Not really a mod question in the strictest sense but I have always loved the look of the vintage bronco with a paint scheme with racing (rally) stripes. My raptor order is for shadow black and I’ve been thinking of adding stripes in either white or a matte dark grey down the middle.

thoughts? It’s not like the bronco raptor isn’t already going to stick out like a sore thumb as a unique vehicle. Why not make it stand out even more right!

@bwilly68 - I say why not? I don’t think we are all getting our Raptors to meet the approval of those around us anyway - or at least I’m not - it’s about meeting my approval and looking the way I want it to! And for the record I think the matte gray stripes would look cool (not that you should care about my opinion!)

Something along these lines…

On the black, either carbon gray to match the roof and heat reduction hood insert or a satin black to match the fender flares. Your only talking the hood, area at top of windshield, and small area below grill above bumper. You don’t want too many exterior colors otherwise it looks too busy. White would work if you change the silver on the front to black. Maybe satin silver stripes to go with silver on front, but I would want to mock that up before deciding.

☝️ This! I think stripes to either match the hardtop or fender flares would look 👌

The more I think about it, on a black Bronco Raptor, I would stay away from white or silver racing stripes or any high contrasting color. Reason is you want the racing stripes to complement the Raptor and not be the first thing noticed or subject of conversion. We know the Bronco Raptor has many awesome attributes, those should be the center of attention and subject of conversion.

I agree with both of the previous posts. Sometimes subtle goes a long way. And if black is the color for the stripes, I think matching to the flares would be a winning combination.

Though not stripes, I'd like to wrap the hood to the same sheen and color as the flares.
