New to this site. Just traded my 2014 GT500 with 800 miles for a 2016 track pack GT 350 with less than 500 miles. Previous owner traded for a new 350R. 350 is Race Red with black stripe. Wasn't too keen on the white outline stripe. A bit too much contrast so I added a flat black outline over the white. Didn't mean to duplicate pictures, but I'm a rookie at this.

I ended up removing the flat black pinstripes, exposing the original white stripes because the flat black next to red tended to make the red look orange. The pictures tend to show it. Perhaps it was an optical illusion. Also, the flat black pin stripes make waxing the car more difficult and time consuming. Buffing next to the stripe is a challenge, trying to prevent the flat black from becoming glossy and trying to eliminate the white wax line.

Agree in your pics above it looks more orange than red...nice thing about tape, comes off easily, can you find gloss black to cover the white?

Never found a gloss black that matched the factory gloss black. Tried a gray, but just didn't like the look. Now that I've gotten used to the factory white, I'm OK with it, especially knowing I don't have to worry about a wax line.
