2007 mustang gt Vert update

So about a month ago I picked up a clean 100% stock garage queen with 50k miles. Since I have purchased I have added a brenspeed custom tune with sct x4, JLT cold air intake, corsa axle back exhaust.

I have also replaced the coolant, fuel filter, cabin filter, and gave her a nice clay
Bar and 3 step polish detail. Next on the list of maintenance will be spark plugs, oil change, and transmission fluid change (5spd manual)

I just started added some 12" racing stripes from American muscle. I will be adding the to the front number, above windshield, trunk and down the back bumper (work in progress) I also just ordered a personalized tag I am waiting on. I tried a million different things and after hours (and drinks) I came up with this one. HRSE PLY (horse play) never seen it before and thought it was fitting (with it being a mustang and being my toy to play, weekend warrior)

Really like what you've done with the stripes. Looks subtle and classy. Good job!

Good name. Hope they approve it.

All the best.

Finally completed tonight. Some minor touch up and trimming needs to be done here and there. The bumpers are a pain in the you know what. Some imperfections and it's not perfect but I can live with it for now.

What does everyone think? Both good and bad, won't hurt my feelings. Thanks

The stripes look awesome. I have been thinking about putting some on mine too. Was it a PITA to get/keep all the bubbles out and get them on perfectly?

Actually the bubbles aren't the hard part. The part that gave me the most fits was the front and rear bumpers and any transition pieces. Since the bumper is not completely flat like the hood and is curved and not straight i found the only way to keep them straight was to cut into smaller pieces. I tried to have the seem be on a corner or underside where you cant see it as easily.

With cutting into smaller pieces, aren't you worried about all those little corners lifting in while and dirt getting on the adhesive?
Makes you wonder how the shops put the stripes on - heat gun maybe?
Yours do look great!

Thanks I used the wet application and no dirt sticks to it. I used a hair dryer to heat the corners and that seemed to work well. I waited about 20-30 minutes before using the hair dryer trick to get the edges to adhere properly

Generally I am not a fan of "racing stripes" unless they are on a real race car.

But I like those subtle stripes! Nicely done.

Thanks! I wasn't a big fan of white or black stripes and wanted something simple, yet added some styling. It actually serves a purpose on the front of the car as the previous owner must have followed a dump truck to closely and got quite a few rock chips on the front of the hood and bumper. This actually hides all but a few. So dual purpose lol.

Looks great ! And now I will tell you how to IMPROVE the whole package AND be sure to not have those seams pop. Cerama coat the car. You already did the 3 steps needed prior ....now do the last step.

First wash wash wash
Then degrease the car - alcohol is perfect ..wont harm your paint or strips

Now apply a brand of cerama coat (Migliore, Cqaurtz, whatever...YOU CHOOSE). No wax needed after, car protected and you will thank me. Did my 08 GT/CS vert and my wife's 2014 Escape...proof is in the pictures ...check the reflections
