How would these decals look on my boat

I've been planning on eventually getting these black on chrome decals for my boat:


Here's my boat:


I like the debadged look but I've got some slight difference in color where the MariStar decals used to be. I've wet sanded and compounded 90% of it away but I think that it's as good as it's going to get until I get some sun damage on the former shadow. So, I'd like to cover that up with something.

Meanwhile I ran across the white on black/chrome equivalent for $90/pair on eBay. That's 1/2 the price of the black on chrome ones above:


I'm thinking it may be a cool look. Like the inverse of the above "black on black". Here's my best attempt at throwing the decal on my boat. I did it with Paint.net so my options were limited. My gel and the decals are both what MasterCraft refers to as "Ivory" so I there wouldn't be the color difference like there is in my crappy photo editing.

Any thoughts on this?

Didn't do this in the mock up but I would be removing the small tan Mastercraft EFI decals at the rear since they'd be redundant. That part is covered by the cover so I'd expect minimal fading there.

I really like the look of the first boat. My X30 is the exact same color combo and I am close to pulling the decals and going with the same look.

I am also going to go with registration numbers similar to these to complete the look.

The black appears to be the same decals I put on my boat last night. I removed the large X30 logo 2 years ago. This is a Crappy camera phone picture from last night. I will try to get some better ones today.

^^Whoa!

After looking at my boat some more today I think I may need to go for the black ones. I think going for the more subtle ivory on ivory look would look great but may leave the uncovered portions of the MariStar shadow looking too apparent. If I go for the black ones I'm thinking the contrast would make the slight difference in gel color less apparent.

I picked up mine at my Mastercraft dealer, Aquasport marine in Lebanon Tn. Sorry, I do not have a part number.

The Black with Chrome would look great.
