    wow, do I love this car. after having to send this back because it was missing a rivet to hold his leg on, I got the replacement yesterday. I spent two hours today and two feet of pactra pinstriping tape doing this. I didn't go down the back of the car because after seeing the alternator version, I thought that was overkill. I think it looks pretty good. hope you all like!

    I'm having problems with the size. when they're on photobucket, they look ok, but when I put them here, they're 3x the size of the screen...I'm working on it right now.

    I was really confused, apparently I had to clear my internet history. anyway, there they are. I've been trying to work with some photoediting software, and I'm new at it, but thanks for bearing with me. I'd love to hear what people think.

    it's actually surprisingly easy to cut the exceess tape off with an exacto knife while it's on the car without scratching the paint of the car.

    Good job! I actually like your stripes a lot better than the alt version's. I like how you chose to keep the hood stripes parallel rather than having them taper/converge like the alt version's do.

    yeah, I had been wondering how to deal with the tapering. I saw that it was just as dead end's stripes were too, and didn't think it was too realistic, though I thought the tapering made it look like "fangs" which made sense on the viper.
