    I've got a customer looking for gold stripes for the Mustang he's got coming. They're not available in gold from the factory. Nor from Rousch. The only gold stripes I've been able to find are for the '06 Hertz edition, which won't fit this car. I've had enough experience with these stripes on Mustangs to know I'm not gonna let him order a generic kit. Anybody have a template for this car, or have a reputable source for the stripes?

    Try Shelby American, I think they put on the striped in their Vegas facility.

    Gold isn't available from the factory. The customer tried to order it that way. He had to order it with no stripes at all, and then the dealer (who I do a lot of work for, including installing Rousch stripes) sent him to me.

    Unfortunately probably going to have to spend COUNTLESS hours making CORRECT templates.

    Hopefully they are not like 95% of the stripes I have seen lately. Even from the factory they are bad.

    Use Wrap Cut Tape. Lay your stripes out with tape, install vinyl over the top, trim it with the cut tape.

    Order a set of stripes from this dealer. Put them through a scanner. Trace. Cut. Apply.
