Need Pinstripe advice

Hello, forum noob here. Just bought a 2018 Honda Civic EX-T. Friggin LOVE the car. I have been a GM man all my life, but WOW, loving this car!!! Anyways, when I purchased it, they threw in free pinstriping. Id like your opinions on what color pinstriping would look good on my new ride. Pic is attached, interior is black.

Thanks,
Chas

Welcome and great looking ride!

I prefer no pinstripe but I would say white or black. Probably black so it doesn't stick out as much.

Curious what made you go to the Civic?

Thank you!!
Love the sporty look of the civic, great gas mileage, so I test drove it. After the test drive, it was a no brainer.

Re: Need Pinstripe advice

It is a sharp looking car and Honda has found its grove again! I would love to test drive one but I know I shouldn’t because I’ll want one lol.

Welcome to the family and enjoy the new ride. Not much in the 10th gen section yet but it shouldn’t take long before it is filled with tons of useful info!

Re: Need Pinstripe advice

among other things, i pinstripe cars for a living. if you do not like it you can always peel it off, which is very easy if you do it soon after installation.

if i were to pinstripe that, i would probably do silver(metallic, not chrome) and shaped something like this:
