Plasti dip fender and mach 1 stripe

Ok so today I want to plasti dip my car, I did the rims and I'm very happy with the look of them so I decided to do the cobra (I think) fender stripes and mach 1 stripe it should look something like this. Anyone do this? I know how to, I just wanna know if it'll look stupid I have matte black and my car is Chrystal white diamond and isn't lowered at all so I'm hoping it doesn't look stupid. Any input or tips is appreciated. Thanks guys

I personally would do the mach stripe. I'm not a bug fan of the hash marks

I've been thinking about doing something like that on mine, and seeing that i really to like it, was thinking something along the lines of the same size stripes you have, but the 2 thicker ones with only one of the thinner ones in the middle of them

Thanks. With the fender hashes you did, what kind of tape did you use? I feel like the painters tape I have will be too thick

Wow that looks cool. I didn't do any of the scoop really because it's only a v6 so it doesn't rise where the scoop is. I just went around it slightly

I'm debating on taking my hood scoop out and making it "functional" not necessarily for ram air, but for airflow onto the engine to help with temps a little

the questions are, Would it work? is the time worth it?

Basically my idea is to drill out the holes in the honeycomb on the scoop and to drill out the slot in the hood in the back end under the scoop.

That's actually a good question. I'd love to know the answer. I know the honeycomb scoop thing is just plastic over metal so I can see it working, as far as functional, I doubt it would change a thing but honestly I'd consider doing it myself if it was safe and didnt mess anything up

The only thing I'd be worried about is if it started raining would that cause issues while its running

normally on other sites when i see people make the stock hood functional they end up getting water on their cops..that being said if you could build some way to keep water off that'd be helpful

I figured something similar to how the shaker works, like a lip with a drain tube

I've seen people put shaker systems in the stock v6 hood on here but the way they do it, it's just as protective as a mach 1 stock hood against rain so honestly I don't know if doing that and being at risk is worth it
