They are all interesting. For the second one I recommend keeping the lighter color on top and the dark color on bottom. Anytime I see someone two tone a vehicle or have the idea I always recommend dark color on bottom. IMO it should be the law haha. I like the first one though, looks great. Can you make me one of those with all black and that first stripe design in a charcoal color? If you could that would be awesome! I was thinking of doing something similar but would love to see it first. Either that or like a Challenger R/T stripe down the side of the fender coming from the hood down into fender and door.

Been toying with the idea of changing my 80 and # 3 is what I had in mind. Currently all dark blu, but would like to do something different. #1 is interesting , but think on a dark color like mine , moght be too much.

I like #2....best of the three. dark on top and light on bottom always makes a car seem to have a lower stance.
