I'd say 2 in same color as wheels in middle stripe...like happy said maybe a little more narrow with the two outer stripes in black and maybe them a little more narrow as well. Maybe 1-2"...would have to play with that.

EDIT: Would probably also consider the reverse of the above color schemes.

I like #6...it gives a nice bright pop since the rest of the car is a bit dark.

You could fatten the stripe up just a bit and put it in the middle if you like a middle stripe more. Something like this Ring Brother's car, but without the black.

#5 for me because it's kinda unique. My second choice would be #7.

Number two gets it for me, but I'm not sure what an argent stripe is that's being suggested. Number five is my second choice, but I'd want the larger of the two stripes a bit wider than it is in the rendering.

Another vote for #2 but my vote is a little biased from my own car.

Looks great!! Did you taper the stripes at the nose any? I read somewhere that most were tapered to keep the perspective because the hood has a narrowing line to the nose.

I like argent, but here's the issue...

I live in Vegas, and I'm an alumni of UNLV. Our state rival is UNR... Wanna take a guess at their colors?

Dark blue and Silver (Argent)

It's dumb, I know, but I just couldn't live with it.
