I must disagree, Draco. There is no basis for your ranking of A, B and C except your opinion. No polls have been taken here concerning workmanship or stripe durability.
In the poll that was taken concerning stripes extending past the hood http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9238, 130 out of 166 to date have said they wanted longer stripes. That's 78% of the people who voted that were actually getting stripes. Yet you call it a minor annoyance to "the vast majority of people." I believe you have that backwards, since those in the poll satisfied with the stripes ending on the hood was only 22%. Stripe length, C, is the only substantiated reason for not wanting factory or dealer installed stripes.
