Open to suggestions after painting calipers (Help!)

Hey guys I just painted my calipers blue with the G2 kit on my 16 GT base model. They came out really nice, but the pic with the wheels back on doesn't do the blue justice as it really pops when seen in person. I really like the white with blue and black accents, and you also don't see it as often as other color schemes, but I'm a little stuck as to what else should be blue. How do you guys think the roush heat extractors painted metallic blue would look with this? Any other ideas? Thanks!

I think blue stripes down the middle of the car would look nice. Maybe also something on the rocker panel too.

And as Ros said maybe a rocker panel stripe. Same layout. Single blue rocker panel stripe with red pinstripes on both sides of the rocker panel stripe.

Matte gray 6" stripes with a blue pin stripe. Like you I wanted to do something with some pop, but wanted something you don't see everyday. I love a white car with blue stripes but there are soooo many out there. I also try to stay away from black on a white car for the same reason.

Thanks everyone. I really like the GT350 stripes. Maybe those with the black heat extractors. I think I saw a post on one of the mustang forums where someone istalled their turn signal indicators into one of the vents. I might try that as well!

I painted mine red when I first got it but then went with grabber blue stripes. So I'm planning on making them blue now.
