Stripe idea

I played around on PS and decided to do some lemans stripes...but then decided i didn't like them...so i widened them out a bit and suddenly i love it....any thoughts? it wouldn't be hard for me to get a roll of 3m white vinyl to do this myself

I agree, I usually don't like stripes but those wide ones do look pretty good with your paint. I know I would never be able to put stripes on myself, that's something I'd leave to a pro lol

Don't be decieved by vinyl it can be a pain to work with! The biggest problem I see is your front grill where the vinyl stretches down and in. Unless you cut the vinyl into separate pieces it will be extremely hard to get it to stretch around nicely. I put 20in super snake stripes on my 2012 mustang and it took 4 hours alone just for the hood because of the how wide the stripe was and the contours of the hood.

i use to vinyl company vehicles and do full body wraps so i've got a pretty good understanding on what's in store
