These particular stripes were purchased from Graphic Express. There are other sources as well. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow. Some details are very specific and that is how these were applied. These decals are high quality 3M reflective. Each section of the stripe is a 3 piece decal with a hard backing on the adhesive side and a thin paper top layer covering the transfer. A solution of 1 teaspoon of Dawn Original dishwashing liquid and 1 gallon of water in a clean spray bottle was used to spray both the body panel and the stripe being applied. This method allows the transfer to be moved around a bit to get the stripes to line up with the adjacent transfer. The car should be indoors in a clean still environment. The body surface should be between 50 and 80 degrees for best performance. It goes without saying that all body panels need to be in the best possible alignment with each other and the body lines all line up where the stripes apply.
There are some important tips here to remember about the C stripe.
1. The bottom door stripe is the first stripe to be applied. Everything else aligns with that to give the overall effect.
2. The lower part of the stripe is supposed to end up with the lower body line of the fender and door being where the top of the big center stripe applies. The smaller top stripe is above the body line.
3. The stripe begins a very small curve upward beginning right behind the door. Although it may appear to be straight all the way to the rear, the stripe actually follows the body line to the very rear of the car.
4. The rear most stripe is precut on the end to apply at the point where the lower rear valence and the upper panels meet.
5. Except at the rear wheel opening and rear valence, the stripes should have at least about a 1/4 inch at each end of the panels to allow for folding around the edges and sticking to the inside of the panel. It would be a good idea to make sure those areas are clean as well.

Here are the steps used for the vehicle you see here. This describes one side and the other side is done the same way.
- Each body panel affected was cleaned with a soft clean rag and Isopropyl rubbing alcohol. This cleans any and all dirt, wax, adhesive, or any other substance from the panel paint. Graphic Express recommends cleaning each panel at least 10 times to ensure good transfer adhesion.
- NOTE: THE STRIPE ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR SHOULD BE THE FIRST STRIPE APPLIED. This stripe will determine how the rest of the entire decal kit will line up.
- Carefully measure the distance between the lower door edge and the rocker panel on each side. If the door edge slightly angles up or down, this needs to be determined before the stripes are applied.
- Take your lower door stripe and use masking tape to temporarily hold it in place. Keeping in mind the distance from the lower door edge to the rocker panel along the edge, position the stripe along the door bottom so that the top of the big center stripe is on the lower body line of the door. The reason the angle of the door edge is important is because you don't want the stripe to end up at some point along the door having the lower smaller stripe going below the door. If the lower thin stripe goes below the bottom door edge, then you will have to compensate for this by raising the stripe slightly and this will affect the way the rest of the stripe kit is applied.
- When you have the door bottom stripe held in place with masking tape, hold the C stripe section against the fender and make sure it lines up properly with the lower body line and the door stripe. The top edge of the upper small stripe of the C section should be straight with the upper body line of the fender and car. This is the second most important stripe because the rest of the upper part of the stripe is straight with the upper body line.
- When you have the bottom door stripe where you need it, take a pencil and make a small horizontal line in four places along the door where the bottom smaller stripe will run along the door. This is where you will align the stripe when you are actually applying it.
- Carefully remove the lower door stripe and lay it face up with the thin paper up flat on a long table or surface.
- Using the flat rubber squeegee that came with the kit, run the squeegee along the stripe from the center out to the ends to make sure the outer side of the stripe is well adhered to the thin paper layer. This helps to ensure it will remain on the thin paper when the the thick backing is removed.
- Get your spray bottle of solution and spray the door area where the stripe will apply.
- Now slowly begin to remove the thick backing from the stripe, revealing the sticky side of the tape. Do NOT touch the sticky side with your fingers if possible.
- Now spray the adhesive side of the tape with your solution. You have enough when you can easily run your finger along the sticky side without sticking to it.
- Now go to the lower door and gently apply the stripe to the door and align the bottom of the smaller stripe with the pencil marks you made earlier. Don't forget that you want some of the stripe to go past the door at the front and rear to allow you to fold the ends over into the inside of the door.
- You will see that you can move the stripe around a little to get the stripe lined up with your pencil marks. Just don't take a lot of time getting it where you want it. If the stripe begins to stop moving before you are ready, slowly pull the stripe up and respray with the solution. Be careful and don't let the stripe just fall away from the door and get any dirt on the adhesive side. Then try again.
- When the stripe is where you want it, gently use the squeegee to press the stripe against the panel. The best way is to start from the center of the stripe and move toward the ends in short strokes, slightly curving up and then down along the stripe to flatten it properly and keep air bubbles to a minimum.
- When you feel you have the stripe applied, squeegee again in the same manner 2 or 3 times with a little harder pressure and just try to make sure you have all of the solution and air squeegeed out.
- Now wait about 20 to 30 minutes to allow the stripe to dry a bit.
- After you have waited a while, spray the outer thin paper layer with your solution. This helps the paper to peel back from the stripe easier and better ensures the stripe will stick to the car and not the paper.
- Now pick an end and carefully remove the paper from the stripe. At the ends, you will have to coax the ends away from the paper and that's okay. Just get the paper to begin pulling away from the stripe and not wanting to pull the stripe from the door. As you pull the paper, pull it slowly and pull it almost completely back on itself. In other words, pull the paper so that you aren't pulling away from the door at an angle but almost flat against the stripe. Carefully watch and make sure the stripe doesn't want to pull up. If it does, you need to squeegee the stripe again to get it to stick better and then wait a minute or so. Then try it again.
- Once you have completely removed the thin transfer paper, blow on the ends of the stripe where it is past the door edges and exposing the adhesive. Then slowly fold the stripe tightly around the door edge and stick it to the inside of the door.
- Now that the lower door stripe is on, you can go next to the fender C section and follow the same procedure.
- The other sections go on the same way.
  For reference, these stripes were applied in the following order:
1. The bottom door stripe.
2. The fender C section.
3. The area in front of the rear wheel opening. Here you will see that the stripe ends slightly in front of the wheel opening.
4. The rear most stripe. Same situation here where the stripe ends slightly behind the wheel opening.
5. The upper door stripe.
6. The tip of the upper stripe behind the door.
  As mentioned earlier, the stripe slightly curves upward after the door. Just stay with the body line and you should be okay. Getting the alignment correct where the stripe applies on either side of the rear wheel opening is the hardest. When it is time to align the other stripes with the door stripe, it is helpful to get right up against the body and use your eyes to line up the stripe along the run. Optical illusion can fool you if you try to align the stripes by standing back from the car. Depending on the height where you glance at the car when it's done, you will see that sometimes the stripes look misaligned. Just move up or down and you will see that the alignment is correct. Each side of the car took approximately 4 hours to complete. Don't be in a hurry. Take your time and the end result will be well worth the time.
