Beware of idiots
That's a lot of money for stripes. I'm going stripe delete with a black painted roof. I will do a full Xpel on the car and put aftermarket stripes over the Xpel. If the stripes ever get messed up, it's not a lot of $$ to fix.Hi Chuck,
This is your good friend Melange. I suggest that if you really want the Gurney flap to just go ahead and order it from your build with the factory. After market knock-offs in many cases won’t match up with the factory part. If your order the factory part later it will cost more. You will also need to find someone to install it for you if you get it later and then you are taking chances that they will do it right. Finally your build will reflect in your VIN number if you make alterations it may affect the collectibility of the car. Call me crazy but I am requesting the painted on stripes. I hate the water spots on the vinyl stripes on my GT350 and I can’t get them out. Anyway these aren’t cars we need but cars we want. If you want the Gurney flap don’t let $1500 stop you. Be happy my friend and remember. “Melange Still Races!”
I agree painted on stripes are THE way to go, but at a tune of 10K? If this was a limited production car, I would absolutely do it. It would add to the value and rarity. However, they will produce as many of these cars as people will buy. The s650 may be a while, and once initial demand fades, the ADMs will lessen or disappear.
I'm mot trying to change your mind or tell you how to spend your hard earned money. In the end, if it makes you happy, that's all that counts.
