Stripes

Hello,
I would like to put stripes on my candy red mustang, I was interested in putting black ones. Do u think black would look nice or is there a better color?
I wanted to ask how much would it cost? I wouldn't know how to put them on so does anyone know a good place in Ottawa who would put stripes?
Thank you

I think black would look badass personally but you can always do white. Are you trying to get them painted or get sticker stripes?

Re: Stripes

You have to be careful with the stickers- they are easily damaged. Also, you will have to wax around them. Some waxes and polishes will leave deep swirls.

I have used products from Graphics Express- they are really good to work with. Here is a link-

* Graphic Express - 2010 2011 2012 Mustang Decal and 2010 2011 2012 Mustang Stripe Kits, Graphics, Automotive Decal, Ford Licensed.

Re: Stripes

the color really doesnt go well with stripes, a main reason ford doesnt offer stripes really on that color car or why a GT500 was not made in a candy red color~

No problem man. And mine are stickers that I got on the car when I bought it new from the dealership. I'm not to sure where to get them but I know American muscle has a few different strip kits. And if you have the money you might want to consider having them painted? The stripe is a little bit of a pain keeping clean and you can't get wax on it without leaving that white residue. I was considering having gloss black stripes painted on instead of the flat black stripe. Decisions desicions haha let me know if you have any other questions

White on red is a great classic color combo.
