Factory stripe

Does anyone know if the factory clear costs the cars with the stripes on? Or before the stripes get out on?

Mmk because I just took mine off and there's an outline from the stripes just had it washed right after I did it too so it's not dirty. Trying to figure out if its residue from the stripe or maybe wax from before cant quite figure out what it is and what to do

Has it sit in the sun? I would probably start by polishing the section where the stripe was.

When I run my fingernail over it I can't tell if it's going up or down from where the stripe was.

I think 3M makes an automotive adhesive remover. I of course would test it and make sure it wouldn't hurt my paint. I'd start by trying to polish it. If its a residue, it will probably roll up.

Are you talking about hand polishing or using an electric buffer?

Dirty wax build up. I would wash with warm water if you have it and dawn dish soap. This should take any wax build up off pretty easy. I would then polish it up by hand to complete

Make sure if u use dawn on it, after u polish, be sure to reapply fresh wax. The dawn will leave it vulnerable to the elements.

Yeah see how there's just that empty space under cobra on the side.... I'm not a fan I like that it says GT500 on it but I don't like how it looks without the rest of the stripe....

I like it completely taken off better than that. It almost looks like you just had a door replaced

Try this and reverse paint the GT500. Do you know a person that does airbrushing? If so have them paint the GT500 in and then pull the tape off I wish I knew how to use a paint program so I could see what it would look like. I hope you understand what I mean.

Just have it cut in vinyl. Get them to cut u a black GT 500. U could get them to cut it the exact same size as the spaces and then remove the stripe that's there.

I know I know I thought about that as well. AM sells this one which would be an easy install. But what about metal emblems anyone know where to find GT500 like the Shelby on back?

Only problem is that is a sold piece with clear in between like the factory one and has the black part on both sides of the "GT500". --GT500-- I don't know how that'd look
