Opinions?

Honest opinion guys, i was playing around with some pinstripe tape, doing some pinstripes around my plasti-dipped "hood scoop" i guess you could call it. So the first pic was my first shot, second pic is the final product. Keep in mind i'll be re-dipping the glhood to make it fill in around the corners on bottom. Feel free to post up any unique things you've attempted/ have on your car currently. Trying to get my car into somewhat "local car show" quality for end of summer. Thanks guys.

I think it'll look better if the blacked out area went all the way to the edge of the pinstripe towards the front.

Here is the final product, not too bad for spraying it at 10 o'clock at night, in the pitch black. Lol

Honestly, it doesn't look bad... I like the idea. Is there a way to straighten out the painted edges and the stripes?

The stripes only look a little lop sided because of the camera angle lol, but yeah i messed up on the paint slightly. I'm terrible at painting. It'll eventually get a Re-do.

Just being honest, I think doing something the cheap way (plasti dip) does not make something car show quality.

Meadows Cruise Nights, they hold a local get together every saturday night from like 6-9:30. Started out small, but grows every week. All different cars from all around nothing major though

Also, thanks for your honesty, yeah it is cheap, but then again i'm not looking for awards haha, just looking to get my car to stand out a little bit. I may do actual paint if i like it enough, but for now it looks pretty decent for a few bucks.

Heres three of them, there were actually maybe 6 or more that were there the first week i was there, a few were leaving as i got there. But it's been growing every week for the passed month, so i can't say for sure.
