believe it or not i was actually looking for 1/8" stripe rather than the 1/4" here but after checking a few places that didnt have it i decided to go with the thicker one

Yeah an eighth would maybe be a subtle/classy look. good job getting that strip to bend. i tried but it kept folding.

One thing I learned from the forum, don't ask for opinions!!! Lol if you like it, do it! Everyone has different tastes, it's your car! If you think it looks good, go for it! If you want to paint a rainbow and a unicorn on the side of your car, and you think it's cool....well then it is! Tired of people on this site judging! Example...don't paint a big black strip on your hood, it looks ghetto!! Like you stole someone elses hood! (but then they have a cf hood) lol WTF? Sorry I had to vent! Lmao anyways, I think it looks ok so a yay from me!

Good job, you just made a mess of your dash lol.. Big no from me, -maybe- if it was a lot thinner and dotted like the red lining on the sx seats, then MAYBE. But in the end it depends on you and what you like.

Cut the strip in half? Maybe that will make it the size you wanted. I think it looks unique. I was thinking of doing black around the titanium interior parts myself.

ya im definately iffy on them, but hey it was only 5 bucks so if i find thinner lines like i was originally looking for i can just redo them, it will keep me out of trouble for a little bit longer then too! haha.good point "(K)illed (I)n (A)ction"...ill definately remember that for next time though

Titanium,
I appreciate the time you take and care you put into your car. I wish more car owners were as enthused as us. Having been exposed to engineering and modifications my entire 30 years of existence, you get what you pay for. I personally like your effect, but I would have used a different medium. I'm planning to do something similar with lighting with mine. Negative comments are most likely to come because of your experience level, not because of your intended effect. Performing aesthetic modifications is a right-brain activity. You have to be an artist to do it. When I first started modifying my cars, I did similar work, and over time, my modifications became more intricate and polished (polished meaning quality of skill, not chrome. lol). So I say, more power to you. Keep em coming. As a community member I want to encourage everyone to continue honing their skills and provide constructive criticism, free advice, and positive reinforcement for improvement.

meh- a lil big - myself-i'd gone w/the thinner one-
but you got a good point- of all of the mods- this is cheap,easily reversable- and best of all- its inside your car where you can enjoy it to your hearts content w/o getting the stink eye from all the haters in the world......... :)
