Pinstripe instead of moulding?
 
Do you think it would be a good idea to put a 3/4 inch thick pinstripe on a 2002 grand am se to resemble the moulding on a grand am GT. Do you think it would look like the GT with this pinstripe on the SE. Or should i buy some black moulding and put it on. Other recomendations?

I say, don't be lame, don't do that, and do a...wait a minute..you say an SE to resemble a GT but your info says you have a GT, which is it?

I tried to highlight for ya...

I say NO.

The SE molding spacing is narrower than the GT's, you'd just have twice as many lines going through. It just wouldn't look good.

dand2392 03-03-2009 10:58 AM

DrFabulous 03-03-2009 11:04 AM

I personally think that GTs look better with the molding being the same color as the car

alerored04 03-03-2009 12:24 PM

dand2392 03-03-2009 12:27 PM

DrFabulous 03-03-2009 12:51 PM

Ditto = agreed

I say make it clean, take everything off

dand2392 03-03-2009 02:04 PM

I love this grand am and i want to have it!!! im gonna throw on some black rims with a polished lip and then probably leave it like that. This one looks sick.....http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/h...DSC07548-1.jpg

All the different vinyls you have on it and the different fonts make it look just way too busy.

Not really, just showing you some options. I think you should leave it without the pinstripe. My old SE w/o any striping
