What's the installation process like, and how many mil thickness? I would also need enough to extend over the decklid/spoiler and rear bumper. Cost?


Hi Paul,

I think for a track car it makes more sense to go with vinyl vs. paintwork. The obvious reason is if you have a shunt (God forbid) you can peel off the old vinyl and put a new set on a lot easier than paint. The other thing about the high quality vinyl is the finished product looks like paintwork. I just finished a GT3 with Martini stripes and they look painted on. See attached photo. Cost will depend upon how elaborate you want to get with the striping and decals. It shouldn't be difficult to find a good install guy in your area. There are several options regarding the various Gulf liveries. I am pretty much a perfectionist when it comes to replicating historic liveries. Feel free to e-mail me at
Thanks, Dan
