With stripes. Not lemans tho. But the best style for the 99-04 models IMO of racing stripes.

it's actually used by chevy, ford, and dodge if we get down to the basics of hash marks. however dodge seeing how they needed to revamp their image decided to make it their logo for everything but the ram series. i have hash marks and i love them

@op i had lemans stripes on my old stang. sorry no pics of it since back then i didn't care to even snap pics of it (highschool was a weird time lol). to me they look ok, but you already have rocker stripes so just remember don't over kill the car with vinyl. if you go lemans stripes i'd pull the rocker ones off

I love both my rocker and dual stripes but both are thinner and not super thick.

Hash marks? I tried them from AM. They're a pain to put on and they look cool for about a week. To me they're a corvette thing and I won't use them again.

I'm planning to put mine on this weekend, How did you get yours to line up perfectly on each side? I'm afraid to end up putting them on and one being off by a few inches on one side, compared to the other

use some masking tape to lay one out still on the backing paper...then guess on the other side and tape it. now step to the front and adjust the 2nd side as needed...just pop back and forth till you think you have it where you want it.

when laying them use a spray bottle of soapy water...that'll help you shift the vinyls as you work so they just wont stick right off the back...then use a credit card or something like it so you can press the air bubbles out...and yes some will not come out. a few days of being under the sun should cure them, but if not a poke from a needle will let the air out

sure thing! they came with a squeegee to use, so i shouldnt have any problems. I just took the black bumper inserts off of my black car.. Dont understand why they were put on by the previous owner, but the back of my car looks much cleaner without them. You were able to see the outlines of them on the back of my car

Vinyl right? If so, if you use a hair dryer, and blow hot ait on part of it for 10 seconds, you should be able to peel it right up, and move down the decal. I did the same with my inserts. they left a little outline, but it was just some type of residue or something that i had no troubles just wiping of with my fingers

Re: Racing stripes

i didnt do the sides, i did my bumper inserts, and it took 15 mins, no problems, so probably for your sides, probably 30 mins to 45 mins
