Challenge: Apply custom racing stripes to a brand new exotic sports car to enhance the sports aesthetic of the vehicle, and meet the expectations of a customer that expects only the best quality designs.
Selecting a classic broad racing stripe of the past, with pinstripes on either side gave a modern, classy look. Following the natural body lines of the hood and roof line, we added a small twist to make the graphic flow seamlessly.
After a look at several samples of materials: silver variations, black gloss, matte and metallic finish options. The winner was a gloss black metallic 3M premium material (with a metal flake size practically identical to the flakes in the factory blue paint). Using art, skill, and specialty installation tape to protect the vehicle during the process, the stripes were adhered to the compound curve in the hood and roof. The entire installation process took nearly a full day to complete.
