I bought my new widebody in November. As some may remember my wife wanted a gray with black stripes.....an Eleanor of sorts. My requirements for stripes were to be wider and similar to the classic chevelles with pinstripes. I wanted them painted but wasn’t too keen on having a new car put in the shop. Well, after thinking it over at Thanksgiving I decided to put the car in the shop on 12/2. What was supposed to be a 2-3 week ordeal turned into just over 6 weeks (the shop closed over the holidays). At any rate after stopping by the shop a couple times and getting physically ill looking at my disassembled and scuffed up new car they got it back together. It finally stopped raining and I got to give her a bath.

Thanks. The stripes are painted with 2016 Ford’s tuxedo black, but 3 times the pearl was added.

That looks beautiful! As you can see from the picture below, I'm a little biased. At the same time, I'm also jealous since mine are just the factory vinyl stripes.

I'm sure it was a long wait but, now that you've got it, I'm guessing it was well worth it. Enjoy!

Thanks guys. I was unsure how the wider stripes would look, but I’m pleased. The pics don’t really show how slick it is.

From the factory they are not painted, they are vinyl decals . He had his specially painted and that's really the best way but vinyl is all the factory offers.

Here is my factory vinyl stripes,

Boy, that's a nice-looking car, Slidd! 😉 I remember always drooling at your Avatar before I finally got mine.
