Soapy water in a spray bottle will be your friend.

I am one stripe ahead of you! I have the drivers side on and fixing to start the passengers side stripe. Drivers side looks pretty good. I had to reverse my stripes because my car already had vinyl wording that says Mustang. So, if I put them on the right way, it would have read Mustang twice right on top of each other.

I got mine finished. I should have paid a professional, but I'm too cheap and half the fun is doing it ourselves! There are a couple screw ups, but over all it looks ok I think. I applied them reverse directions because I wanted the word Mustang to be nearer the rear end of the car.

On the passenger side, I got the placement a little too high on the door panel. Some of my edges didn't get cut perfectly and left a few jagged looking edges. I think I can fix that after it dries good and I trim it a bit.

Yeah use an exacto knife and you should be able to fix it. Good thing is those are all mistakes that no one will notice! Unless they look realll close haha
