Black stripe for a vert
#11
Took me the better part of an hour, most of it doubting my own judgement and checking alignment over and over again.
I'm not the most confident person when it comes to doing something like this. Smile

I checked the link for the custom made ones and they look pretty cool. I think that's the way I would go if I had to do it again. Shame I did not know about them last year. :-(

Spring is here and I'm getting ichy to work on the stang.

So I'm back to looking at the rear mach 1 stripe for a vert. Could this one fit a little better since it is a Mach 1 stripe and not just a solid stripe?

Here's a thought. If the fender extensions are wider on a fastback and the center piece is shorter. Maybe we can do a manual cut/paste as an extention or overlap on the new stripe. Might not look bad if it's a very short piece. Your thoughts on buying this for the cut/paste?

HMMM?? If the extentions are wider on a fastback than a vert, do you just cut the extention extra long pieces off and sort of mend it on to the rear lid so it blends in? Assuming the rear lid is wider on the vert.

Yes.

This is now the 2nd time I've seen this.

If you click on the rear deck lid pic and zoom in you'll see the Mach 1 label on the left side and this stang is a vert.

While I can't find it, maybe someone does make a Mach 1 rear deck lid for the 71-73 that fits proper without having to trim and paste?

There is a company that makes the deck lid stripes for verts. I found it on the net but I don't have the link anymore.
Their description says explicitly that it is different from the standard one so it will line up with the keyhole on verts and coupes and compensates for the wider deck lid.

I found one on ebay that does this, but it's not a Mach 1 stripe.

Well, you wouldn't want it to read mach1 anyway for a vert, right?

Actually yes I would since my Mach 1 Tribute has the stripes on the side.
