Stripes

17 posts in this topic

Just got my stripes for mk7 today from Fords, how easy are they to fit, or is it better getting them done by a pro.

I have fitted lots of vinyl stickers (including stripes) to my track car - Can take a few tries to get used to it, and depends whether you are going over curved bodywork, etc.

If you have never applied vinyl stickers before, then you might want to practice a bit first (any vinyl stickers on any perfectly smooth surface). Biggest problem is with air bubbles, but there are ways to minimise these, check out YouTube, or just Google some guides, there are plenty about.

If you are worried that you won't get it right, then pay a pro to fit them.

I believe leaving them to a pro, would be the wise thing as I don't want to waste £201 what they cost me.

So racing stripes ? Like on a viper ? Yeh but for £200 mate that's a lot, you can get a "copy" for like Lenny said £40, and I guarantee they'd last as long.

I was being sarcastic with the term copy :) hence the brackets.

To be honest I don't care that I could of got them cheaper, I got what I wanted at a price I was happy at.

I will also be buying my body kit direct from Ford, yes it may be expensive, but not to worry it's my money.

Maybe you could ask Ford to fit them too then?
