- Mustang Le Mans Stripe Installation Guide
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at our AmericanMuscle graphics lemans stripes options, fitting all 99-04 Mustangs. These stripes originated on the race track back in the 1950’s, and Carol Shelby later used the stripes on his race cars, eventually making their way over to the production model 60’s Mustangs, and of course the Shelby GT cars. These lemans stripes options from AmericanMuscle graphics are available in both 8 and 12” widths, and in your choice of either black, blue, white, red, silver, and matte black. All AM graphics designs are cut from high quality premium cast vinyl that has been designed to last for years without fading or peeling. In addition, all of our designs have been test fitted on our very own cars first, before being sent into production, basically ensuring a perfect fit every time. As for the install, this 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 different sections, and by including some very detailed instructions which lay it all out for you clearly. It also helps to have the essentials with you – a spray bottle filled with soap and water mixture, the included squeegee, an exacto knife, some painters tape and a small pin just to release any bubbles that may get trapped. Again, this will take some patience, so that’s why we’re calling it 6 hours from start to finish, just to be safe. So while other cars may sport lemans stripes, I think there’s no denying they look best right here on a Mustang, so with that said be sure to check out some of our AmericanMuscle graphics lemans stripes, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

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 (0)

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 (1)

blue lemans stripes
paid 300.00 dollars to have them put on. well worth it. the blue is perfect for a white car.Helpful (3)
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.
