stripes

Hey all, I currently have white stripes on my blue Mustang. I like the look and color so please don't suggest getting rid of them or a different color. My question is should I replace them with a fresh pair of stripes or keep the current, 7 year old, slightly chipping on bumper stickers. I don't have the money to get them painted on. Thanks!

Without pics we can't see the condition of the existing stripes to give advise...but if you think they are bad then replace them

Another question is has anyone plasti dipped stripes on their Mustang? Does it look good and does it affect the paint if left on too long?

Has anyone done white plasti dip stripes on their car and how does it look? Will that affect the paint when I go to take it off? And What are some good styles for stripes. I was thinking classic 12" double racing stripe. Help me out guys and gals

I know what you said but I'm still suggesting you go stripe less

I feel you. And I appreciate your suggestion. I'm worried I'll have ghost stripes if I take them off since they've been on for so long. I really just wanna know now if plasti dip stripes Would ruin my paint more

Check out eBay for S-500 (Lemans) stripe kits. They are the quality 3M vinyl, not the cheap Avery. I've found kits for as low as $120 but most are around $150-160.
