- Mustang Le Mans Stripe Installation Guide
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out some of our AmericanMuscle Graphics Lemans stripes options available for all 2005 and up Mustangs. Lemans stripes originated on the race track back in the 50s and later Carol Shelby used them on his race cars as well. Eventually they found their way over to the production model 60s Mustangs, and of course the Shelby GT cars. These lemans stripes from AmericanMuscle Graphics are available in either an 8 or 12” width, and in your choice of either black, matte black, silver, white, red, or blue. All of our AmericanMuscle Graphics have been constructed from high quality premium cast vinyl, which will last for years without fading or peeling. Secondly, every one of our vinyl designs is test fitted on our own cars first, before being sent into production, ensuring a perfect fit on your ride every time. The install will take a little time so just be prepared, I will say that working with any vinyl can be a little tricky but we make it a little easier for you by breaking this kit down into three separate panels, and by including some very detailed instructions along with the kit. Before you get started, you will need some essential tools, of course we’ve got the soap and water mixture, a razor exacto knife, the included squeegee, some painters tape, and maybe a pin or a needing just to release any excess bubbles. This kit does require a lot of patience when it comes to the install, so that’s why we’re calling it 6 hours from start to finish, but don’t be upset if it takes you a full day. So while other cars might try and sport lemans stripes, I think there’s no denying they look best right here on a Mustang. So with that said, check out one of our many lemans stripes options right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Black on black matte finish lemans race stripes
Excellent material quality.Application was not difficult at all and again the material was really forgiving as far as getting it into place and the overall amount of time spent vs. The few application tools and spray which are very minimal The results are well worth it.Plus the looks upgrade is awsome.Helpful (3)

I bought silver stripes for my race red 2014 Mustang that had the ugly pony side stripes on it. It changed the whole appearance of the car. It looks great now.. I recommend that you find a professional to install them, there was no way that I would have been able to apply them correctly on my first attempt at doing this. I used a sign shop who did a great job, but there not cheap..$300....American Muscle seems to have the best choice of product and prices than others that I have used in the past..Helpful (4)

Good Product Need to take your time to do it right . Do not try this without professional help. Stripes are not that easy to install regardless of what the paper work says. Full stripe kits will require 8 hours of your time to do it right. Takes time but worth the effort.Helpful (3)

Had them for almost a year now and the vinyl's old
When I first got them they were amazing. bright color, deep blue shade, shiny. not even a year has past and they've gotten so old and grimy I can't get them clean anymore! they've got these brown spots all over the Vinyl and I can't clean them for the life of me. They don't come off with water and soap, clay bar, Vinyl cleaner, Windex or anything else... If I would have known they'd last less than 1 Year I would have reconsidered buying them.Helpful (4)

Got to love the stripes
Can wait to install these just waiting on nice warm day make sure use some soap and water in spray bottle to maneuver around squeegeeing nice slow getting all air out take your timeHelpful (4)
Bumper to Bumper? The pictures show that the stripes go from the bottom of the front bumper to the bottom of the rear bumper, but the description of the stripes only state HOOD, ROOF, and TRUNK (no front or rear bumper). Which one is it? Racing stripes on a Mustang only look good when they are full bumper to bumper.
There's enough material to cover bumper to bumper and then some. Hood stripe and trunk stripe is just referring to the starting points - so from the hood down and the trunk down. Sorry for the confusion. Hope this helps!
Is the color of the stripes similar to the red leather interior I have a satin silver 06 GT w/ black & red leather interior, I've had the windows tinted ( 35% on the doors, rear & qtr 5%). I'm trying to decide if I want to go with the red or a shade of grey as a ghost stripe. Any suggestions ??
The best color to compare our Red Vinyl Stripes to is the Race Red, paint code PQ, used on 2011+ Mustangs.
12" matte black racing stripes, care what is the best way to preserve the stripes? no wax? armorall? installing the stripes was one best mods i've done. These stripes was the missing component for my stang. I now have the attitude to go with the power!
Glad you are loving the stripes! There is just something about Matte Black stripes that make the Mustangs look so slick! You do not want to use any wax on them and don't power wash either. You'll want to wash them as you would the rest of the car. Gentle car washes are okay, but hand washing with soap and water is the best option using a soft sponge and towel.
Will these Stripes fit your aftermarket hoods? I am wondering specifically if I can fit these stripes across my 06 GT with the AM 3inch cowl hood? I saw you guys used them with this hood on your 07GT but I am wondering if you did anything special or if it will work fine as ordered. Thank you.
There is plenty of extra material so you should be fine installing these stripes with your cowl hood!
what color is the blue lemans stripe closest to.
This will have a close resemblance to the True Blue color offered by Ford.
Yes, the stripes will include enough slack to accommodate the aftermarket hood and chin spoiler.
Depending on the age of the vinyl stripes that are on the car, you may have to try a few techniques. You can soak the vinyl with an adhesive remover or isopropyl alcohol. This may be enough to help you start peeling them up and remove them easily. If not, you may need to resort to using a heat gun to heat up the vinyl. Last resort is an eraser wheel that attaches to your drill.
These are designed and cut in house, they are constructed of 4 Mil Wrapping Cast PVC Vinyl Material.
We would not be able to make a set of custom width stripes we do apologize.
You will need to remove your current vinyl stripes for proper installation of the Red Lemans Stripes.
The blue of these stripes will match the Shelby blue stripes and lettering that is on the 2008 GT500.
The measurements of the Silver Lemans Stripes - 12 in. (94-04 All) will be 102” long by 12” wide for the hood stripe, 74” long by 12” wide for the roof stripe, and 74” long by 12” wide for the trunk stripe.
The Silver Lemans Stripes - 8 in. (05-14 All) will not be a 3M brand. This will will be a American Muscle graphic being more of a solid color with the brand being oracle.
The stripes have no cuts. You get 3 sets of stripes and you need to measure length for hood and roof. You are on your own for complicated pieces like the cutout for the third brake light on the trunk. For me, the hood and roof went on perfect but I'm scared of the cutout on the trunk. Gonna have someone else do that. Getting lots of compliments on what I've got done so need to get it finished.
