Default Hash marks

Who makes the best fitting hash marks? I've really wanted to try this for a while and tried a set from a vendor, they weren't even close to fitting. I tossed them because I didn't want to have to cut them to get them to fit and I wasn't sure it was even possible. Does anyone sell a good fitting set?

You could also use plasti dip. Not hard and peels right off. Just another option.

Yes, I have used this company as have countless others on this site. I bought the RF style kit that has a second color border. In fact pics of mine are on the site...metallic blue with gunmetal border. They are pre-measured and cut when you receive them. Just peel and apply. Instructions were included along with measurements to get placement and spacing correct.

I make my own. I prefer the c6 style GS with whatever variation interests me at the time. The key to a good fit along the crease along the wheel well is knifeless tape, for me it's the best way to get the contour correct. If you are tucking under the fender then that is moot.
Vettestripes has the biggest following and I understand he is very accommodating for special requests.


It's a colorshift vinyl, dark stripe is metallic.

Yes I do have a pic with the measurements I used when I installed the hashmarks on my '00. I can post up a pic later.

I had a local shop make my hashmarks from some commercial grade vinyl in the width I wanted and they installed them for me. The shop was Auto Trim Design and I know they have locations in other cities.



Vettestripes.com does sell quality stripe kits - I had a set of hashmarks from them at one time.
