Looking for a photo of a 73 convertible with side stripes. I ordered them form graphics designs in FL. I want to make sure I get the placement right.

 John, the placement will be the same for any 71-72 Mustang. I take it you're talking about the "Hockey Stripe" not the 73 version.

I think I have some detail pictures of placement if that's the case. Let me know.

Stock 1973 Mustang Convertible with a 351C 2v and C6
Modified 1970 Mach 1 M-Code with a 351C 4v Manual

My came from the factory with the decor package and the stripe options. These are the originals. When I applied them I worked from the ends to the door. Once I had both ends correctly positioned, I struck a straight line from end to end. Then applied the ends making sure they were level with the line. Then I applied the pieces in front and behind the door and then the door. The door stripe is the most difficult because it is long and tends to sag in the middle, but be care not to stretch it too much to eliminate the sag. Allow for some overhang on the ends to wrap the stripe around the door panel edges.

Make sure you use a good decal application solution. Wet the car and the stripe good before applying. It will enable you to move/adjust the stripe a bit for a minute or so after application.

'73 Mach 1 with checkered history. Working on repairing
what has to be done, replacing what I can to make a nice car and living with the rest. Being on the other side of the world presents challenges but we will get there.

PLEASE - no Mach 1 decals on a convertible.  Too many machverts out there now.

I went with the 73 stripes because I have the exterior side molding. I think it came out well. I now have to put the mustang badges back on.
