Painting Racing Stripes On Your Car
Racing stripes are what we consider an accessory to a beautiful sports car, muscle car, or a car you want to make more unique. Racing stripes used to be limited to sports cars and now the possibilities are endless. Why do we say that? Today you can customize the look of your car with racing stripes and they don’t have to fit a certain mold, they can be as unique as you want.
Your Car Upgraded
If you have a sports car, muscle car or a car you want to make more special add stripes. If you want your car to stand out or want it to have a more sporty look, stripes are your answer. We can custom paint racing stripes to give your car a more sporty and special look.
The stripes we can paint on your car can have up to six unique characteristics.
With these many distinct features you can customize, the options are endless.
First, decide the size of the stripes, how long or short, how thick or thin. Second, quantity figure out how many stripes you want. Third, think of placement, where you want the stripes, they can be all along the top of your car, trunk, roof, hood, bumpers or sides. Fourth, decide on the color and finish (like matte, flat, etc). Fifth and final, keep in mind the style which means that the stripes are not limited to being a straight line or going in one direction.
Below you will find pictures of just a few examples. Our favorite is the ghost stripes we did on a black mopar, the stripes on this car went from side to side on the trunk of the car.

“About 3 months ago I got one of my dream cars: a Camaro. But it’s not just any Camaro; it’s already an award winning vehicle, and in fact the first 2014 S620 Black Label Saleen Camaro on the road, and a legit collector’s item! But something was missing. The signature butterfly intake valves on the hood blended too much into the hood. I wanted to find some way of making them stick out a little more, and making the car even more of a head-turner than it already is. So I printed a pic of the car, and drew a stripe design on the hood which did the trick. In search of an auto paint shop that would do custom work, I found West Coast Body and Paint. When I submitted my design to Jaider, he was not only up to the task, but enthusiastic and excited about the project. I don’t trust this car to just anybody, and I don’t usually accept the first estimate I get, and usually shop around a bit. But with the reasonable estimate I got, combined with Jaider’s enthusiasm and excellent customer service, I knew I found the right guy and place to do the job; and an excellent job they did indeed, in a timely manner! I’m highly satisfied with their work, and would highly recommend them to anyone, especially to those who are looking for custom work. For those who are interested in seeing the work done up close, my car will be featured in the upcoming All GM Woodley Park car show on Sunday Jul 13th. Just look for the Saleen Camaro; it’ll probably be the only one there. After the excellent job Jaider did, ya can’t miss it; he’s a tattoo artist for cars!”
