Re: racing stripes

Here's the 40th Anniversary stripes for the GT. The guy sells them in a bunch of different colors. Might want to contact him and see if he has the v6 stripes.

Re: racing stripes

i had gotten some from AM and they only carry the straight vinyl stripes, which don't fit my hood. i need the tapered 40th anniversary stripes, but good luck finding them for the reverse scoop hood...suckss

I guess my opinion doesnt mean to much seeing as how i dont have the reverse scoop but, i would think that the AM stripes would be just as hard to fit to the reverse scoop as the regular one. The stripes arent really cut to fit anything. they are 8in across (which i think maintains a bold look compared to the other ones on the reverse scoop hoods) and you have to mold them to the reverse scoop the same way you would to a normal scoop. yeah, its a pain in the butt to stand there with a sqeegie (spell check) and a hair dryer trying to get it to lay without bubbles, but i think it is very do-able.

but its whatever you like best and whatever you are comfortable doing. so best of luck, make sure to post some pics so we can all see the final product.

Re: racing stripes

i rather the 8in straight stripes, but they are wider than the scoop itself, which would make the cutting for it nearly impossible the way the scoop is on the hood. without cutting, it would pull in the stripe too much, making the outer edges uneven. the 'tapered' 40th anniversary stripes are skinnier at the front of the hood, there fore when it gets to the scoop, they are just as wide as the scoop, not wider. so all you have to do is cut a straight line in the stripe and continue after the scoop dips down.

sorry, i'm not great at explaining things, but i hope it was understandable.
