Matte Black Rocker Stripes w/ Mustang Lettering (05-14 All)
I did not follow the instructions in the box. I first used an ammonia free glass cleaner to insure that the area that I was going to place the stripe was clean of dirt, dust and road grease. Then I used a piece of 3/4" wide blue painters tape and aligned it with the crease on the door from wheel well to wheel well. I started on the drivers side and aligned the M in Mustang 1-1/4" from the door edge and tapped it so it would stick then went to the rear wheel well sighting it along the blue painters tape. I gave it a stretch. Went forward, and stretched the stripe to the front wheel well, eyeballed it, then used the squeegie up and down, not back and forth to remove any air pockets, which were not many, but this also insured that I got a tight and flat adhesion on the edges. I used a fresh razor blade and cut the stripe using the door edge as a guide front and rear, then used the squeegie to fold the 1/4" extra into the door well. Then did the same at the wheel wells. Pulled the painters tape loose and used a micro fiber towel to wipe the stripe down. No waiting for the soap to dry and no sitting in the sun to evaporate the bubbles. Did the same to the passenger side and I was ready to roll. I have washed the car twice since I put the stripes on last week and no signs of them coming loose.
Yes, I would recommend this product. If you are unsure of your ability, get a friend to hold one end of the stripe while you pull. Just do not stick the stripe until you get to the rear wheel well and you will be ok.
