Black stripe for a vert
#31
@mpbsr,
I like the few inches off the right edge more.

I prefer the red one but the only difference is the width of the quarter end piece. If you look closely you will see that both scripts end just shy of the backup light. The narrower quarter extension (and wider trunk lid) make for that extra inch of black in between the script and the gap.

I agree with the red one.

Hope to do it this weekend and will take pics.

If you did it yourself, how about a write up?

Thanks

Here is the photo. Side stripes next. A friend who owns a body shop put them on for me. I will have to wait until I send he some more business before he put on the side stripes.

Not sure why the photo is sideways. Using my I pad. Never had this problem when I used my old HP desk top. Oh well.

Damn, damn, damn...Stripe went on and I did the hing thing and started to pull and smooth with a spreader. All was looking good on the right side until I got to the far left and didn't realize that the masking tape folded over and took the bottom black stripe with it. I really tried to straighten it out and did, but ended up pulling the tape with it. No way could I get ot back to the way it should have been.

So off it came and I'll order another kit.

That sucks. Things always come out better on the second try.

Well, it looks like 3rd times a charm.

To make things easier I did some research and watched youtube video's on how to put the stripe on using the wet method and center hinge. Of course I should have done this the first time.

Since I did have some pieces left over from the previous kits I had some flexibilty.

With the center stripe not reaching the end of the lid, I was able to cut off about 3.5 inches from the two old kit extention pieces and use them on the center piece to paste and wrap around the lid. 3 inches would have been fine but I didn't want to take any chances. Therefore since I used the most current kit the extension pieces were more than long enough to also wrap around the right and left extension. So when you look at it close up, no body is showing as the stripe is wraped on both sides. Plus I had to use another older right extention center piece to bring it closer to the "1" on the right side.

Very happy that it's finally finished and here's the video that I used to show how to use the wet method and center hinge.

There is glare on the extensions but no marks are on them. I'm also inclined to believe that with one Mach 1 kit there no extra pieces to wrap around or bring the center piece closer to the "1". So you're better off buying 2 kits.
