Stripes or Chequers?
« on: December 24, 2015, 03:55:59 PM »
So I've had my A500 about a month now, and when I picked it up I wasn't sure about the red chequered roof.  I bought some tricolore Scuderia stripes from TMC to replace it with, but now the chequers are growing on me.

So, take a look at the two pictures and let me know what you think, stick with the chequers, or swap for the Scuderia stripes?

the tri colour is different , haven't seen any like that before, but have seen many with the chequered so tri colour wins for me ;)

I'd have the stripes but less gap between them and maybe a bit narrower like Ferraris have

Looks like stripes have won, but I would say go for them too.  I love my chequered roof, but the stripes will be a lot more unique.  Can't wait to see the finished result!

Ok, next question, leave the bonnet scorpion on with the stripes, or get rid of it? 🤔

Hi Iain,

Stripes seem to have the majority!

I was also looking to put stripes on gara white and purchased the tributo style Italian flag stripes from TMC a few months. I've since decided to do something slightly different (still stripes orientated!) and have put them for sale on the site.

May save you some cash if you're still looking for some.

Thanks Tony, but I've already bought the stripes from TMC.
