Just about to fit shelby/Roush style side stripes to my 99"cobra which is painted in a wildfire red. I had planned to make them white but I am at odds with my girlfriend over the colour. She says they would look much better in black, a couple of other opinions would be appreciated.

Go with the same color as the car. Mine are. You can see it in the snake pit under dewone.

I like dewone's suggestion. Black stripes would look better on Orange. White would look better on Red. Or even silver would look okay on Red. The red is a difficult color to compliment with stripes. It will either turn out looking great or cheap.

Like the wheels :thumbsup:

Silver would look sweet, or even like a gunmetal gray.

My father-in-law used gold for his stripes for his Rio red 97 Cobra and it looks sharp.

A lot depends on how much you want the stripes to stand out. When using other colors on red they are typically either muted or contrast greatly with the red. White is probably one of the most common color combinations, so I guess it would also depend on if you are looking for something that would be different.
