That's awesome but I really don't want the mach 1 decal too long. I just wanted to practice because I plan on doing the gt500 stripes all the way down eventually and mine seriously looks just as good as vinyl I was so surprised how amazing it turned out

Thank you so much for that picture haha every other one I've seen has too thin of a line in between to put tape there. That's like the exact measurements I've been looking for. I love 1slos but it's too fancy to do the little lines in between and the ones I have are way too thick that looks badass dude

Oh don't get me wrong I love mine too (awesome car btw) but the drips are small and almost completely unnoticeable I just hate that I have to match the other side haha it took me like 15 minutes to perfect the measurements haha I'm way too perfectionist for a temporary spray haha

Thanks. Well really you don't have to match the other side. You know I'm not 100% sure but usually you only do one side if your doing hash tags. Most I have seen only have one side (the driver side) I have seen a couple with both but I like the one side much more my opinion. My buddy has a 2000 with hash tags like mine and they look sweet!

You spray a light coat and wait a minute. Then do a couple more coats with a minute between each one then a heavy coat and take the tape off. You should have a clean line because you only waited like 4 mins total

Make sure you use good tape that looks like it wasn't sealed to the car good.

They hashes were used to indicate which side the driver was on if a racing team had two similar looking cars in RHD and LHD. I don't know if teams do it now though. Honestly when I see the stripes it just reminds me of a Corvette now

Id like to do my hood scoop and wing. Did you guys prep the area in a special way? Will the wax cause it to not stick. Also the clearcoat is starting to flake on my wing, will this show thru the plastidip?

Just need to clean the area that you're wanting to plasti dip. The plasi dip will not stick and bond right with wax on it. I used a rag and lacquer thinner and just used a little bit on the rag at a time and wiped the whole area that was being plasti dipped. Don't use to much on the paint at a time it will eat the paint. And your clear coat shouldn't be visible at all one you plasti dip your car. Make sure to use enough coats!

Ok so I love the mach 1 stripe but I feel like I need to do more. I've become addicted to plasti dip and I have never seen this in person but I plan on doing gt500 stripes in matte black. Is this a good idea? Or does it look better how it is? Note: I have the fender hashes on and will keep them on

I also was fascinated with plastidip. After a while though, you will probably grow to hate it. Maybe it's just me. I just use it to paint my emblems.

+1. I did it on my 07 GT. It will eventually peel or flake..especially on wheels and look like ****...it is a cheap fix but now that I have to do it over again I would not even think about putting that crap on my car...ill just buy wheels or whatever I want already painted...more expensive but a lot better in the long run IMO

Well no one uses it with the impression of it being permanent. I just did my gt500 stripe too like an hour and 15 minutes and I love having the capability to change the look so dramatically for like $6 haha
