Default After 20 years....In the shop!

Finally! After a long wait, kids growing up and starting to be married off....and retirement, well semi-retired, I found a body shop to take the 68 RS to. Guy has given me a smokin deal, one which I could not pass up! Shop's going to strip it to bare metal, fix any minor stuff, align the body, prep and paint it....and I can come by anytime to work on it....real cool deal for me.

Now the discussion, I was thinking of ghosting the bumble bee stripe, but the wife wants the SS stripes ghosted. Yes I know...happy wife, happy life. I was just wanting to see how many guys have ghosted their stripes, either way. And if you can....photos please!

Going to go with the Corvette Electron Blue like Brian Lewis' 69. just LOVE the color!

Thanks for the pics!!

Iím a little confused. I thought the bumble bee stripe (IS) for the SS. Do you maybe mean she wants Z28 stripes ghosted instead of the bumble bee? If so, Iím with her, unless it's an original SS car you are having painted. Then I'd stick to the original bumble bee.

D90 for SS?
Pair of fifteen inch wide stripes for Z/28?
Ghosting would be awesome looking.

I haven't ghosted stripes in the true sense. I assume you mean painting them on with pearl. I did a red 68 that had the Z-28 stripes in black that I put a red pearl over and if you got at the right angle they disappeared. Even that way was pretty cool.
