|Roush Performance Introduces New Vinyl Stripes
The Ford Mustang is a platform that people love to customize, but many of the ways to accomplish that can get quite expensive and time-consuming. Roush Performance has now made available a variety of vinyl stripe options for 2005 to 2011 Mustangs that can quickly and inexpensively turn a "one of many" Mustang into a "one-of-a-kind" trick pony.
By mixing-and-matching among different top, side, hood and roof stripes, there are more than 500 different Roush configurations available. Customers are able to choose complete pre-designed sets or create their own by picking among the different color and style combinations.
"There have been more than nine million Mustangs sold since the introduction and it's getting harder and harder to find any two that look alike because so many owners take great pride in customizing their vehicle," said Jack Roush. "I think the Mustang is an amazing platform to work on, and adding vinyl stripes, such as those from Roush, are a quick and fairly inexpensive way to make a bold statement with your car."
Roush stripes will be available to fit either the 2005-2009 model years, or the 2010 and newer Mustangs which have the Ford power bulge in the hood. There are eight colors available, including Matte Black, White, Competition Gray, Dark Gray, Yellow, Red, Rally Blue and Sapphire Blue.
Anticipated retail pricing for a complete kit for a coupe (which includes a roof stripe) is $220; kits for the convertible (without the roof stripe) will run $150. Side stripes will retail between $70-90 and hood/side stripes will retail for $150-160 depending on the design.
The top stripe kits are available in a solid stripe, or double or triple stripe designs. Available soon will be a design where the stripe extends towards the sides and over the upper fenders of the Mustang. The side stripes feature a number of contemporary designs, some of which incorporate the Roush logo.
Like those used on the Roush Mustang builds, these vinyl components are cut from a high performance graphic film which offers superior resistance to ultraviolet rays and has strong adhesion qualities. All are designed and made in the United States in Roush's state-of-the-art graphic studios.
For those like to do it themselves, Roush offers an optional stripe installation kit which contains the vinyl application fluid and squeegees; these are the same tools Roush technicians use on the production floor (part number 401906, suggested retail $20.15)
