They look alright on rally cars as they are needed for competition thus make it look good because they have a purpose, on your car they dont look right in my opinion

Isnt your car really low?

Also the way I see your car is it having a style/stance image instead of a pure performance image, (not a bad thing I might add, your car is an inspiration for me as I am wanting mine to look as distinctive as yours)

Personally I am a firm believer in less is more, I think the back of your car looks sweet without them,

I am the same though, I have loads of bits that were good ideas at the time but never fitted, all part of the fun :)

They would Look a lot better if you cut them so they fit under the arches and half of the tyre is covered. or a bit more than half.

the two stripes are gloss black, same as my bonnet and the GT stripes down the side as Bruce is satin black, so just adds a bit of contrast :)
and as per my original post "obviously i need to cut them down (a lot) lol"
