BTW, if you need rims let me know. I have a perfect set for you in black or gunmetal which will work with your color or stripes.

Man that is a bit pricey. Don't get me wrong the wheels are awesome I would take them in a heart beat but financially my wife would kill me.

Sounds like a plan. Maybe under the hood with some shorties!? I know long tubes are better but I live in Cali and they aren't carb exempt. Then get an alarm to protect the investment.

How much did they cost? And do you have to worry about not getting wax on them?

The stripes were bought from Avery so it was a bit pricey. Amazon sells the for 17 dollars. Per 5sqf. You can wax your car just wait a week after instal. But after the stripes were put on, I went and washed my car same day.

Turtle Wax Black Box - it's a great wax for black cars, but I ordered mine from AM and it says dont get wax on them. If they are paint on I guess it won't matter but if they are vinyl I always wax around them now.

That has got to be a huge pain especially in between the stripes. I'm debating on if I want to do the same stripes.

Get Croftgate Project-X

This stuff is great and can be used on every single part of the outside of your car. It will protect the vinyl as well as the plastic trim and rubber around the window. It is very easy to use and protects against the UV rays as well as bugs and bird poop. I even do my windows with it. I was using Zaino but this stuff is much better.
You can actually use this on the stripes and it will protect them from the sun.

I need to tell you all that I do NOT work or am in any way connected to this company. I just use the products because I love how they work.

What size are they, and how much space is between the stripes?
