After people's opinion, I like the stripes down the sides but I think the front isn't quite right. I've had a think and I've come up with two answers.

1: Remove the bonnet stripes

2: Stop the side stripes before they reach the front wing.

Any feedback is appreciated

I'm really not sure what I think of them. Maybe option 2 though?

You need them nearer to the headlight, not as short as you put them.
Will cut some more.

Thanks Bill, knew i'd mess it up LOL

Can you also do another door piece as i think i put the drivers one on a bit waffy and then the drivers wing was too high as well.

Oh well, more money Rolling Eyes

Thanks guys

Personally I would remove the bonnet stripes but wait and see when you have fitted the full length wing stripes as I originally supplied.

too much of a rush to get them on probably.
Never mind it was good practice for you.

I've just re-discovered a checked roof sticker that came with the car when I bought it. It's a standard black check, what would be the white bit is clear so if i put it on my car it'd be a green and black check. Does that make sense?

What do you think, put it on or would it be overkill?
