I tried putting vinyl stripes on my spoiler today. It looks OK from a distance, but up close you can see how bad the curves made the vinyl wrinkle, especially on the bottom surface.

FWIW, not all vinyl is as easy to lay over curves and bends (or bumps). If you decide to redo it, maybe the manufacturer has a grade in the same color that is easier to work with. If not, there are YouTube videos showing how to use heat to lay vinyl over those types of surfaces.

I've got enough leftover vinyl that I can experiment with different techniques. Today I did a dry application, so I can still try wet application as well as heat.

Any pictures or what is the general consensus on running stripes with the painted black roof? Does that look disjointed because the stripe is only on the front end/hood and then again on the trunk?

We have installed stripes on cars with black roof, did some with the stripes on the black roof.

Was just on your website actually, haha! This picture really helps me get an idea of what I might be looking to do. Sounds cheesy, but I'd like my car to be inspired by and give homage to the Eleanor mustang someday. Thank you!

Leaving stripes off the black roof always looks okay. Putting the stripes on a black roof, does not look as good but some color stripes may work better than others.
