To Stripe or Not to Stripe????
« on: April 07, 2006, 09:29:02 PM »
I remember reading somewhere in the forum, about wether or not to stripe ones stang. well, I suppose it depends on a lot of issues and ones own preferences....But I attach. a photo of the GT right off the truck, the same day it came in, we where there, of course, We couldnt  believe The difference the racing stripes made Once we picked er up. I think the stripes make the car. But thats comming from a chicks point of view,and all I kno is Im gonna miss her when the ole man takes her away to Albany for 3 weeks!!!!!

The stripes are getting very popular and with the Shelby being available soon I bet we will see them in all Mustangs in the future. I do think they add a more sporty look to the Mustang but when I see them on a Honda Civic, that's a diferent story  :lol:

You are probably talking about the Parnelli Jones Mustang? Here is a pic and some information about it.

That pic u sent..looks pretty much similar to the pic I found that I attatch. prev.. The side stripe is very similar to the one u sent. That would look good, I like it. Im gonna check out the site. But we kno a good painter also...HMMMMMMMMM  Ill check out the site.Maybe this is a stupid question..but, can stripes be added as paint?? Or do you have to use decals?? Guess ill do more research.. Considering we already have the racing stripe .....do they make them to match factory stripes?? I keep askin ya questions....ill get busy..Thanks!!

I son't think you want to have the deco painted on your car as you will need a very good painter and many hours of labors to have the job done including the addition of a clear coat on the whole car.
After a search I did find the same kind of graphics including others in this website:

I have no idea how good they are but you may want to try them.
