Default To remove or not to remove? That is the question.

Alright guys and girls, I've been going back and forth with myself for some time now and can't decide. Should I leave the white mustang hood decal or remove it? At first I loved it and now I am just stuck between whether it looks good or not. Thanks in advance for the advice.

Yeah, I vote remove the hood stripe. I also think you should remove the rocker stripe on the side. Also lowered, chin spoiler, cc/smoked headlights, tint, and a gt hood scoop would look nice.

Remove the hood decal, just on a side note here if you decide to remove your decal here is what did

I started looking at my car, I just had my new wheels installed and the rocker panel stripes didnt look not as good to me anymore, so I was bumping around the net looking for a how to remove vinyl site and stumbled on this one that had this vinyl adhesive remover, well l looked farther down and noticed this one call Vinyl-Off 104, It said wipe on let it sit for about 15 minutes and then remove, its for and new & old vinyl, I thought great, so I ordered some last week and it came last night, This am I started in the garage with a little heater on the stripes wiped some of the Vinyl-Off on waited about 15 minutes, came back worked it for a minute or so and it pulled right off adhesive and all with hardly any effort I was done in about 40 minutes, This stuff is amazing. Hope this helps Here is a before and after picture

For those interested its called Vinyl-Off 104 by Crystaltek 8oz $9.75

Popular opinion being what it is, do whatever seems best to you. Don't let an internet forum influence your decision because some people don't like it. People have different tastes, but overall it is your car and you can do with it what you want.

To me personally, I agree with everybody else that it is not the most attractive thing in the world. But if you like it, cool. Who gives a crap about what we have to say anyway?

Definitely take it off. Rocker stripe needs to go too. You definitely need some spacers for the rear wheels too.

Remove all of the decals. They're tacky and take away from the overall aesthetics of the car. If they were black, they wouldn't be so bad. But since they're white, they stick out like a sore thumb.

I'd like to thank everyone for the advice. I removed all the white and put a black vinyl hood decal on. I don't plan to add anymore decals, especially white ones...lol. Once I get my tax return I plan to get the chin spoiler and headlights. Probably not going to get the gt hood scoop, and on average how much does it cost to drop it? Once again, thanks for everyone's input and as you can see it's a work in progress.
