Race stripes made easy

I'll keep this idea short and simple. I was thinking about race stripes for my truck when in dawned on me....go to dealership and buy GT 500 stripe kit. lol

I dont know how much it costs...I may look into it this saturday and I'll let you guys know. But yea, if you want stripes, that would be a good way to go. They are vinyl and come in alot of different colors.

^^^If that's the case, then it would be cheaper to take it to someone and get it done....

Just go to a sign manufactur and buy a solid strip and cut your own... or they will even make your stripes for you for a lot less. Talk to someone with a local race car they know where the good deals are since they have to replace theres all the time.
