Okay, so as you can see I'm gonna get some stripes painted on. I would love some opinions on what would look best. I like the over the top look... But on a new edge it might look odd. Any opinions/ pictures of themes? Its screaming yellow btw. (I would also consider c-stripes or similar if anyone has pics)

C-stripes might be cool in black.

And the Mach I-like stripe on the hood may look cool too. My friend Evan just put one on his performance white and it looks good.

I would go with the mach stripe and maybe a c-stripe on the sides.....black obviously
and whatever you choose just keep it classy run with the body lines Ford made them that way because they flow really well so just accent their work

The white one is Evan's. He went a little wider but I think it looks good.

Re: About to get stripes painted on! Need opinions!

Go with your gut, don't second guess, don't get what others have. I took my Pony in today for painted on stripes. I got the idea based off of these stripes Mustang Matte Black Hood Accent Decal (10-12 All) at AmericanMuscle - Free Shipping! but when I dropped it off at the shop today, talking with the painter I decided to go a little different. Why because those who get these stripes all look the same, although my idea was drawn from them, it will be slightly different, making it unique and that is the key. It's your creation. Go with your gut and what you see in your mind.
