New Side Stripes



I fitted these yesterday and have to say they look miles better than the standard sport side stripes. I was getting sick of seeing an identical 500 driving around Shaw, so now at least mines a bit different! lol

Just need white mirror covers now...

Cheers, yeah I got them off ebay. I had to send the 1st lot of stripes back though due to the '500' logo being very rough around the edges, I sent the vinyl cutter a high-res version of the logo and they've come out 100% better.

Re: New Side Stripes

Hey Si Mouse is looking damn good!

I am so tempted to say I'll swap my white mirror covers for your red ones but I fear my other half will kill me love the stripe, I am peed off with my stripe as the edges by the doors are getting tatty already.

Re: New Side Stripes

Oh what a shame. I saw some red ones on Ebay a while ago and kick myself now wishing I'd bought them! If I spy any white ones I'll let you know.

Cheers, they were quite easy to install really, hardest part was lining them up perfectly.

Re: New Side Stripes

Am I right in thinking the side rubbing strips means stripes are out of the question ?

....or do they fit above ?

Good question, me personally, I think it would look really busy with both the stripes and the strips. Plus, I doubt you'd fit them below/above the strips without it look odd.
