Stripes - CAN'T handle BLACK MATTE

Dealer just installed my stripes (which I thought were GLOSS from factory), and I can't stand them. So I paid $450 for these stripes that I'm removing :(. The installer did a perfect job on the install too. Now I have to re hire him to put on my new $300 Gloss stripes. Costly mistake on me.

You probably could have had them painted on $750.00, or close to that.

This is only one mans opinion friend, I'm sure many people love their Matte stripes. I just dont like the fact that I have this brand new shinny car, and the stipes are dull and flat.

IMHO, getting the stripes painted on is the only way to go.
As far as the description you have here. Be careful and read it a couple of times. First they say the product is made by 3M, then they say the product is made in-house when ordered? Kind of weird? Make sure you do some research first. GOOD LUCK!

I feel your pain on this one. This is the same as getting a ticket for doing something stupid that you could have avoided and having to spend a couple hundred and even more on insurance premiums.. Ultimately at least with this mistake, you forget about it and move on.. And all of you here wanting to kick a man when he's down, no need to do that as he feels bad enough and knows he screwed up..
