- 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.

Disappointed in application and fit.
Did not fit well to the 2005 GT hood. The curves produce many wrinkles ( especially at the hood nose end ) and is now thrown away. Keep in mind it is NOT pre-cut for the third brake light nor the back plate. Would recommend have pro install as they may cover cost when it does or if it does wrinkle. Followed online and booklet instructions to the tee and bad results. Purchased many mods from AM but this one I would not try again.Helpful (0)

I have a convertable Grabber Blue Mustang and i only put it on the hood and frknt it looks amazing very easy to apply definitely better with 2 people. Very easy instructions to follow and after a few days it looks even better. When i first put it on it had a matte texture but after a few days it became nice and shiny and removed all of the small bubles i couldnt get.Helpful (4)

Stripes changed the look of my stang.
The Le Mans Stripes makes my stang look even meaner. They fit great on my 13 GT with Roush Package. I took it to the ground. I had it done by a pro and it took him 5 hours because he was meticulous.Helpful (8)

Love 'em! But mixed feelings.
I absolutely love the new look that these bright white lemans stripes give to my dark, Kona Blue convertible. The material is of high quality as well. I'd love to give them 5 stars, except for the following: Mine arrived in a really sturdy shipping tube, but the material (presumably as shipped) was beat up pretty badly, as if they came from the ragged ends of the master roll. I almost returned them, but decided to see if they would flatten out during installation. Except for one micro-crease that's almost impossible to find, the imperfections did come out fine, but it was a bit discouraging, The second issue is that while they went on the hood fairly easily (I was happy to find that the windex makes them VERY slippery and easy to move) I have not attempted the rear deck or the bumpers. I don't see how this material could possibly wrap around the angled bumper and maintain parallel edges. I'm afraid to even try. But the hood looks great! I may use the ample extra material (convertible doesn't have a roof) to stripe my Dodge Ram.Helpful (11)

they were kinda hard to put on, i messed up the top part and they came put slightly crooked XD, but you would only notice if you were to stare at them, but on the rode, the only thing that people see is an Eye Catching Mustang passing them! a must have for that sport and aggressive look on you mustang!Helpful (7)
It says it comes in 3 pre-cut sections. Im guessing those go for the hood, top, and top of the rear trunk. But but does it have enough to go down the front bumper and down the back bumper?
The 8 inch American Muscle Graphics Lemans Stripes will come with enough material to cover from the front to the rear bumper.
I have a 2019 gt mustang do most of these stripes have you going over the rear spoiler on the trunk cant seem to find many pictures of that online
The stripes will generally go over the spoiler. Please note that it can depend on the spoiler you have though.
Does it come with a sqeegee?
The 8 inch American Muscle Graphics White Lemans Stripes will not include a squeegee for installation. If you are in need of a squeegee for installation, we offer a vinyl installation kit which includes a preparation solvent, cutting tool, and squeegee.
Hello! I wish to stripe my scoop as well. Will there enogh vinyl to do this? I fear if I did this, there would not be enough vinyl to reach all the scoop while still making it flush with the car. If you look up the 2007 Shelby Mustang GT-H's, that is exactly the flushness I want. I worry there would not enough for the side and curve of the scoop. If I do take this to a body would they do this, or no? Im not sure if my question is clear if not please tell me. Paul Q
Hello Paul! The stripes should have enough material to cover a hood scoop, but the 2007 Shelby Mustang GT H did not come with a hood scoop. For clarification it may be best for you to give us a call at 1-844-494-7745. We'd be happy to discuss this with you.
i would like to know if i have a duck tail spoiler then would there be enough vinyl to put stripes on that too?
The White Lemans Stripes come with additional vinyl to make up for additions such as front splitters, valances, spoilers, etc. I have attached the vinyl dimensions below, in case you would like to compare the length of the vinyl and the length needed for your particular spoiler. Hood Stripe: 102” long by 8” wide Roof Stripe: 74” long by 8” wide Trunk Stripe: 74” long by 8” wide
We would not carry a stripe kit with out the roof section. However the roof, hood, and rear are all split up in sections when you get the kit. So you would not need to use the roof section if you have a convertible!
Hi, I suggest going to a local body shop to have these White Lemans Stripes installed
Yes you can remove them at any time and removal will not cause any damage to your paint.
The width is pre-cut, but the length is not. You will have to trim around the license plate, bumper lettering, hood scoops, and at the edges of surfaces such as your hood, roof, trunk deck, and bumpers. To make this easier, many will drop the stripes at the edge of the trunk deck leaving the bumper and license plate area unstriped. Personally, I think the little bit of extra effort makes all the difference in appearance though.
