Granted I think the stripe looks really cool on the curved part of the hood by the ford emblem.
They do look cool over the emblem, but they are too close, maybe increase that gap by another 1.5"

I think they look good there. although it's hard to say if it would look better a cdifferent way without seeing it. if you do redo it just tape off around both areas and do both stripes together. no need to do them one at a time. look on youtube at "dipyourcarcom" and they have helpful vids on there. just in case you haven't seen them already.

^^^ I watched many videos, but my worry about doing two at once is that the plasti dip would dry and I wouldn't have enough time to get all the tape off intime to ensure clean straght edges. My edges came out perfect doing it like this, I just created other blemishes.

I think its to far apart maybe a bit closer together. or you could add two small stripes to the outside of them...one on each side one in the middle would even it out but that's just the designer in me talking so you can ignore me lol
