    FWIW, I put Phoenix stripes on my 69 Barracuda, and they fit beautifully. Cuda61.JPG

      I overlayed and blew up the two cars stripes for comparison.
      The blue car "correct" stripe is overlayed on the brown car "incorrect" stripe.
      Please note that I am not in any way claiming what is right, but only did this to point out the major difference between the two.

        Absolutely. I also bought the application gel, and it was WELL worth the extra money.

          Could they look different due to incorrect installation, ie stretched, bunched up?

          Here is another comparison with some reference lines. Aspect is a little off so the graphic slopes up on the brown car but the length is off.

          I think these are directly applied off a backer so they cannot be stretched unless the backer is, and its a waxed paper, so not likely.

            Thanks. There really is no comparison or question. They are not the same.

              Is it me or does the brown car have them on up side down?
              Sure looks that way.

              I would call them directly, with invoice in hand and get permission to return if they arent correct after opening.

              Im not versed at all in the decal end of these cars, im just expressing an opinion from a parts guy standpoint.

              No. Look at the curve against the light itself.

              I don't think so. I don't like it either. It's a totally different look than original.

              Great comparison! For someone wanting original stripes, these ain't it.
