I hope they are NOT dealer applied. I would rather have them put on at the factory. Hopefully the fact that most of the show cars have them, this will ring true.RickB said:The brochure says "hood stripes (if you want them)", which would lead one to believe they will be dealer-applied, and you could probably get them un-applied, if you want. If/when I get the stripes, I'd like to get an extra set, for application later if the originals fade, chip, etc. I don't have a lot of confidence in stick-on stuff.
