Default need opinion on vynil stripes on my truck

so my bumper is peeling pretty proggressively where the license plate frame was, and I can get vynil for free and installed professionally for free... So i was thinking of laying some stripes down the hood and bumper, but I want to know if you guys think it looks super weird haha.

anywho, they'd be black, about this thick



and down the bumper like Paul's

Do it cause if you dont like it you can take it off

Be sure to use a top quality vinyl they are usually rated in years Like a 3 year vinyl or 7 year vinyl

Oh yeah, do it Matt. Thanks for using mine as an example. I like the stripes enough that when the weather warms up I will be painting them on.

I'm not a fan of stripes, but if you do it you should consider black to go with your black wheels & black grille.

I wouldn't, but if you did, go with black, not that ugly grey.
