Hahaha oh tell me about it. I go pretty overboard with prep time when it should normally take like 15 minutes but I measure like a hundred times when a normal person would do it once but I bought the gt500 stripes before for $120 at American muscle and I returned them because I didn't wanna mess them up and waste all that money. So I just plasti dipped and I honestly prefer it haha

Well I will say that was a brave move but from the pics it looks good. I seen on the other post your saving up for a mach 1...so I can see why it is so practical! I wanna add a mach 1 in the same age era in a couple of years to my collection

The mach 1 is the reason I bought my mustang haha the shaker hood and chin spoiler just make it look soooo clean. I hopefully will have enough by December if I can sell my car for $6k which is asking a lot haha but there's this perfectttt grey lowered supercharged mach 1 in my area for 12k that's been for sale for 4 months with 60,000 miles so I'm spending nothing at all to save before its sold haha.

I wish I would have known about that Mach 1! I just bought and 06 GT for 16k and I want to get a blower! It's just hella expensive. It does look good, I guess it's just personal preference.

I would leave it on the rear valance part just remove that 2-3 inches btwn the valance and mustang I think it would look better maybe not having such a randomness cut off point..

I've worked graphic design for two year in the family business we do vinyls so that's just my .02 but if you want to go on to the flat bumper part I suggest making the equal distances from the mustang on top and bottom..
