If you are going to do it , do it now. If you do it later the unfaded paint will not match.

2 reasons, 1st I think everyone knows its a Mustang...there is no need to have it on the side and 2nd I I want to put blue racing stripes... So the black will not go...

YES. Remove them. I took mine off shortly after taking it home. Cleans up the sides and looks much better IMO.

Mine came with the stripe delete. I prefer the clean look. Black on white is too much of a contrast....IMHO

Get rid of it, because previously all 'stangs with that stripe down the side were V6s.

I'm going to pull them off on Sunday so I have the time to clean the car up right after.

i prefer no stripe.. my black V6 actually has a black stripe, though, and i do like it because of the 'ghost' affect. it can only be seen in certain lighting and actually looks pretty cool, imo.
