stripe install price

ok so my dad just got a silver 2011 5.0 with the glass roof, and is looking at installing a 21 inch matte black stripe down the center just like the blackjack roush. he was quoted 650 for the install+stripe, which i think sounds pretty damn expensive. he was told its 400 alone for the stripe itself. what are peoples thoughts on this? the place hes gonna get it done is where the ford dealership sends their stuff to get done, so i feel like it might be marked up quite a bit. im in baton rouge FWIW

Not sure. Bur you probably are being over charged. I bet the car was expensive.

Re: stripe install price

I would buy a GOOD QUALITY stripe myself for a far better price then pay 200 to install it. It sounds easy but... if you mess it up you have to buy another stripe and its not as easy as it looks to put a stripe on.

are they buying the OEM roush stripe or what?

My stripes were done at B & M graphics. I think hotcobra had his done there also. They usually do good work.

Re: stripe install price

just found a post talking about stripes

"So I was the one that took John Farmer (stuckonyougraphics.com) up on testing out the super snake style stripes on a 2011 GT500. I loved how the matte black on black look came out. John is a terrific guy to deal with. Helped through the whole process. Plus the cut of the stripes was phenomenal. Best I have personally dealt with (did 2 lemans type stripes on my 2006 and 2008 GTs). On to the pictures."

Re: stripe install price

A couple of times I was there I had to get them to touch up something. Usually did not line up just the way I thought, but they never had a problem with getting it right.
