You got a very nice car and still trying to imagine it, especially the stripe on the bumper. I am a traditionalist, so ....

But, having said that ... I still think it'd look offensive.

Sorry if I didn't say what you wanted to hear.

:(

Don't listen to them. Listen to the voice of reason. Go for it, the full package.

Post pics when you're done.

If youre looking for opinions I am happy to offer mine.

Don't do it. Racing stripes are just that for fast cars built to be fast and look fast. A W126 is not that. If you want a Super Bee look, buy a Super Bee. Not out to give you a hard time because believe me I had a '99 Pontiac Grand Am coupe that I wanted to put Craiger style wheels on, metallic paint with ghost stripes, a body kit, scoops and spoilers...Let's just say I am so glad I never did any of those things to that little 4 banger.

Ultimately, its your car and your money so do what you like because you like it.

You can always do a mockup with duct tape. They make black, green and the ever trusty and sporty SILVER tape. Your choice.

Show us some pics and then put up a poll!

I'm going to recommend against taping duct tape directly to your paint.

yeah and while your'e at it add a cowl induction hood like i saw on a stock caddy cts last week. then put 26" rims on it, then add the logo for cocoa crispies or frosted flakes or something like that. then you can add chrome to every body panel and crease on the car, hey if you're gonna go tacky go all the way!!! i'm all for tasteful mods on a car but racing stripes on a big classy relatively SLOW sedan is like putting a Ferrari symbol on a Hyundai. i mean it's your car and i have seen worse but imho DON'T DO IT PLEEEESE!!!!!!

with all the interest in "saving" the car from me, perhaps I should auction it off so a worthy owner could care for it? going once ....
They see me trolling.....they hatin....
Please please please paint stripes on your car and post it on here
my vote is for house paint applied with a brush
