As they say, to each his own,but I wanted to put a stripe on the hood….here is how it turned out….the center domed portion of the hood can be seen clearly from the side too…..not sure too many will like the idea but if you do I also attached the dimensions used. 3M 1080 gloss carbon flash tape.

I like it, I've seen one where the entire hood was done in black. Breaks up the color of the vehicle and and goes nicely with the black accents.

As a vinyl and clearbra guy in an old life, I can say that looks great! I agree, no point in doing the roof and the rear end has too much going on to consider that too. I've done a sh-ton of these kind of stripes, mostly on Mini Coopers and most of my customers requested completing the look by going all the way down the bumper as well. Any consideration?

Hi guys wondering what your opinion in on what I did to mine?

Question about the front below grill, bumper and splitter ….. how did you finish the tape ends ……. did you tuck the ends under (if so how did you hold the plastic up) or did you just trim the end very flush with the adjacent plastic?

that stripe is finally complete! very nice, that taper really makes it.

srt emblem might be better suited on the door, looks strange there my .02, but who will notice with that awesome stripe!
@Mpsrt8

Awesome man, really great with the pinstripe and taking it all the way to the back. what is that wrap, Composite carbon fiber? looks super clean.

nice, looks good with the red! if you decide to bring it all the way to the back that would be idea,l I think, but obviously more $$.

MPSRT8-- what wrap is yours? composite carbon fiber?

Both look bad ass and I like you guys are being different. the tapered front on the red one is very cool and great idea. the pinstripe and the weird pattern in the white one looks sick also. then to top both off you guys did that stuff yourselfs, lol no way could I so props for that also.
