Default Paint Ideas for 4th Gen/ Thoughts?

*Updated with better pictures.
So I have been playing around with a "two-tone" paint scheme to complement my wheels. Sort of a throw back to a 3rd gen paint scheme.
Painting the hood silver to match the car with maybe some stripes or decals on the side of the ram air. Any thoughts?
No bottom stripe?
Bottom gunmetal stripe only?
Bottom gunmetal with black stripe?

Default Added a black stripe

Any thoughts?
I changed the CETA mod to black and I think it looks better.

I don’t know why, but I love it. If it was any bigger it would be too much, but I like the subtlety of it.

Default Hood Stripes

Thanks for the replies. Now to figure out hood stripes for the smoothie Q hood.
I'm leaning towards the smaller side stripe.
Thoughts or comments?

Default Final Product

Finally my smoothie Q hood is finished. The custom stripes turned out great! I think at some point I'll try out the "3rd gen" paint scheme, but for now I'm satisfied and have plenty of other upgrades to spend money on.

I know fourth circle designs has a wsQ style stripe, but I couldn’t find any pictures of it.
