Martini Mustang Stripes Input

Hey guys, this is kind of a follow-up thread to one I submitted a few months back. My white Mustang seems like a nice blank palette to add some stripes. On the interwebs I was able to find a really cool late 60's Mustang with Martini stripes from Pure Vision. I was thinking it would be cool to apply to my 2013.

I made a really basic mockup of what the side stripes would look like. I got a quote for the center stripes and side stripes of $500. Do you guys think this would be an appropriate look for a Mustang?

Sorry, it does not look good to me.

I'm an old guy and I like the classic Martini Racing paint schemes, and I like the styling of the current Mustangs too, but together ... no. Not an appropriate combination, IMO.

But it's your car. If you like the look, that's really all that matters. (And I say that without any hidden meaning or eye-rolling.)

I'm not sure about the center stripe as I believe it's a bit narrow for my tastes, but the side stripe has potential IMO....if you were to change the color scheme.

I think the side stripe look good. I am just not a big fan of stripes over the top of the car in general, not just those specific one.

Not digging the color combo. I've gone all matte black on my white GT (Laguna spoiler with black base, deck lid blackout and black 302 fender graphics), but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I got crap from a few friends for my fender stripes, but I love them. If you dig it, go for it.
