"Porsche" side stripes

Hi I mind to add some "Porsche" stripes on my Arctic Silver Boxster S.

I look on Ebay and so and don't know if the products are really good quality.
Do you guy can tell me what did you stick on yours ?

Thank you

I used porschedecalshop.com from England... Good quality, good price, fast shipping, and the guy threw some freebee decals in the box for me

the vinyl was very thin and stuck to the backing of the white tape after spraying it. Some of that white backing left small pieces stuck to the vinyl and were on like cement. It was like it was old stock that had been sitting around for a while. I dont remember who the ebay seller was, but mine were a mess and could not be used. the KSI studio ones were more expensive, but very thick vinyl and the backing peeled off with no issues. It took me about 30 minutes per side to put the KSI studio ones on and they were perfect.

Black and white Box... really gorgeous !
Well to be honest I already bought stripe kit on Ebay at low price! I will see...
If it don't do the job I will order another ones from one of your recommendation!

I am impatient, clear markers, side stripes are coming !

As long as you take your time (and of course as I say the ones I had were crap but could be me just being a crappy installer), you should have no problems. be sure and get on youtube and watch all the videos to find what works best when installing. it really is very simple process though. Looking forward to seeing pics!

I would suggest getting the little Cayman R piece for the front bumper. Just make sure its pointing down a bit since the front bumper curves away. visual trickery.

Also from the UK guys. Best mod for the money by far. Plenty DIY videos on YouTube for Porsche decals.
