good looking project and good luck
YES!! I think the most eye catching paint is a well done blacked out car and pinstriping definatly adds to the 'coolness' of a completely black car if done right.

but to each his own and I appreciate any paint job that is done right (no maaco or stick-on carp)

Flat black and pinstriping don't look right on late models.But metal flake works on EVERYTHING.Then again,paint it the way you like it and tell anyone that scoffs at it to beat it.
