I got the side stripes from 'Renndecals" as well. This is 3.5" in their medium gray. I installed them half inch up from door edge because I liked them a little lower when I was mocking it up.

that mistake is a lot more common than you think. Even pros do it from time to time. I'll add another pro tip. When you layout the stripe cut off the part that is going to go on the front fender and lay that separately after you've layed the rest of the stripe. If you try to do the whole stripe in one shot, when it hits the front fender its going to want to start going downhill because the fender juts outward which makes decal not parallel to the fender/rocker join line. Look at a lot of pictures of side stripe installs and you'll see what I mean. When it doesn't match that line its pretty obvious and looks a bit off. Separating the fender part makes it easier to follow that join line of fender/rocker because the transfer tape is not really flexible enough to pull it properly as one piece into position, if that makes sense. Good luck!

I bought the striped from factory. It make it super easy to install as they have a locator strip on the bottom to line up with the bottom of the door and it has the marks to line up with the gaps. So perfect placement and fitment every time.
Yes they cost a lot more, but I am super OCD about placement.



Factory bought - applied later

Reviving this thread, what is the final consensus on exact factory placement of the side stripes?

I have seen the Grey triple stripe on a blue car. It looked very nice.

Do you need to remove the factory stone guard film from the rear panels before applying the triple stripes?

I'm waiting for my stripes and I can be very, um, detail oriented. Your comment piqued my interest and now that I've watched all the install videos and looked at all the pictures, I can't unsee what you describe. But I did notice it looks like it "goes downhill" even on factory 911Rs and even in the post below yours on the thread! I guess I'll have to eyeball it and see if the install should follow the protip directions!

Sorry for the off topic, but that integrated rear spoiler looks different?.... or it an optical illusion?

My 2017 Endurance Racing Edition has a set of Weissach side stripes that are also available from Porsche, in Gray or Black.
There are also (I'm pretty sure they are copycat) sets of these offered on eBay for about $65, but i have not seen 'em up close.

Looks good, curious if anyone has done white decals on a white car? I know the sounds silly, but I'm thinking along the lines of "ghost flames" where you don't see it immediately unless you look closely.

Do you have an ebay link? I also have DBM. Those might also look good in grey.

I also saw the OEM Weissach ERE side stripes on eBay, but they were not cheap. $1350 is my recollection.
Porsche used the Gray side stripes on the Black ERE's, and the Black side stripes on the Red and White ERE's.
The top stripes faded from White to Gray to Black on the Red and Black ERE's, front to back, and faded from Gray to Black on the White cars.
Somebody was selling the complete ERE decal sets in eBay fit $250. But they certainly were not OEM stripes at that price. My guess is they are decent quality tho. There are some good graphic shops around the country that create and apply almost any stripe/graphic decals u want, including race cars. Most wrap shops are not good at precise decal placement tho. Stick with a shop that does race and sports car graphics.
