Grabber Posted March 1, 2008 Report Share Posted March 1, 2008 Description: The 2 overlaps on my rear stripes are showing hairline cracks at the overlap. Problem: When the top stripe overlaps the bottom stripe, this causes a slight indentation at the bottom stripe location on the top stripe. The stripes have a coat of clear manufactured into the finish. That clear is showing a hairline crack on my car at both locations. The Ford Body shop manager has submitted a warranty claim to order the stripes. He said that he subcontracts the striping to a local stripe guy because of the difficulty in installing them. He said that they will try to only replace the 4 "top" stripes, but he is ordering the bottoms too, in case they don't match or come off clean. He is also ordering the SHELBY letters and faux gas cap emblem too. My front bumper stripes have a clear bra over them and appear to be holding up fine, but you should look closely at yours. The problem is very hard to see unless you look close. I am afraid it will only get worse. The pic's are very hard to see the problem, but it is there.
