Gold pinstripes on non SE Black & Gold T/A
« on: February 29, 2020, 07:31:40 PM »
Hi - my T/A is a non SE Black & Gold T/A, which has the non German decals and no pin striping (as shown in my profile pic).

Does anyone have pics of gold pin striping applied to the non German setup?  I was debating just adding the pinstripes and leaving the rest of the decals as is. 

Thanks
Darryl

I could be wrong but I wanna say the color gold between SE and non-SE decals were different. Maybe?

Thanks.  I may also be wrong but the hood bird on the non SE has both gold and yellow layers on it.  I believe the SE doesn’t have any yellow.

I “think” the gold pinstripes should match the gold portion of the bird and the other decals ok.

Actually found another thread comparing the hood birds.

Don't add the pinstripes, leave as is. The non-SE bird does look a bit more vibrant

All the 79's look like that.  I have a lot of pics, but there's no need, really.  There is a red car decaled like that which shows up at the Nats usually.

Bottom line, it looks great.

Thanks yeah just figured out the 79s look like my rear decal with the pinstripes.  It’s really just the rear that’s significantly different.  I have to get some paint work done to the T/A so I started thinking about messing with the decals and stripes while I was at it. Still undecided at this point.
