Question 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 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.

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

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
