FINISHING TOUCHES! My Shelby GT500 is Complete with Iconic Stripes

My Shelby GT500 is ready with the stripes and finishing touches complete! The Grabber Lime paintwork has been protected using the brand new SunTek Reaction Paint Protection Film, and now it's time to add the iconic Shelby racing stripes using Altered Black PPF, plus a surprise twist.
Having brought my new Shmeemobile to First Class Autosports in Miami a few days ago, work has been swiftly progressing to install PPF ahead of the big Where's Shmee: US Edition tour. With all of my PPF'd cars at home having SunTek film installed, for the GT500 it's receiving the latest material and in fact one of the first cars in the world to get SunTek Reaction PPF. The new material mixes the traditional benefits of PPF from stone chips, swirl marks, self-healing and being easier to wash, with now also offering a top surface with ceramic coating like hydrophobic qualities.
SunTek Altered Black PPF is not a vinyl but a urethane material applied as per transparent PPF, that offers a paint-like finish and suits the job perfectly for either additional parts like the roof, mirrors or racing stripes, or even a full vehicle transformation. In this case, the result is akin to having ordered the $10,000 painted racing stripes!

  • It's done! What do you think of my choice for the pinstripes to really accentuate the SunTek Altered Black PPF? I can't wait for the miles ahead with the GT500.

  • @Shmee150 The car looks great!! Love that green it's the best. Palos mentioned you were dropping by Colorado Springs soon. I was wondering if you were swinging by Albuquerque, NM as well? Since it's only a few hours from Colorado Springs. If so let me know we can meet up and go by a Saturday morning Cars & Coffee. I have a 2014 C63 507 Edition. Then we can get some New Mexican food which is well known and tasty.👍 Keep up the great videos!! Take care buddy!!
