    there's only one dude who I would trust with the stripe and that's Mark Allen - aka Skinner. I'm sure if you drove to the Midlands and wetted his beak, he'd duly oblige

    in case you're wondering Mark's credentials, he put the stripe on his Spider Strad

    wouldnt do it yourself James, tougher than it looks, I helped Mark put the one on his Spider. Well OK I watched him :D.

    If you are having your car Paintsheilded I would recommend Toms guys (he will probably lynch me for that LOL) but ensure that you take out the rear brake light (not as easy as you would think due to the heat sheild wrapped around it) so that the stripe tucks into the apeture fully. As Jules said Mark is the only other dude I would trust to do it.

    Quite surprised you are having it done TBH, but I think you are doing the right thing mate. Still looking forward to seeing your Strad one of the days James :)

    very difficult job if its not something you have done before (putting graphic's on a car) getting it perfectly aligned down the middle of the car is the art. also check your print is straight, you would be surprised what they can send you.
