Stripes for utes

As far as I know stripes don't come from factory, so I was wondering where al you guys with stripes on your Pursuit utes or whatever else got them? How much and are they painted on or stick on like the factory one?

The ute stripes are not a factory option on the Pursuits yet! But they will be on the BA series 2 apparantley. Most dealers will be able to get them put on for you when you order your ute or even afterwards i would imagine.
I have them on my Pursuit and they are stuck on, i think that with time they may start to peel around the bottom near the wheel arches where they get a bit of stones and shit on them, I have noticed on the original GT/GTP stripes, FPV have put a clear contact like cover on them around the edges.

In my opinion Charlies are the only ones I would put on a ute or a car...

As I've pointed out before, putting a number in there, as Charlie has, can only cause confusion because the numbers produced by his engine, like many FFers rides, are moving goalposts (maybe they should be displayed as a digital readout that updates with each mod (me whips down to the patents office Fastly and Furiously )). Careful of asking him where he got the job done though, as his answers (when supplied) are often brief and misleading.

Typical conversation:

COBRA:

I got mine done at Bodymold in Kingsgrove. The ute stripes have to be tapered to look right and they're already programmed in to their cutting machine.

Re: Stripes for utes

I had mine done after purchase by a signwriter recommended by the Ford Dealer. Vinyl, not painted. White on Blueprint. Stands out like dogs balls and gets heaps of looks.

Check it out at my ute's page.. http://www.cardomain.com/id/xr6ute

Would never get those orange stripes.....ever.....spew. What were they thinking..???

BARA:
I think the orange on the lightning silver is one of the best of the colour schemes.
