paint ideas?

I had some branches fall on my car and the insurance is going to have to pay for the full paint job! So the ? Is do
1. i put racing strips down the middle (1 or 2) 1 would be like the superstar version. Also what color?
2. Two tone the car with Kong blue being the top half of the car.
3. Just let the insurance pick up the whole tab and paint it black.

I know option 1 &2 will be little more price wise but i have always flirted with the idea of this before and now seems like an ideal time sense the insurance will pick around 80% of the cost. Im keeping black and not willing to change the whole color of the car. I think i saw a YouTube video similar to the twotone paint that i would lean towards. Ill find it. Anyway option/suggestions?

Considering ur not paying full for it. Id go all out and get something original. I have a stripe scheme i plan on using that no one else has, jus need to bills for it. If ur into the 2 tone go for it. Dont put 1 stripe on ur car.. Thats like powder coating brembos gold haha.

I have one stripe on my '13 with a pin stripe on each side. I love how it looks. Everyone and their uncle has 2 racing stripes.... put on everything from a mustang to an old chevy S 10.

My opinion. One stripe looks dumb. If everyone has 2 stripes its prob cuz it looks good.

I really like the one thick stripe down the middle with the two pinstripes on either side. Always thought that looked good.

I think Im leaning towards the two tone or the one big strip and two smaller pin strips down the center. It will probably depends on the price the shop will quote me.
