My G5 is my first car bought in 2011 with ~23,000 miles on it. Since then I have upgraded the car and done a some little things myself. I enjoy doing my own work and plan on making more modifications myself so stick around, there's a lot coming!

Installed By: Self Installed
Installation Rating: 9/10
Comments: Easy to do, just had to cut the vinyl in 5" stripes and then figure out what angle you want them. Make sure you leave even spacing between the stripes if you do two and make sure you can easily replicate exactly where the stripe is one both sides. I found that measuring from the corner of the fender by the headlight and at the bottom corner of the fender right below the headlight worked best.
