American Muscle vinyl stripe and hash marks install

Just slapped on some matte black dual 10" stripes and hash marks. Was my first time and sort of a pain but very do-able. I watched a ton of videos and figured why not give it a whirl. If I ever did it again it would be easier......lessons learned this time around. Here's some pix:

What kind of imperfections? If it is air bubbles, carefully poke them with a sharp needle and then push the water/air out.

Nah no bubbles......just a couple of very small cuts at the edges from being to aggressive with the squeegie. .....an edge that I trimmed too short. Not much that's too bad or noticeable unless you are looking for it.

Most times when you screw something up, you are the only one that is going to notice it because you did it and know it's there, unless you screwed up really bad.

Looks great! I love the hash marks with the 10" stripes. Looks like you did a great job! It sure is a great feeling knowing you did it all by yourself.

Thanks for sharing these with us! Keep up the great work with your build.
