I'm on the fence with that. It probably wouldn't be my first choice but it definitely is different

Personally, a black c stripe would look better.

But to each their own.

It will probably look pretty good.

You will need to remove your stock tape striping which is pretty easy. Just pull it off slowly. I would use the same color as the one's you have on your car now. If you get them I hope you will send a photo.

I would have to pass on that. It kinda looks like the ones on the challenger classic and the camaro.

Looks like a GM or Chrysler stripe. Reminds me of a challenger.

I like it. I might get a set of those for my Mustang. I've been looking for something other than the racing stripe, C-stripe, or hockey stick that every other Mustang has.

But, here's a warning: with those thin stripes, it will be a real challenge to install. Even with soap solution, they'll separate from the backing paper very easy and you'll never get them lined up right again.

Think of it as camouflage. People will think you're slow.

I've got some stripes like that, but haven't put them on yet. I like them with the black rims.

Get a good Window tinting shop to install your stuff.

If you have a good window tint shop around your area they usually can install vinyl stripes and graphics on your car.
I got my hood spears put on perfect by my window tint guy.

The guy on E-Bay selling you these will have or make anything you would want. He uses 3M material and offers different colors.

Stripes can transform a car. Trouble is, the LeMans stripes and Boss stripes look so good, they are done by everyone. To me, the idea would be to look around at other stripes and find what works for you. Then have it done by a pro. There are people out there, if you ask around.

Hi shunc01

For everything your getting I do think that is a fair price. I'm sure they have probably done stripes before and know how to get them on properly.
As long as the tint people are good at what they do and have been in business for a few years it is worth paying a tad more to get it done right.
The cheap fly by night guy's that do tinting and stuff out of the trunk of their car's may be cheap but you get what you pay for.
