Stripe opinions

My wife's mother works at a car dealership (not ford) and she has offered to get me racing stripes as an early Christmas gift.


I'm trying to decide between (2) 10" racing stripes and a single super snake stripe.


The car is a 2014 sterling grey v6. I will probably go with matte black on which ever option I choose. I like both options, but wanted to know if y'all thought going with the super snake would scream "poser" since it is a v6.......... I didn't think it was as bad as false badging........ just looking for some opinions.

I just did my SGM with 2 10" stripes and it looks great. I did matte black as well. I'll try to post some pics later.

Just put two 10" and a ½" on each side gloss silver stripes on my SGM. Looks awesome. I've seen several with the black that look great in the sunlight but it fades away as the sun goes down. The flat (matte) gets really messed up if you accidently get wax on it.

Here is a shot of my RCM with the same stripes. I'll try to get a shot of the gray car.

I have the same color and I'm thinking about the same options. My wife is getting them for me cause she likes them. Lol

I like the 2 10" or 2 12". Like them better without the side smaller ones though but thats just IMO.

I like the matte black allot. I have seen a very deep dark matte blue once I LOVED. Almost like a matte DIB

My vote would be for the Supersnake style. The 10" Lemans style stripes don't fit the body lines aesthetically correct on this car in my opinion.

I saw a picture of a sterling grey mustang with really dark blue stripes, and I thought it looked awesome! Unfortunately my wife is throwing the veto card on that option. I guess I could just do it anyway and tick her off, but I like the matte black too. Figured I might as well stay on speaking terms with her for now.........
