Cant decide how to finish my front

Here's a couple pics of my front. I did not like that the stripe kit I got earlier this year did not go all the way down over the bumper... And now I've got a chin spoiler on the way..
So I think I have 2 choices and can't make up my mind:
1. Take the stripes down over the bumper, and put the chin spoiler on black.
2. Takes the stripes down over the bumper, paint the chin spoiler Legend Lime and stripe that too.

I can't decide which would look better. What to do....

IMHO a rally stripe should go al the way down, so I think option 2 would look best

My cars stripes stop on the hood and I plan in doing a chin spoiler soon as well...I don't know if you would like that look but it's an option to not have them on the number at all...but either way would look good honestly

Your current look is what I'm leaning towards- your stripes go all the way down and your chin spoiler is black...
And I'm leaning that way because getting the spoiler painted is expensive and a PITA... I can't believe how people are wanting over $100 to spray down this one skinny little part....

Okay, the shop that I got to do my last vinyl stripe work wants $150 JUST to do tape stripes on the bumper-that's just the front bumper, down to the lower grille, and then that teeny little area under that. Doesn't that seem high? He says the bumper is one of the trickiest most difficult areas to stripe...

Maybe you can have them add a rocker stripe too at the same time for a few more bucks. Usually its the small jobs that most shops seem to charge high becuase they want a minimum price to meet.

That's a good idea but I already have rockers... anyway, I'm just having a hard time getting down with $150 for someone to stick 14-16 inches of straight cut vinyl on my bumper.... Wonder if I could pull it off myself?

I'm am going stripeless, but the mustang stripes should always wrap the car totally. Looks complete.
