A reason to buy stripes

So yesterday driving to work a flatbed tow truck is in front me. He hits a large bump in the road and half inch bolt goes flying off the truck and hits my brand new Gt. Now my hood is scratched deep. So I told the wife if Ford can't fix it right, it might be time to get the car striped. I'm thinking maybe a dark smoked silver color, since the car is black on black. So everyone tell me what you think. Thanks.

I've said this once and I'll say it again. White. White. White.

Keep it classy.

I love the look of ghost stripes. Saw a newer black on black stang recently and it had charcoal stripes that can only be seen in certain light. Supercool

I saw a Shelby with black matte on black and it was sick. Only color I would get on a black mustang. I don't like white then it would
Just look like a skunk. Other colors I'm not too fond of either

Well I went to the dealership Saturday. Well no auto body guys there, so at least I got the oil changed. I had to remind them that my car takes 5w-50, the blank look from them wasn't great. So I double checked them about the oil, they had to send out for it right then and there. I will have to bring back the car during the week to talk to the auto body guys. The good part of this visit is I got to take pictures of my car while on the lift. Took some pictures of a Gotta have green Boss that was there also. Will post pics later.

Wondering if matte black would look good on my 98' she is Dark Green Satin met. I also have a Ram Air Cervinis hood. Not sure if traditional rally stripes wold look good or not?

i think a single 11" matte black stripe down the middle would nice on yours if you stop at the hood and the spoiler. i dont like when they cover the whole car front to back

I've thought about a single, I know it would look good. I've never seen one on my hood. I've looked and cant find a pic.
