If you really feel it's too expensive, I would suggest you don't have it done. Especially to a brand-new 35K automobile. Of course, you could always get out your masking tape and Krylon rattle-can and do it yourself....what do I care?
Okay then......

I want that. If i had the money, custom painted stripes would be the way to go.

I don't have even a remote clue as to how long it would take start to finish, but if it took 10 hours, that works out to $200/hr for labor. We're not talking a custom flame job here.

I was hoping closer to $1,000 for the stripes like the factory, well maybe over the spoiler too. I guess I just don't know crap about painting.
Dude, there's not a region in the USA that has a 20.00 hr labor rate ,you guys need to get a clue. The body rates are prob. still half of what you mech. rates are these day!!

Well for anything over $1000 you can put on 2 sets of stock stripes. When the 1st rock chip hits that big flat hood I will replace the impacted area and not have to repaint the entire hood. Paint is great for a trailer queen but I am putting a lot of driving miles on mine.

Thanks. You explained my point exactly assuming you meant to put $200 instead of $20/hr.

I was just saying that the price seemed way too high considering there's not a whole lot of materials in painting. Just keep in my mind my last sentence too.

My old man's been a body man for ~30 years.... my price for custom stripes = a case of beer

not including materials of course...

Stripes look great by the way. Anyone ever notice that the rear stripes are painted wider (spaced apart) on the 69's than the front?
