Along with the stripes being matte black.

Ok let me first compliment you they look really nice, I was thinking of getting my sides and back done at a body shop but due to the make of the materials it would be pretty expensive, what prep work did you do to them before paint?

Umm measurements. MAKE SURE THEY R STRAIGHT. Last thing u want is to look at them and they b like lop sided. Haha so Measure across ur hood and get the middle. Then tape. Then move down about 5 inches and do the same. And umm also make sure u cover like most of ur car. I didn't and had to use "goo gone" and even though it worked fine it was a pain getting it all off. So cover it up plenty. Umm also I'd get like a putty knife or somethin plastic but sturdy and when u pull the tape up, put the knife or whatever plastic at the edge and then pull the tape for a clean cut edge. But 1 thing I can't stress enough is time. Take. Your. Time. It look me 2 days and I still shoulda went slower. So take your time, measure correctly and think everything through.

Also wash ur car if that isn't an obvious. And make sure it's dry b4 u start. I'd do it in a garage or something. Where I did mine.

If I remember correctly its called a drift charm. Has many meaning one being to show how low the car is to the ground but I may be mistaken

Quite a significant value. +50 hp and 70 torque add that with my 7 and a half inch pistons and the randomness and color of it, which helps distract my opponent, it blows 5.0s left and right haha
