    I'm aware this question has probably been asked a million times but curious who is using what now? The popular choice in the past seemed to be "stuck on you graphics" but they dont seem to be in business any longer. Just need the bumper portion for my sterling gray 10 car. Thanks!

    I had a front bumper stripe issue and I opted for painted on stripes. Removed the bumper cover and stripes, used fine line tape to duplicate the factory layout, prepped the cover for paint, sprayed the stripes and cleared the front bumper cover.

    Visit the parts counter at your local Ford dealer and order a replacement.

    I know my car is older ('07), but factory stripes are becoming extremely hard to find. I bought the last two rear bumper sections in white that were left in the country. I hope you have better luck.

    This https://www.graphic-express.com/ is who I just used. I just replaced all the stripes/graphics on the whole car. The kit was complete and even includes stripes for the small area above the windshield. The quality and color was excellent and their products are Ford Licensed.

    Good tip there. I am looking to change the color of my stripes from flat black to something else.

    I'm going through this exact thing right now.

    The problem is replacing portions of the stripe is difficult because, from what I understand, even factory stripe kits can vary in color.

    I need a trunk stripe... that's all... just a trunk stripe and I'm probably going to have to replace all of the stripes on the car for it to match :/

    Partial replacement will be difficult to match up do to the dye lot and just natural aging/fade with the vinyl among other factors. One thing I did notice is the internet sites that actually make the graphics will send out samples. Also, I was originally just going to change the stripes on my front bumper and a local sign/graphics shop was able to match the color...not sure if you have checked with a local shop yet.

    Yep I've checked with the local shops, checked with Phoenix Graphix even checked with the original supplier of the OEM vinyl... no luck.
