if i restripe it i was thinking of going carbon fiber strips, i saw a 2009 GT500 with them and they looked fantastic on it. Or ford racing blue but as it sits stripes will probable not go back on the car since ill be looking at trading it in the spring of 2012 for a gt500 with it most likely being between the years of 07 to 09, prefer an 09 if i can find a white, or white with blue stripes.

Probably best to leave them off if you are going to trade it. Save the stripes for the GT500.

They still look good. A few swirl marks and stuff just like what you would see on the paint. I have to try a little polish on them I just haven't had a chance yet.

They look a little better after today but there is still some light scuffs on them here and there. From what I've read a polisher and cutting compound can be used and they come out ok but I'm not that adventurous. Being that the stripes are white it is only visible under the right light. I'm fine with it. Might look a little better again when I get the last coat of wax on.
