New bonnet stripes

Is fitting new bonnet stripes easy enough, any obvious pitfalls to avoid?

Mine have a few nibble on the edges so I thought it might be nice to fit new ones. The car is a Silver Cooper, current stripes are black, any thoughts on other colours that might look good?

Cheers

Whatever colour you go for I’d recommend getting stripes that have the contrasting pinstripes on the edges as when they start to wear away at the edges, they still look fine from any normal distance

Good tip thanks - the current ones have white edging and that that's exactly where they're starting to go.
