Yes I agree, my maroon car (post 28 I think) has a strip kit that was original.  Bought in 79 the yellow tint actually matched the white soft top much closer.

Years ago I bought one and they ran the material in the wrong direction.  It stretches one way more than the other so HEADS UP TO THAT

Hahah you know that was not staged but does make a great conversation.  We had just had a party at the paint shop with a live band and went through 10 Kegs.  I'll never forget because we called the cops on our self to break up the event.  It blew up on us and the beer was gone in 2 hours.  I kid you not.

I just ordered the stripe kit YAY....

Thank you all for jumping in on my question for a white stripe kit.  I was asked when I bought my car and it was in 1977 at 18 years old.  My first car was a 65 mustang (hooked) and there was a guy who said "Keep my cars running" and ill let you borrow them when you want....  Seriously he had 2 1970 GT500's a hard top and a convertible.  By buddy and I did just that, while still in High School we drove these care to school and played hooky in the fast lane. By the time we got to a ripe age of 19 the owner said these cars are for sale.  DONE! in 1979 I painted the car.  Its still nice but why not make it "wet" looking again ;)

As roommates renting this house you can see both of them parked in their stall..Circa 1978 lol I added a photo of Carroll sitting my car 1981, prior to it being popular Carroll asked me "can I sign you car?" While leaning over the car to sign the air cleaner he broke the fiberglass fan shroud. He looked at me and said "you know how to fix that right?" well worth fixing just for the story and all the photos of that day.

Ill pick up the new stripe kit, I agree a tad whiter will still pop on a Royal Maroon car

Any advice on where to buy a white stripe kit for a 70 GT500?  I'm hoping to find a reflective type perhaps 3M original material???  Last time I bought one for my car was in 1978 and I thought its time to repaint the ole gal... One more time ;)

Thank you
