It'll take some careful measuring, but you'll get it.
Yea I know the front just doesn't look right to me without the bumpers being done... Might try to do it later on today if the weather holds up... My only worry is if I mess up what material I have left I will either have to leave it as is or order another kit

No I had it done at an autoshop. Problem is that couldnt get the exact vinyl stripe, so they (German autoshop) had to do the best they could which was pretty good. Took the guy like 30 minutes.

Tanner05, you are the whole reason I decided on the blue stripes. You helped me out in the chop shop section a few weeks ago and put blue stripes on my car. I also had the black pinstripes removed that were on the car.Thanks again for your help, I overall like the way it has turned out, just want to finish it.

Good I'm glad I could help you out.
Its kind of cool to do a chop then actually see the parts on the car.

My bad, I meant to say 30 minutes just to get the front bumper stripe on. The car came with stripes already when purchased
