    Hi everyone.. I have a 2008 black w/charcoal stripes GT500. Im thinking of changing the stripes. My question is anyone know of any companies that sell a vinyl stripe kit for our cobras? Also Im thinking of either the grabber blue (or similar) or a metallic Saphirre . Any ideas?? Seeing the 2010 with the Gb stipes is sooo hot.


    Thanks

    I'm in the same boat as you. I was wanting to see a 07-09 black with grabber blue stripes. I was thinking about getting blue masking tape and just taping over current stripes that way I can get a idea of what it's gonna look like.

    Will the 2010 stripes from Ford not fit because of the different hood?

    You can get the vinyl stripes directly from Ford yes. Happens all the time when replacing stripes because of accidents.

    Check your local sticker/Sign shops. Dunno the cost but it one way to go, especially custom colors. Our local shop does entire vehicle wraps.

    These guys DID have the complete stripe kits at GREAT prices -

    Emblems & Stripes - Cognology Motorsports

    Not sure if their website is undergoing maintenance or what, but this particular link is coming up empty at the moment. You might wanna check it later.

    coundln't find it :(

    now I think I may check out a local vinyl shop in my area. They did the stripes on my 2005 mustang GT. I wonder how close I can get to grabber Blue. Man I cant get over how nice a black 2008 will look with GB stripes..

    I have been looking into this, my dealer ordered my car with stripe delete. Sadly the complete set of 2011 PP stripes from ford is like $1700 from Tousley. I want stripes, but not paying that much for them. They come pre cut, not in rolls and you need to order each piece individually.

    Stripes will be available soon. MrFarmDog is on vacation and he will send us back the information upon his return. We are also pending licensing on the Side GT 500 stripes, so it will be over the top stripes first.

    I think I would buy the OEM stripes it came with in case somewhere down the road I wanted to go back. Just in case.
