Pinstripes are so 70's, early 80's! LOL. Let's see if anyone has a pic they are willing to share.

Pin stripes are way dated..... after they were dated....only dealerships put those on, not manufactures of today.... They ruin the lines of a vehicle of today!!!

I got free pinstriping with my Earl Sheib $299 paint job on my '82 Honda back in the day 😁

Please don't do it to your MDX...very ghetto.

I think it really depends on the color of the Body, like my white refrigerator look.
Now it really stands out from the crowd...
To each his own...

Don't do it sir. Not on this car at least, it won't look good. I guess unless it is really subtle but I suggest to spend that money somewhere else on the car.

Pinstripes turn the MDX into a Enclave clone. I have seen plenty of those with pinstripes. Not a fan.

You guys tripping. Some pinstriped cars do look good. Some guys go over board, and some cars will look better with them. My MDX has a thin black strip on each side....matches the Ebony interior. Looks nice!

I’ve had my ‘18 for a week. It’s black copper pearl. Really like the color, in the sun it’s metallic deep brown. In the garage, it’s black. But under any light it has a tan pinstripe. I’m 90% confident it will be removed. Possibly this afternoon. Want my wife’s opinion first and haven’t thought to do that yet. I agree with all the prior posts. It looks nice, even matches my license plate, but hello 1979...

Update: pinstripe gone. Changes the look tremendously. Now my X looks like everyone elses’ Except I’ve yet to see any black copper out there...

The last pinstriping I had was on my 1982 Honda Accord.
