I dunno. The Avalon doesn't really have any real crisp lines that would accommodate pin striping. I just don't see it. But, as usual, that's just my opinion (which you asked for).

Actually I have a Blizzard Pearl Avalon on the way. I was thinking of 2 thin crimson red stripes the lenth of the body just above the door handle. Or???? The car is coming with body moldings. So perhaps a small one the lenth of the molding. Just thinking.....

Well, no one seems to like my idea of pinstriping my Avalon. Even my girlfriend isn't sure. I look at it this way. I can always take them off, and it cost's less than a hundred. But...I AM going to do it. Every new car I've owned has had some kid of stripes. I guess I'm showing my age here, but I will try to post some pic's for all to judge in a week or so.

We bought our silver 05 Avalon used, and it has a painted pinstripe. I don't think it looks bad, I will post pics if anyone wants me to.

Thank goodness you don't apply that reasoning to white wall tires!

But at least you asked for opinions in spite of already having made up your mind.

Mine has some kind of silver/grey color changing pinstripe, dealer applied I assume. It has a little toyota logo on it, and varies from silver to grey depending on the sunlight. Seems to look just fine to me.

Looks good. Not too loud, and blends nice. Thanks for posting.

You know what - I take back what I said. That looks really nice. Well, up till the part with the logo anyway.

I would have never paid for it, but it was a used car and on there when I got it. The logo is a little cheesy/cutesy, but whatever.

I have been thinking about pinstripes for my Avalon. I was looking for the pics in the preceding posts but could not access them. I am looking for suggestions. My Av is black. Have seen some brand X black cars with pinstripes and they look good to me. Also, saw some body side moldings for the Av -- any thoughts there?

Pinstripes are fine if they are painted on. If you have vinyl tape stripes, they are traps for any polish or wax that you apply to your paint and will look bad if you don't remove the residue.
