What Do You Think of My DYI Stripe Project

Wanted to try something different so I purchased the Foose Strip Kit.

Had my wife help to hold the large hood stripes in place while I squeeged them smooth.

Then I pinstriped around the whole thing.

Super easy to do - if you follow the instructions.

Great Results too. If I really like them, I'll have them painted on next year.

I think I have found a "side gig" which could pay for more mods.

Let me know what you think of my ride. Dave

Very nice... I did my original vinyl stripes myself as well. Time consuming but not hard to do.

Looks good. I was originally going to go with a modified verison of the Foose stripes (to fit my hood), but changed plans along the way.
