- Mustang Le Mans Stripe Installation Guide
Open Box from $79.79
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

Beautiful but a pain in the rear
So let me start this by saying once you have the stripes on, they look absolutely AWESOME. They look just like paint. Now the Tricky.. DO NOT underestimate the time it will take to put these on. Take your time. If you can even have a professional put them on. I did. It took it 8 hours but that's because of the stripes sent to me Now the not so good... I was sent old stripes that would not stick to anything you put them on without a battle. They would come up every time you tried to peel the paper off. I watched the guy do it and had to help him. I also was sent with stripes that had rips and bubbles in them before I even opened the strip. I didn't get to do all of the car I wanted. Now the redemption.. As you imagine I was very upset. I gave American muscle a call and after about 10 minutes on the phone with a representative they helped me out and I am going to be able to finish my car at not extra cost to product. This is what I call customer service. Mistakes can happen with everyone and everything and when that happens custome service comes into the picture and American muscle gets a 100 on that! I highly recommend these stripes when you have patience because they look amazingHelpful (9)

Results Look Great
It takes a lot of work to get the stripes to fit around the curves of my 2004 mustang gt. Though after all that work you get a beautiful outcome. When installing this it's a best idea to have someone help out whether it would be with spraying the liquid or helping to make sure it's aligned properly. If you take your time the outcome will look fantastic.Helpful (7)

Worth the long install.
To make sure the stripes are applied properly, take the full day, do it right. Approximated install time is 6 hours, but it takes a lot longer than that to perfectly measure the middle, reduce air bubbles, and align the stripes. Hardest areas were the bumpers, so be sure to use two different pieces, rather than one, and give it the attention it deserves. Having a buddy assist you is almost required, and greatly reduces workload. Great alternative to paint and gives the car an awesome new look.Helpful (7)

Great look for a mustang
When i got my mustang I knew I wanted my stripes on it, so I bought these and since I work at a tech school the collision/auto body shop was able to install them for me with no problem.Helpful (8)

Totally worth it
Definatly worth shelling out the forty bucks for these babies. Were definatly a pain in the a$$ to install but well worth it in the end. I can't stress enough how you should take your time and if you get frustrated just take a break and come back, else you'll have a ton of air bubbles.Helpful (8)

18 month update
Just wanted to share an update on the stripes. They still look as good as the day I got them on; they've never peeled or cracked in any spots. Just make sure not to wax the stripes themselves, and other than that they should be good for a long time.Helpful (7)

white racing stripes
These stripes are sick and defiantly worth the money. They just took me about 5 hours to install. Take your time and they turn out beautiful!Helpful (7)
Do you sell this stripe kit for a 2003 GT convertible?
Unfortunately, we do not make a kit like this for the convertible model. You are able to use this kit with the convertible, you would not utilize the roof section of the kit when installing the stripes.
Lemans Stripes Removal Can these stripes be removed easily?
Absolutly not. There is NO good method for removing these things in any reasonable capacity.
