Stripes or no Stripes? Stripes Under Scoop or Around it?

Recommended Posts

I've got a white 2007 SGT with silver stripes and the stripes faded and cracked big time .  I removed the stripes (and scoop) and was going to just replace them with GT500 style stripes from American Muscle.  However, I have to repaint the hood due to the dissimilar metal corrosion from the hood pins.  That got me thinking about a stripe delete (except for the side stripe) configuration.

What are your thoughts on leaving the stripes off and painting the hood scoop white to match?  Or should I go ahead and put the stripes back on? 

If I do put the stripes back on, should I do them under the hood scoop too or have the shop cut the stripes around it?  I ask the last question because of the pain to get the scoop off again down the road if I needed to restripe again. 

I was wanting to go with the original Shelby American stripes, but they are very expensive.  Has anyone used American Muscle's?  Any other places?

Why would you pay, I suspect, a premium for a Shelby GT only to have it look like a simple GT, CA Special or bad clone? Go to any good auto graphics shop and they can cut the stripes for you. Go to the stripe thread where you will find all the information you need.

What Jeff said! But if it were me, and it once was, I would paint the stripes, especially if you plan on keeping the car. But definitely put the stripes back on. Whether you put the stripes around the scoop or not is your call, based on time and effort.

Okay, stripes it is.   Noticed American Muscle's stripes are wider than stock.  Anyone making the correct size?

This is what another member did with 10" matte stripes from AM, and painted the scoop (page 3-4 I think), for an additional choice.

Personally, I have a stripe delete black SGT, and like the look.

There are three different scoop types so it’s not one size fits-all removal.  Also, if you don’t paint, READ the stripes thread as even the best shops, without the proper tips and warnings, can screw the install up such as in the case of the hood.

I agree definitely keep stripes, to me they finish the car off, and I would paint for sure.  I’ve wanted to paint for many years, I’m just having a hard time trusting a shop to do it to my standards.
