I contacted promotorstripes on ebay and they can do black carbon fiber or a gray anthracite. Hmmm...

I am a big fan of the "Old School" reflective graphics. One color during the day and another at night when light hits it directly.
Rocky Mountain has always given me very high quality material and worked with me to choose colors.
I have a white car with black decals that glow white when illuminated. Subtle but really cool looking.

Faux "carbon fiber". Please think about that a little more. What is real carbon fiber and why is it used in cars? What cars actually have real carbon fiber parts? Lamborghini, Bugatti etc. Adding fake carbon fiber wraps, decals, overlays etc is kind of totally backwards from the real purpose of the whole carbon fiber "thing" and would also fall into the car modding world of fake hood pins, clamp on caliper covers and plasti-dip. Throw in a shorty antenna and its complete.

I think the hash mark would look great on your car, op.

Thanks. What color are you thinking? I'm actually thinking about red now cause the 2nd color of my halos is red. Hmmm...

I'm now thinking dark grey or silver, due to the machined finish on my PP wheels.

Ordered my decals today and got a shipment notification, so hopefully I'll have them on soon. Went with silver metallic to hopefully match up with the machined finish on my PP wheels a little better.

Yep, I'm gonna try lol. Hopefully, I won't mess them up. They're just Saleen style hash marks, so it shouldn't be too difficult.

Your going to have bubbles, its pretty normal but they will go away in a week or two after your car has been sitting in the hot sun.
I did my car front to back and had some minor bubbling and after a couple weeks they look perfect, not one single bubble anywhere. Its the creasing of the vinyl that is permanent.

Yeah, I know I'll have some bubbles, but I royally screwed it up with creases as you can see. I followed the sellers instructions on mixing dish soap with water, but it just did not stay on the car. Too much dripped off. I may try glass cleaner when I get the new ones. I've had better luck with it in the past.

What I used was just just 2 drops of baby shampoo in a spray bottle, in my case an old Windex bottle.
Yeah I saw the creases, happened to me on my very first piece lol, luckily AM is generous with their vinyl.

The color and pattern looks really good! I couldnt live with the bubbles either, it would always bug you. Hash marks do remind me of the Dodge symbol but I think the size shape and color of yours is a great graphics addition and has a lot more eye catching / comment generating appeal. It doesn't remind me of the Dodge symbol either the way it's done on yours.

Thanks and I think the 227 adds a little more flare as well.
