Any vinyl shop can make you a custom design. Also there are a few stripe kits on eBay.

Did someone say stripes on a Mk3???



My dealer's "Master Striper" did mine. Not the best job in the world but I didn't pay for them, so... But like the guys already said, a good sign/decal shop can do it for you. TFB Designs can cut them up for you and ship out the vinyl or you can go by their shop.

When laying the stripe down, fined the center line on the car first.

Stripes with blacked out hood....

Stripes are painted, done myself...
Metallic Black and the stripes were done in GM Bahama Blue found on 90-95 Chevy Pickups.. it was as close as i could find to the shade of blue I was looking for..
