Ahh, but that's the beauty of a hand stripe.Too many are looking for the perfection, it doesn't happen that often with a hand laid job. And I would prefer to have that imperfect job than one done on a computer and stuck to a spot. Width of a line, straightness, uniformity all needs to be right, but look for the traces of a human...know what I mean? I had my coupe striped, it's far from perfect but I can live with it.
