I Got the car back this week from the paint shop and was wondering if one should wait a bit for the paint to "cure" before adding the Boss side stripes? Or its fine as is...... Paint was finished on Wed.

What color stripes will go back on? White really looks outstanding. But that's my own thoughts. They also say it will add about 23hp. ;)

Hmm, One side black, and the other white..... Kinda a Dr.Jykle and Mr. Hyde thing? I think I will keep in touch with my darker side......

Being right in the heart of Nascar Country I would just suggest asking around to see who does quality automotive vinyl. Would bet you will have no trouble finding someone to replicate your stripes as a very reasonable cost. The price Ford wants is so silly, you could get someone to paint the entire scheme on your car for that price.

Ahh, so you’re familiar with this place!

Yeah, I’ve got a few contacts from work that I plan on reaching out to handle it. I always try to go OEM initially, but yes; this is definetly a job for TDS, Russo’s, or Designer Ink Graphics.

I’ll give an update if I have any luck!

Good luck , but sure you will be successful as I know we have repaired some vehicles with a couple of our local graphic artisans and you can not tell from stock.
