Re: Cobra Strips

That is correct LTDHO they were infact Blue with white stripes. Of the top of my head I can't say how wide they are but I'll measure mine this arvo and let you know.

Re: Cobra Strips

And personal opinion is what make's every enthusiast unique and would have to agree with ck351 but opinion is a little biased. Don't get me wrong I enjoy looking at all thing's bright and shiny and I am allso a big fane of the GT's in most form's.

Sorry ck351 I did'nt get a chance to measure the stripes for last night but I will certainly do for you this arvo and post them up for you tonight.

Re: Cobra Strips

Well to be honest, I cant pick whatI like more, the XW/XY GT Stripes or the XC Cobra stripes. Both look great, both very unique cars.
Whats this Blue with white stripes? The only ones I saw like that were the Byrant Bryant Racing Falcons of the day (i.e. Dick Johnson) All the road going examples i have seen are white with blue stripes.
Or do you mean the car is actually blue, then they painted the white, just leaving the stripes etc? meaning if you scratched the white, blue would show thru?

That's right mate they were painted all blue first and then two big rubber mats were then placed over the car's and what was left showing was then painted white, so they truely are blue with white stripe's if you want to get into a technical discussion about it with someone.

I'm not sure 100% on how it is done but isn't there a dark blue strip between the white and the light blue?
