Default Just Put New Stripes On My GT500! Rocker + Hash

I bought these from American Muscle. I think it turned out pretty sweet.

There is no "right spot". I liked them there.

well I can say this is the very first time I have ever seen them not on the fender above the center of the wheel and not continuing to the hood.

Re: Just Put Stripes On My GT500! Rocker + Hash
I thought about not putting the hash marks on, but they were only 16 bucks and figured I would take them off I didn't like them. Everybody always puts them in The middle of the fender and stops at the hood. I thought i would do something different to make it stand out a little more.

There is only one thing I don't like, they do not seem to match the color of your rocker stripe.

Uuhh, it's your car, but since you have posted pics of your car on an open forum, I can state my opinion. Please take them off, value of your car just dropped in MY book, but if it went up in YOUR book... That's all that matters

I kind of like it and I dont normally like hash stripes. Opinions help but it truly only matters what you think.

I agree with this. If you like it, then that's all that matters!

I'm a big fan of being original. You win some, and you lose some.

Next step:

Get that thing lowered!

This is definitely a different way to go about installing these hash marks. Although it's starting to grow on me. Especially since I've always liked Mustangs that are unique!

Bottom line, I'm glad you're happy with them. That's what is important!

Looks like Shane beat me to it!


This is really cool! I've never seen the Hash Marks installed at the location you choose. You're right, there's no "right spot" to put them! You definitely have the only Mustang with them located closer to the door and more so on the hood.

Keep up the awesome work with your build and let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future!

-Dan

It really does look better in person driving down the road. I had a buddy drive it and it looks really mean and sporty. I'll keep them on for a while.

Those hash mark stripes look rediculous, especially where you placed them. Then again, it's your car, enjoy.

Maybe throwing some thin red pin striping around yours would really give it a little more design and flow better with the car. To each there own brother and if you like it then rock it.

I'm going to put a black set on my car when I get home. I'm going to put them above the fender but only because I like the old school racer look.

well its your car, but lemme put in some constructive criticism:

the fender stripes look bad and out of place, id take em off.

for the rocker stripe, i have 2 issues: (1) the strips is kinda thin, i think the OEM GT500 sidestripe is thicker and more fits the size and shape of the car. (2) i dont like the color. it looks kinda like an off yellow... The following color stripes look good on black cars : Red, Off black, bright yellow, gold, silver, and bright white.

id go either gold, or bright white.

And trust me. im a doctor.
