striping an allis?

Recommended Posts

OK, I am in the midst of sanding and painting my 917H. I am kicking around the idea of painting a double stripe on the hood and maybe the fender deck. I think I would use a double white stripe on the hood, (I would guess about a double 2-1/2" separated by 1/2" or so) and don't know about the fender deck yet. I think I mask with blue tape and paint the stripes. Thoughts on the concept or the procedure?

Thanks for the replies. Ardisam, that is a smooth looking 917. I hope my 917 turned 916-HB looks as good as that when I am through. Yep decals would work great. I am not aware of decals in the size I am thinking about. I am thinking about stripes down the center of the hood, just for a little panache. I may paint it (orange) and do a mockup with white paper stripes, just to see if I like it.

I actually like the looks of the old 101's. They have an offset stripe on the hood as well as the "101" in outline on the hood as well. A "916-HB" with an offset stripe would look kinda neat on your hood imho. I agree to the mock up first.
