Lemans Stripes on a 2000 Mustang GT

Ok, so originally I wanted deep blue ralleys down the middle but the kit I got was cheap and I threw it out. Second choice was black and I picked up the 8'' kit of AM.
(11'' looks too fat on the SN95 body)

What do you all think looks better, twin ralleys down the middle, or offset?

Personally I like the offset because noone anywhere around me has the offset stripes and its more original, but on the other hand many people are complaining it looks rice (even though they are 8'' stripes not one skinny little one).

Also, I have a non functional hood scoop I have from a past car ready to be painted, would the car look better with stripes with the scoop or without?

Thanks and let me know!

... and yes the scratches on the bumper will be cleaned up beforehand, a woman in the grocery store parking lot apparently thought the cart slipping down the incline was a problem, and parked her cart up against my bumper...

Where would the stripe go in relation to the scoop?

If I did center both stripes would go over the scoop if offset would either go straight down the drivers side twords the drivers seat or down the passenger side towards the passenger seat. Offset is usually more vintage oriented but if I could make it look good I'd love it. My girlfriend is going to superimposed the picture with stripes for me via Photoshop and I'll post those as soon as she gets them too me and you can tell me what you think.

Yeah I'd suggest forgetting the LeMans stripes too. I love the look of them and wanted them on my '02 in the worst way but no matter how I figured on laying them out it wouldn't have looked right (in my opinion) due to the design/size/shape of the grille. Your opinion is the one that matters though, see if you like the look in the photo-shopped pics.

Not a fan of stripes on SN-95's. But if you absolutely have to do it then center them.

If you want to see a couple pics of the racing stripes on your car check out my profile. I did black 10" on the exact of your car for a friend of mine.
