Or just the hood stripe, too much with the hash marks.

Leave the stripes off; looks great without.

Don't do the hash stripes, IMO they look silly. They just look out of place on a car.They don't join with an existing stripe nor do they match up on any hood stripes, there is just no flow. Car looks great as is!

Hash marks scream dodge in my opinion, they are even incorporated in their new logo.

The hash marks originated at Le Mans, and aren't brand specific.

Yeah, it's kinda cheap how Dodge incorporated it in their logo so now when people see hash marks, they think Dodge. The Grandsport has them too.

I can't think of any Dodge vehicles that use the hash marks. Oh and you now have 6000 posts.

Well, you can't deny that dodge's new logo has hashes as well.
