I think the adhesive on the wrap may have just added a bit of moisture to the stripes. I hope that in a day. that will go away and stripes will look fine. Keep us posted.

I think you are correct. The lines are still lighter this morning. I still have the wrap on the hood pulled back from the stripes and when looking from the side in the right light I can literally match the lines from the wrap to those in the hood.

Upon real close inspection I can see the lines are transferred from the wrap to the stripes. I wish I had taken a picture before I started working this as this lines were very white and distinct. By the time I took the pictures last night the definition was about 20% of what I had when I pulled the wrap back.

I'm going to pull the car out into the sun and see if they "dry" out.

Two thoughts:

1) The 40th stripes absorb moisture
2) Ignore the wrap box instruction "for best results apply wet" if you have 40th Anniverary Satin Silver Stripes.

Hopefully all is well now. I think your suggestion is a great one...only apply the product dry.

Also, as with any wrap type adhesive, it should not be left on for an extended period of time. I used this product extensively for open track days and then removed (3 - 4 days max). On my black GT500, silver Saleen and blue Mach 1 I have never had a problem like you experienced. Although I have traditionally applied the product dry, it has been rained on and no issues with paint or stripes.

It dryed out completely parked in the sun yesterday. I really freaked when I first saw the white lines and after an hour of trying to get rid of them I was convinced my stripes were trash.

I'm amazed the stripes are so porous.

Anyway, all is well. I agree that when it comes to the stripes a dry application is a must.

Roush,
Do you still have one more roll? If so I'll take it. If you're a member at AMP I may be local to you and might be able to pick up & pay in person or at AMP. I will be at the Mitty at Road Atlanta this weekend too - if you plan to attend I could meet there.
LMK - Tim.
