Cool Got her striped not too long ago! [Pic Heavy, Before and After]

Hey all, Some before and after pics. Front bumper still needs some touching up/ replacing (the cut seems to be a bit off, no big deal).
Was done really nice within a day at a local signs up (Ontario, Canada) for a mere $350...
Comes w/ a 8 year warranty as well on peeling and fading. Was very happy when I saw it.

I'm curious to know what you guys think.
Feel free to post thoughts and opinions.

Thinking of getting the mirror wrapped as well, in the same red. Any thoughts opinions? If possible, can anyone Photoshop this in for me? It would be greatly appreciated.

BEFORE:




AFTER:

I like the stripes (I will almost always like Le mans stripes), but I did notice the following:

0) The stripes aren't straight at the very front edge of the hood, and you can see how the gap on the hood is narrower than on the top of the front bumper.

1) On the back, the gap on the bumper cover looks narrower than what is on the deck lid.

2) The gap looks wider at the bottom of the bumper cover than at the top.

3) The gap on the deck lid looks wider at the bottom than at the top.

4) The gap on the back of the roof is noticeably narrower.

I would look into enforcing that warranty.

I would also add standard thin-thick-thin rocker stripes (like the 60's-era Shelby's had). It gives the car the illusion of being both shorter in height and longer in length.

Personal opinion regarding the rear light covers - replace those covers with tint. The covers look - ummmm - foreign.

Those are some good eyes boy.

I like the look. You should match the horse emblem on the front of your car to red also.

i was going to say the same thing. that would drive me bat sh*t crazy. but for people who arent perfectionist, i love the color combo. overall nice job.

i think if i wanted something like that, i might just spring for the paint job. its gonna be a biatch to deal with that vinyl when it starts to come free on the edges or wear from the elements.
