I bought a new GT a few weeks ago and really like the white door stripes I see on the V6 Pony package. Are there any GT door stripe options out there? It looks like the only GT stripes are the ones on the hood. Seems like if I put the lower door stripes on my GT it would look like a V6??

Love some suggestions...

Personally everytime I see the lower door stripes I think V6 immediately. Course that never stops me from also checking the cars side emblems. I say if you like them then get them and to hell with what we think.

I'm with :thumbup. I see door stripes I think V6. Next thing is wheels, followed by exhaust, and then badges. It's a GT prejudice (sorry to all V6'ers but we've all got to discriminate somehow). Nothing wrong with owning a V6. They're cheaper, get better mileage, plenty of HP. It's just that I bought a GT and I wouldn't do something to it to confuse the issue. But like :thumbup says it's your ride.

I'm sure you're right - I shouldn't care what other people think! Still... I was hoping there was a striping option with GT's - at least from year's past. That way I could have my cake and eat it too! :)
Tough decision!

I have'nt seen any factory options for side GT stripes.......here's a link to the stripe painter....http://www.spectrummarcom.com/mustang/stripePainter.html

I would just go with what you want, most fanatics(like me) will look close enough to determine what they are looking at.:)

In years past there is the GT-350 and gt-500, and possibly others. So there is historical options. Just not 05/06 factory options.

Good Luck:thumbsup

Try Graphic Express. Lots of stripes for the 05/06 models. You'll have to put them on yourself....but thats a piece of cake.

I have side stripes - G.T.350 - Most non-enthusiust people think that means I have more power or an upgrade from the "regular" Mustang GT! I only think V6 if the side stripes have the word "Mustang" in them. If you look at the Shelby versions, they have side stripes with various numbers and letters.

Here's a couple of pics, one before and one after. See what you think and do what you want!

PS. I also want to get the "LeMans" stripes over the top, but my wife thinks I'll get a ticket as soon as I pull out of the complex! The town police station is just down the street. Drag!

Here is one other idea you might consider. The Ford Racing performance parts web site has stripe kits that match the design on the Mustang FR500C race car. They come in either blue or black. I think these look nice. I have a Performance White GT and I am considering getting the blue ones.

Just something else to consider. Have fun..

Those are vinyl shelby type stripes. I would think you could do better than the price they're showing. It's still just 3M tape right? I had mine painted for $650 total.

here's mine ...all paint....$650 is a deal ! $900 is what we charge to paint them...I wouldnt do it for a dime less. hard enough to make any money on them at this price.

Sharp looking car MickMach! When I got my GT I was torn between getting Performance White and putting on dark blue stripes, or getting Vista Blue and putting on white stripes. I ended up getting the Vista Blue with white stripes but yours looks sharp. By the way, did you swap out the GT emblems on the side with the tribar pony logo?

I paid 1,750 for all stripes and three coats of clear on the whole car. The clear is phenomenal.

thanks! same here...Vista Blue or Performance white..LOL yep .....I thought with the GT 300 rocker stripes...the GT fender emblems was a bit to much that close together. I also changed the rear "gas cap" to the tri bar pony. My tri bar fender emblems are off the 04 Mach 1s....a bit smaller than the 06 pony package cars.

That's funny, I had the exact same thought about swapping the fender and rear trunk emblems. I really like the tribar pony emblems on the V6's better than the those on the GT. However it is nice when people come up to the car, notice the GT emblem, and say "That's a Mustang GT, that's awesome!".

side stripes

I highly recommend Bob White Decals (www.bobwhitedecals.com) for the side stripes. They have a variety of different styles, colors and accessories. Plus the prices for the stripes are the cheapest I've seen anywhere. As for the Shelby (i.e. Lemans) racing stripes I would go with painted instead of decals.
