I decided on these stripes a few months ago but held out for the ol' christmas gift. So today my friend (who does commercial signs/wraps/etc.. for a living) applied the stripes for me, and they lasted about 10 minutes before we yanked them off.
This first photo is what I was expecting. Notice the spacing between the strips, and the nice, precision-cut rounded ends?
now, this is my friend applying the stripes -- the first thing I notice is that the ends are just blunt-cut, and the curved ends that butt-up to the Fiat logo look as if they were cut with a pair of school scissors. Also the spacing between the stripes is completely wrong.
so this is what I ended up with today, and I quite like it. Just the logo, which was cut very nicely. My friend said he'd make me some new, quality stripes at his shop. ..or who knows? I might just leave the little Fiat logos for a while since everybody has stripes already.
