show me your ghost stripes

I'm thinking about having a ghost stripe or stripes for my car. Would like to see what others have done especially with an Arctic Silver color. In my opinion ghost stripes add a little zing while still remaining classy. And what about where the stripe/s should start and end ? Front hood and trunk lid only ? Or front bumper cover to rear bumper cover ? Anything on the side of the doors ? Show me what you have done. Thanks

Somebody was on here about a year ago and was posting a bunch of pics and one of them had a 986 in block numbers "ghosted" on the trunk. When I went back to save the picture, all his posts were deleted and I could never find that pic again. I really loved that idea.

I did some searches on this forum and on the net yesterday and found some pics/ideas that i liked. My first thought was to have them painted on but i may consider vinyl.

I love the idea of ghosted stripes, it's the only way I would consider them.

I assume you have seen this thread.

You almost don't see the stripes in the picture, but I think they still really enhance the appearance.

I WANTED ghost stripes - this is SUPPOSE to be them, but they don't look very ghosty to me. I do like them, and you could see through the sticker before it was applied, so I'm not sure why more of the base color didn't show. Anyway, here are the picts:

Sherazade's ? Car - although not ghost stripes - nailed the start and stop point running frunk to trunk - IMHO.

That was what I was hoping to achieve :-(
