    rider graphics....AAr side strobe...choice B or C?

    they say C is closest to the original, but im thinking B may be better since the new models are much larger...im worried going with the 1970 C version may look too small on a larger body 2015

    anyone have any experience on which to choose?

    can anyone find photo's or each installed on a 2008-2015?

    Nothing to say about Rider.. but IMO, that car does not need a stripe..

    My last SRT had Rider Graphix and the quality was awesome. They were on the car for 5 years and still looked great, you can't go wrong with them. Enjoy!

    Here's the Rider Graphix "C" Strobe Stripe on my 2008 SRT. It has held up well and I plan to add it to my Hellcat in the spring. I have emailed several times with Brian at Rider Graphix and they have a wrap for the hellcat hood as well. I am waiting until spring to see what the factory comes up with as far as Black satin Hood paint issue resolution and will decide either to have my hood painted satin Black using the same process, buy a pre-painted factory hood if that becomes an option (YO! SRT!! HERES AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE MONEY. YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT THE DEMAND FOR PAINTED HOODS IS!!!) or have the hood wrapped.

    You decide:

    i believe he is now offering kits for blacking out the hood....after seeing it in person in sublime i think it would diminish the extreme look by painting / wrapping it black...ill be leaving mine green....the hood has sooo much going on...its a shame to hide it

    i chose c...the one that matches that yellow srt

    is it something you could do yourself? anyone recommend trying it yourself? tips?

    or is it worth a few hundred for a body shop?

    i have all winter and its sitting in a heated garage...id love to try it myself

    tips?

    I considered trying it myself on my 2008 SRT. After seeing the various groups of striping that needed to be lined up properly to look good, it was obvious that it is not a job for an amateur. I contacted several body shops who referred me to their "experts" and they passed as well. In the end, I took a chance on FASTSIGNS and they did an outstanding job for less than $150 (in 2008). I would strongly advise getting professional help on this one. I think that there are many more "experts" in the field now given the popularity of "wrapping" vehicles with various graphic designs. Shop around and check their portfolios!

    Ive done plenty of stripes and, yes, with the correct amount of patience, a beginner could absolutely do these... Measure, align, etc 3+ times.. And when you think you have it aligned correctly, measure and align again... Read up on stripe application. Do your homework... But for $150, even I would just farm it out. One wrinkle, misalignment, etc and the job is ruined and you are sick...

    When it is in the shop for the bumper cover, see if they will cut you a deal on applying it...

    when you wax around the strobe do you take blue painters tape and tape out all those lines?

    I have always just carefully waxed around the stripes. With time and patience, it's never been an issue. If you happen to "color outside the lines"'as long as you wipe it off immediately, it does not cause any change in the matte finish.
