the "skunk" stripes are painted on.

On 65' cars the side stripes are painted, slightly wider and the "GT 350" is a sticker.

On 66' cars the side stripes are stickers.

The Shelby Le Mans stripes (across the top of the vehicle from nose to rear end) were a dealer installed option and painted on each vehicle from 65-67. Some owners have also had them painted on their 68s. The only Mustang that came with "stick on" stripes were the COBRA IIs built by Ford on the Mustang II during the mid-70s.

I found a company on the web at the following URL that makes stick on Shelby Le Mans stripes. http://search.netscape.com/ns/boomframe.jsp?query=shelby+stripes&page=1&offset=0&result_url=redir%3Fsrc%3Dwebsearch%26requestId%3D4d8a85b01d72b720%26clickedItemRank%3D5%26userQuery%3Dshelby%2Bstripes%26clickedItemURN%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.titchenal.com%252Fmustang%252Findex1.htm%26invocationType%3D-%26fromPage%3DNSCPTop%26amp%3BampTest%3D1&remove_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.titchenal.com%2Fmustang%2Findex1.htm They also have the dimensions for the stripes if you want to have them painted on. I'm a purist and the only way I'd put them on my car would be to use paint.

Good luck.
