Ok..pinstriping done..now the extras

Hi guys,

finally had my pinstriping done. Now my next self project is to get my bull bar....rear bumper guard and side steps installed...I am also getting OEM front bug deflector, OEM Sun roof wind deflector, OEM deluxe front and read splash guards and also rain guards for the window....these will be all black....the only chrome add on I am going to install is the tail light covers....

Yes..I am sure you can tell I am a Harley Rider with the pinstriping colors and emblem on the back,

Took pics this morning before the sun was up when I left for work so pics are not that great. I will post more after the other additions are done (maybe done this weekend) The orange and black really stand out on this Bronze Pearl Libby!!

Gotta admit, those colors do go very well with the paint color.
Anyway you can post another photo showing from the direct side and not an angle?

yes..I will tonight when I get home I will have them up by 7:00pm EST.....

with the 70th Anniversary Edition Front Seats, there is a tri colored patch under the badge. It is black, orange and green. I was going to go with a black and green pinstripe, but after I saw the orange on the Libby...I went with the orange and black. The colors really POP off the Libby!! I am very happy with the pinstriping....I didn't want to go to crazy. I think less is more..the pinstriper wanted to know if I wanted anything on the hood or around the windows...I told him no..just wanted a very clean look.

My wife told me after I finish doing all my additions, I am going to cover up the Libby, put it in the garage and never drive it LOL she may be right

Also waiting to see what the rear guard looks like. Where did you order it from, I don't think I have ever seen one.

I put that same style guard on the front of our Ford Expedition in stainless. We gave our daughter the Expedition a few years ago and the front guard is still strong as ever. I think you will be pleased with the quality and strength of this.

The only problem that I think I am going to have with the rear bumper guard is that I am going to have to turn off my parking assist!

The rear bumper will get in the way of the sensors...so I would have to turn them off...

Not that big a deal...but I did pay for that LOL

I guess if I hit another car with the bumper guard on...it will make a louder noise then the parking assist "beeps" LOL LOL

Should all come together very nice. I will be installing a Blue Ox tow bar bracket to tow our Liberty behind the motorhome, so any kind of front guard is out of the option list for me. Unless I could get by saying this is the going to be the front guard to my Liberty.

Looks awesome!

My father has a really good friend that owns a bodyshop/garage and does some really good work. When my mother bought her new car, he told her to just drop it by the shop. He had done some pinstriping in silver and black to it since it is an all white loaded Rouge. It looks great and gives the vehicle character and uniqueness and most important Mom was real happy lol :]

Got me drooling! What do the front end/hood area and front quarter panels look like with the stripes? I'm thinking of black over a brown shade or dark brown over a lighter brown for my 2009 Graystone Pearl Sport. Anybody know of any real good stripers in Phoenix?

I did nothing to the front end hood panels....I am adding the hood bug/air deflector so I didn't need any pin striping done on there..it would be covered by the deflector

If anyone needs a good pinstriper let me know. He is located on Long Island. even if you are a couple of hours away..he is worth it.....attached is a pic of the harley wings he did for me..as you can see..he blacked out the bar and shield part..he then pin striped the car, to let the emblem dry..and then he painted BY HAND the letters..I couldn't believe he did it by hand!
