Can someone photoshop for me?

I'm trying to see what some flat black or dark grey hockey stripes would look like on my car. If someone could photoshop this idea for me I would appreciate it



A hockey stripe like this one I think would look cool following the body line




Have it run down the body line just past the rear door window.

Maybe also do the top half of the car above that body line black?

I goofed around on my laptop a little while having some pizza. Looks kind of cool in a grey. I tried black but it comes out weird looking. (not the car the image)

Here's 2 versions:

I am not a fan. If you want stripes, go with something custom. just my two cents

I'm digging the 2-tone look. The stripes not so much, I was kinda iffy so wanted to see for sure. I think the 2-tone along the body lines would look pretty cool. Could you do the 2-tone without the stripe and possibly on this picture (and maybe a darker shade of possible)

looks good with the 2-tone and 'SS' style Rally caps.

... I'm with Ape. That treatment in theory is cool - but on the '67 it makes it look stubby in front - with a big ***! (pardon the language)

What about a Yenko-type stripe down the center body crease - flaring up a little just past the rear door following the upper contour of the body lines on the quarter??

Are the SS caps the ones shopped on here? the flat smoothie style? Or are they the "bullet" style like on the Camaro and such?

Here's the other shot you wanted. The gray ends up looking flat because there was so much glare in the original shot. I tried to add some lines to help it carry.



The center caps I tossed on it are the GM disc brake center caps that came out in '67:

Not a fan either...maybe a different color. Can you remove the post on the car??? It would look nice with the two tone like the new Charger they have similiar body lines.

Ya I think the two-tone would look cool. I'm not sure about removing the post. I guess you could use impala doors but then sealing the upper portion of the window would need to be figured out.
