Hi there guys
Info to all I have a Black 07 the stripes on it are kaput they are so bad that they look like zebra stripes from the cracks. I took my car to a local body shop he said to remove them and paint them on $1,300.00. He said to remove them and leave it black is impossible because the adhesive is baked on now.
I have the stripe kit however, Ford Racing refused to change the stripes when they had just spots on them "my dealer sent photos" they came up with that acid rain story; my answer "Why is it that the paint has no damage?" No answer
I called Ford Racing the second time around and his answer was we denied you before and he siad it with an attitude "I'd like to meet him in person" the guy has not seen what they look like now but he will by friday.
Main reason I'm worried about getting them put on again is because I don't want to go through this all over again. The material they use is crap! Eventually, everybody "unless somebody never drives the car ever" is going to have to replace them at some point.
If all us got together we could get something done about this situation to include the hood scoop
$1300 sounds a little cheap to me for painted on stripes. I was quoted around $2300-$2500, which seems comparable to what other members have said. That price is with no edge and them taking off the bumpers, hood, trunk and all so the stripes wrap around the edges. Not just sprayed on in place, for a more professional look.
I have seen the work done at the shop that quoted me and they do high dollar cars (not Earl Scheib jobs), so you might want to see what all their quote entails.
I told the owner of the shop that as long as the stripes are under warranty, I'll keep getting them replaced. Afterwards, we'll see. $2,500 is a nice portion towards a supercharger...
