The stripes are vinyl (color is a metal flake pewter). It took the guy who installed it one day. I had it done at a graphics shop called The Stripe Shop. They charged me a little over $300 and it is a complete wrap from front to back. I would just pull up the yellow pages and do a search for automotive customizing or automotive accessories and look in your local area.
My wife loves her car. The only thing that it doesn't have that she wanted was the soundgate. It has the 2.0, auto, sunroof, drivers gauge package (convenience group I think it is). We had the windows tinted, which made a huge difference. Then the stripes done. Next on the list is seatcovers by Wet Okole (waterproof neoprene). Then possibly a new grille, if anyone happens to know a good place to look for a grille I would appreciate the info.
