A couple of months ago, Thramp donated his hat to Lepew. Lepew likes his new hat, but wishes it would match his suit better. The paintjob on it is beautiful, courtesy you-know-who, but Lepew would rather fix the hat instead of getting a new suit to match. So, the hardtop debatification process will soon commence, but Lepew can't seem to make up his mind on wether or not he want's stripes or no stripes. What's a skunk to do??? I tried photoshopping the pic below to change the top to black without luck. I'm leaning more towards no stripes, but wondered what y'all thought. :D

Gotta be striped. Going solid is like mixing stripes and plaid. Ask your wife. :D

Cheers, John

Poor LePew is black & blue! Did a Corvette beat him up? ;) :D

With black you could go either way; stripeless looks kinda like a "hard" softtop. Can't tell from the pic how well the white matches yours; if it's a match, you could leave the stripes to exhibit Bat-Jeff's work, and just paint the blue part black.

Drive on!

Paint the top white, put a star on the door, slap a gumball on the roof, and run around pulling ricers over for poops and giggles.

Can someone with photoshop show it in plaid ?? I want to see what mixing plaid with stripes looks like.

Alex, I think it looks better with the stripes. If the body was solid black, the no stripe scheme would work better.

It just seems to have a better flow with the current scheme.

Just my preference...
