Hood graphic opinion

Have an appointment for next Friday to have a hood graphic installed, so I'd like some opinions: text, no text or do you not like the design at all? It will look like one of the first two pics, but rounded like the third pic.





The idea is to set off the hood vents without having to paint them, add some black to set off the grabber blue and use it as a bra to protect at least some of the hood.

Oh yeah, and that's not actually my car b/c it's at the dealer for a couple days and I didn't have a good hood shot, so if that's your car...thanks!

EDIT: So I'm creating this poll at work and I missed the 5-minute window it gives you to actually create the poll portion, so just give me your thoughts; thanks.

Yes, no funky font

I think I like the one with FORD on the decal. If you were wanting to keep it thin, like the white stang, you could make the vertical stripes the same width as the vents so the don't outline the vents. So essentially the stripe would stop before the vent, the start again after the vent.

I think you should get a hood graphic exactly like what's on the white one

Re: Hood graphic opinion

Thanks all for your opnions. RTR graphic lines are too skinny for my tastes, no matter how many times I try to convince myself otherwise. It would save me $ if I could. This idea combines the RTR graphic and racing stripes so it should look better than my crappy Photohack. Leaning towards with text. Still gotta week to sway me though. Thanks again.
