This Mustang is in the shop to get the roof stripes painted on. For some reason, the roof stripes were not painted like the hood and trunk stripes, they are vinyl decals. Over the years vinyl breaks down from the suns UV rays. The owner bought the car like this but first thing on the list was to correct the roof. The front chin spoiler had also had some road rash scars that he wanted to fix as well. He came to the right place. We started by removing the old stripes. A heat gun, finger nails and time. We had to heat up the vinyl, pick at it to get a piece to it started and do our best to peel it up in pieces as big as possible. It took some time but we did get it. Next step was to mask it all up and paint them on. Once they were painted, we unmasked the stripes then laid down 2 coats of clear. Monday we will put it back together and get it back to its owner.
