I agree, bumper to bumper would look better. But I do love the color combo.

I wanted it all the way, but the place I took it to attempted it and then said "it was too hard" and "I couldn't get it to look right". The business does this type of thing every day and couldn't do this for my car. They did take a good chunk off the price for not being able to complete it, but I was not happy. Now I will either have to do it myself or pay another business to take care of it. Or could possibly leave it alone

It can be tricky.. If i stand directly in Front of my Car, the bumper stripe alighnment seems to be Off by an inch. But at an angle or two, the lining is Perfect. Almost like an optical illusion.

Did you do yours yourself? I am wondering how long it would take me to finish what is left?

That combo looks really nice! It is, however, kinda crying for the front to be done. I wonder if you could use masking tape from the hood down and try and follow that inside line. Measure the gap between the stripes on the hood, and then match that gap down on the bumper. You can measure between the insides of both turn signals to find center. That's how I would start. It'll take some careful measuring, but you'll get it.
