Where to buy racing stripes for 06 GT

I am looking for the best ones. Are they 10 or 12 inch. I would like the stripes to go from front bumper to rear bumper. I see Bob White and Graphic express. Not sure of their reputation. Can anyone suggest where to purchase? Can someone suggest a installer in CT?

stripes

If you're going over the bumpers, you'll probably have to go 10" or less. The factory decals are 10 1/4" with a 1 1/2" gap. I own a company that fabricates them and usually go with the Roush 7" stripes with a 2" gap if I'm going down over the bumpers.

I'm looking at stripe kits right now.

Can you please explain why you would recommend going with 10 inch or less stripes, if you are going to go over the bumpers- is it aesthetics, or is there a problem with getting the vinyl to fit properly over the bumper?

Thanks

Check out Graphic Express, http://www.graphic-express.com/01_fo...09_mustang.asp . They use 3M automotive quality vinyl.

stripes

i'm suggesting 10" because you'll have trouble installing anything wider than that over the bumpers. That is, if you want to run them straight.

Thanks. That might explain why I have seen some installations that don't go downt he front of the bumper- the only go on the top of the bumper.
