Re: Stripes...yes or no

Go the stripes from the factory. When they put them at the factory they go right around behind the body mouldings, creating a factory look. If the dealer puts them on they can only go up the where the moulding and the panel meet, creating a small gap that you will notice when you look.

Feedback appreciated.

I don't drive a GT (yet), but definitely get the stripes. I've seen black GT's getting around with silver stripes...and white ones. Both look great. Even red or yellow would look awesome.

What about my pursuit

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss

Re: Stripes...yes or no

For about the same money any good sign shop can make a set and fit em for you but you can do a bit of customising where you want and choose from a much wider range of colours and finishes. Even have custom graphic's put on to the stripes but thats just another option. Because youu just got to have the stripes

Re: Stripes...yes or no

If your asking that means really you want them.
Get them factory fitted,so then they are original and not aftermarket.
Stipes from the Factory can be taken of.But Factory stripes cannot be put on later,only aftermarket stripes can and as soemone else said they dont look the same.
Cheers Fox.
