Vinyl Half Wrap, Thoughts?

I am getting ready to do a vinyl wrap on my car to make it two toned white an blue, I have been installing them professionally for about six months now so I know what I'm doing but I am going back and forth on one part of the design and I'm looking for opinions. I am going with white on top, blue on bottom and I was thinking about putting stripes in but I'm not really sure about it. So any opinions? with the strips or without?

That's pretty neat, I like the stripes. Don't know about the two tone though. I'd continue the stripes down a white bumper and call it a day.

I'm on the other side, scrap the stripe. Post pictures when you're done.

Am I the only one who thinks that looks good?

If I were to do stripes on a white car, I'd probably go with something like this:

Another vote for the stripes, but change white to a gunmetal grey...

So far I think the stripes are growing on me a lot more, I really like how clean the regular two tone is but I plan on putting more aggressive bumpers on it at some point and I feel like the stripes will fit that style better. I might carry the white all the way down the front and back so I can bring the stripes down too.

I vote nay on the stripes... instead of the sketches why not get a good photoshop of the options?
