- Mustang Le Mans Stripe Installation Guide
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a closer look at our AmericanMuscle graphics super snake style vinyl kit fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. There’s no denying that the Shelby GT500 super snakes were the baddest of the bad as far as production Mustangs go. Even though they’ve undergone changes over the years, one thing has remained the same, those telltale stripes down the middle. Our AmericanMuscle graphics packaged is inspired from the later generation super snakes, and are available in your choice of either white, black, matte black, or silver. Of course, all of our AmericanMuscle graphics are constructed using only the highest quality premium cast vinyl, which will last for several years on your ride without fading or peeling. Since we test fit on our fleet of cars first, you can expect a perfect fit on your ride. Before getting started with the install, you’ll want to make sure you have a spray bottle filled with a soap and water mixture, the included squeegee, and a razor or exacto-knife. Whenever you tackle a large vinyl project such as this, it’s going to take a little bit of time, so if you follow the detailed instructions, and exercise a good amount of patience, you should be wrapped up in about 6 hours. So if you’re looking to add a little bit of that Shelby super snake flare to your Mustang, then be sure to check out a set of our AmericanMuscle graphics vinyl today.

I had a graphics shop install these stripes. They are a chore to install, because they don't release trapped air.Helpful (7)

What a difference
Before having the stripes put on my mustang I could tell it needed something to make it stand out. Once the stripes were applied,WOW, what a difference in the appearance of the mustang. All my friends have talked about the change and I am completely satisfied with my change in my mustang.Helpful (9)

Super Snake Stripe Kit
The product is an outstanding product made by 3M, I had a professional install and they prefer this product, easy to work with and form around the curves of your car. I do suggest taking it to someone who knows what they are doing.Helpful (8)

The stripe when on pretty easy. 1.) Be sure to wash and dry along with air dry with air hose. This gets everything off. 2.) Measure each side inward about every 6 inches this way it is easy to keep the stripe straight. 3.) Use a damp cloth for the final touch ups. 4.) Get it out in the full sun and don't drive for the day.Helpful (7)

Was wrinkled from shipping, tried to use heat to relieve them and it was ruined. had a custom job done by a local shop, beware when applying it yourself. plenty of material included and i'm sure would have been great had my product been up to par.Helpful (6)

Super Snake stripe kit
They were very easy to install as long as you put enough soap and water on the car. Do it early before the sun is beating down on the car our in the shade somewhere. The hardest part was to get the stripe to form around the bumpers. You WILL need a HEAT GUN don't do it without one a hair dryer won't do a good job.Helpful (8)

Protecting the stripes. My mom has white vinyl stripes on her 2010. Ford, where she had them installed, told her to use wax to protect and buff out rain spots. I recently bought and applied these super snake stripes. Your install guide says NOT to use wax. I'm unsure if it's because we have two different types of vinyl ( hers seem to be thicker). But, is there anything I can use to protect my stripes from the weather? And they look stunning! Thanks American Muscle for a high quality, beautiful product!
I had custom stripes made for my mustang, and my guy said NEVER wax vinyl stripes. They will eventually dry out and crack. (look at stripes from some of the 70's cars when the stripes were all cracked ect...waxing does this. I use a vinyl/leather cleaner and conditioner (Maquires) that keeps them looking new.
Does this kit come down all the way to the bottom bumper back and front?
This kit gives you more than enough slack, so-to-speak, in order to achieve having the stripes reach from bumper to bumper. We have extra added in order to accommodate for body mods like hood scoops and spoilers.
for the people who had the shop install how much did it cost you to have them installed?
I had mine put on at the shop and they only charged me $150. It only took them a few hours and they did an excellent job.
I have a convertible gt cs will it fit?
This will fit all 05-14 models, although the vinyl will have to be cut for convertible models as it cannot be applied to the top.
Hi, was wondering if y'all offer the stripes for the side of the car with the gt500 super snake logo cut into them
We unfortunately do not carry stripes like that at this time.
The American Muscle Graphics Black Super Snake Style Stripe Kit is a generic gloss black, since it is a vinyl, it will not be an exact match for any of the OEM black paints, however it will be closest to UA Black.
If cared for properly, the Black Super Snake Style Stripe Kit can last well over 5 years. The Sun will begin to fade the stripes and the weather will also put a toll on them, however, if you use UV vinyl protector they should last quite a bit of time. It would be difficult to say exactly how long they will last, as it will depend on the weather conditions were you live and if the stripes.
HI, For this Black Super Snake Style Stripe Kit you will need to leave the strip on for several hours, depending on climate before cleaning car. Use a quick detailer in a spray bottle for the initial cleaning then hand wash car waiting at least several days for the first time after drying. Do not power wash vinyl or wax vinyl, After a week or so you can take your Mustang through automatic soft cloth car wash.
