Looks really good.  You can come and do mine for me. :D

 

I respect your car too much.  I hired a local installer to come do mine. They came to my house with soap and alchohol sprays, body magnets, alignment tape, heat gun and hypodermic needles.   Plus 20 plus years experience.   1 hour and $170 later I am happy.

Installing those is definitely an art.

You're correct about this being an art.  If that was a factory job, the stripe would be slightly off at each side of the door, and even the rear quarter panel stripe would be at a slight angle.  lol Car looks incredible though.

I must say, using an NOS stripe kit was a bonus.  I didn't realize the difference, but when Ford had the graphics made, they had each stripe sections backing paper cut precisely.  So there was exactly enough paper around the stripe to align with body lines for ease of install.

 

For instance, the front elbow stripe had the correct paper outline to have it align with the marker light housing for proper spacing height.  The backing paper also had precise cuts to align with the bodyline apex running down the side of the car.  Then that last stripe that is crooked on so many cars, was cut to lay across the rear marker light.  I wish the stripe reproducers would follow those cuts.

Yep I'm happy!

I did my own last summer. It took me about 4 hours. Many many tries at taping lines, getting the decal lined up centered etc etc.

My neighbor came over and harassed me about why it was taking so long. It was all in fun but wow it's a lot tougher than it looks for a first-timer. Once I got to the other side it was much easier because I had a system. I even tried using a laser level but because the car doesn't sit level that didn't work. Plus on a red car a red laser is pretty tough to see.
