Pinstriping...

I know some people love pinstriping and some hate it. Saw this Frontier at a local dealership the other day. Hard to see but the Nissan logo is included in the pinstriping on the front fender. A local body shop guy does it for them for about $40.

My wife likes it, not sure if I do. What do you guys think?

Not on a truck. Maybe on a sedan, but I don't like it on the truck.

Not really my cup of tea either although from time to time I see a striping job that I
like. To me this truck would have looked better with a charcoal or just slightly darker gray than the truck color. It could even have been two different shades of gray just a
little darker than the truck. Just a sublte touch.

My truck actually came with pinstriping from the dealership. I didn't really like so I gave them the whole "I'm not going to buy this truck unless you take the striping off" game. They had itemized it as $79 on the sticker so they through in the all-weather floormats in lieu of the pnstripe cost. Anyway I took the pinstriping off the truck about a week after bought it. It just looks cleaner without the striping.

pinstriping

I think your initial hunch about not liking it is probably your best bet.

It looks majorly gross.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

My Black Dodge had two small silver pinstripes down the side. One was slightly larger than the other. I thought it looked awesome.

I see most of you don't care for pinstriping. I do on some, just don't know if it looks right on a Frontier. My wife likes it and wants it done. Mostly because we've had factory striping on some of our other vehicles and they looked good.

You can get it in several different colors and widths. Believe the first picture was black and red to match the Nismo badging. Here's another picture silver on black. Does anyone like this combo?

Thanks for all your comments.

I think that I would prefer a darker stripe on the black, maybe a charcoal so that it has
a more subtle look. I don't like pinstriping on most vehicles but the right color striping on the right color truck does look nice to me. I like a more subtle color combination.
