bye bye pinstripe. Comments?

I finally got motivated to remove the pinstripe after my last little "fishin" trip with Albino94ltd. His White x just looks too clean without the stripe, so what could I do but come home and strip it down?

The pics are a little dark as they were in my tiny little garage, but take a peek, and tell me what you think.

I started to clay bar the White One this afternoon, but lost my motivation.

I may have just gotten it back. :bounce:

After I meet a buddy for an early morning bike ride tomorrow I don't have much else to do but finish it up.

Then it'll really be white. :p

Well it certainly doesn't look bad. I took mine off a month or 2 ago. I liked the look and wish I had them still, but I don't even notice that they're gone. They peeled and started to look like crap anyways.

Comparing it other pictures with the stripe, I like it more without it. I love that color blue too

looking good.

I repainted my car expecting to put a pin strip and the door moldings back on......

well 7 months later, the ones i had are still sitting in the box. I like the cleanliness of having them removed.

His White x just looks too clean without the stripe

How can something look too clean?!?! :smoke: I took my stripes off my white X and love it. The only problem is people keep asking why I sold my X and bought an Expedition. :hammer: Pics are in my sig.
