I am looking at buying some stripes and found their website. Has anyone here bought stripes from them and if so, are you happy with them?

Thanks

Thanks for all the replies. I am thinking about the black and silver stripes for my car. I think it looks good on the Crystal Red metallic.

The more I look at the stripes the more I like the racing stripes. They look great on the blue, but I just don't know what color for Crystal Red. I am thinking maybe a silver or gold, any thoughts?

Mike now makes racing stripes II. Follow the flair on the hood and are wider on top and back. I added pinstripes to finish it off.
Also brought stripes all the way down the back. Mike did the install for me and made 3 or 4 trips over to make sure everything was perfect.

really get LOTS of compliments!






I think black would look great, just like the Will C. 427.

More props for Mike...excellent quality decals, not to mention excellent application instructions/techniques/tips as well. I had never applied vinyl, but found his instructions very well written and easy to follow!

with everyone, Mike was amazing to deal with and seemed to 'know'' exactly what I was talking about even when I wasn't sure myself....

One word of advice, do not install them on a windy day outside ask me how I know..

It takes quite a bit of patience and time to install them right; in the end you'll be very happy with the quality and look of your 'new' vette.

The gray on silver looks great! I have to figure a good combo for my car, Crystal Red with gold, silver or maybe black. I don't think white would look right for me, but white looks great on blue. I do like racing stripes 2 with the flared look, that is my choice as of right now.

Mike has plenty of options to choose from. I bought from him about a year ago.

What color is you interior? I would color match. That way you don't have 3 different colors on the car.

I would go with Black, Silver, or maybe a lighter or darker Red.

Mike can definitely set you up with what others have that has worked for them. Ask him for pictures, he may have some Crystal Reds that haven't made it to the website.
