.... not quite sure about that... I like the look of my color with the white... plus I've never seen it done with the white like mine before...

i was thinking something with your sEs Logo. maybe a normal pinstripe with the logo in the middle!! or a ghost pinstripe... idk

ok its a really bad photoshop :emb: but you can get the idea of the stripe in your car...

Thanks soulpower and Hiaalu.....that actually looks better than I thought because of the berger panel. I like the SES in the pinstripe as well......hhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmm.

Maybe I'll pinstripe the front with SES SES SES SES SES, I dont know.

I agree...I definately need a pin stripe onthe rear. And yes, i'd pinstripe the inside of the manta, as I've already taken it too wide.

Cobra, I've looked at you car TONS of times, lol. I agree with you, the pinstripe is needed. Do you have the stripe on the hatch? Why dont you just powder coat your wheels all black? I think it would look good!....REAL good. :D

01-21-2009, 05:16 PM
I dont have the stripe on the back, but its something i been debating for like 8 months now.. My hood is painted and just recently i added the pinstripe myself. Looks much cleaner. As far as my wheels go.. i dunno how it would look powdercoated, but your wheels look badass

Nope. If I decide to go with the rear stripe and pinstripe, I'll add the pinstripe to the front scoop too.

To add to the topic pinstripe on front like unstoppable and pinstripes out back.
