Hey y’all. I’m daydreaming about my build and thinking about a modern retro vibe. Messed around a bit and came up with these designs. It would be cactus grey, with white vinyl wrap work on the side. Let me know your thoughts! (Added one without the pinstripe as well ;)

I think I like it better with the pinstripe too......

Not sure I love having the white wrap around under the grille like that - I wonder if you'd be better off having it start/terminate at the start of the indented character line? Just thinking out loud.

hmmmm, I like that idea. Similar to what I did in the tail. I’ll try it. Thanks!

I guess I'm the outlier, I prefer without the pinstripe. Or, if you want to break up the stark contrast, maybe go with black instead of orange.

I suck at editing photos, but after seeing this:

I thought the pinstripe one might look better like this on the front:

I think it's a win either way. Love your retro wrap design and the pop of color from the pinstripe. I would not do it in black as some have suggested - go with your gut. That said, the more I look at the "without", the more it grows on me. It's the less is more thing. "Without" looks a lot cleaner.

Looks great! Keep the pinstriping, add the retro "Bronco" script with matching hood decal.
