Has anyone done the gill pinstiping (like GTI) with the 2m material on ebay on a blue forte? I have looked around and have not found any BLUE forte's with it. Also on ebay there is red and blue, so i was just seeing if anyone had done either of these to their corsa blue forte?
Thanks!

Wow, you read my mind. Was wondering the same thing after seeing a post earlier today. I think I like the red personally. It does make the grill pop.

I like what you did with the rims, they look niceeeeee, how has it worn? Not fallen off or anything? where did you buy yours from? ebay?
I got mine from autozone/advanced autoparts. here's how the packaging looks like




As for wearing, well i put on around begining of october, its now mid january and some of it it starting to come off, not to bad. Take into consideration that.

- I Power wash it once a week (at least once a week, including doing the rims up close)

-Its been through 3 month of salt

- 3 month of snow

-drifting in parking lots

-and 0 F degree temp.

I'd say it worth it for March/april - all the way to october.

Well... on my Elantra, i installed mine in mai 3 years ago and it still hold strong. Installed the one on the Forte in october too
(i'm way mori in the north, so cooler) and it didn't hold one day.

Be sure to clean the surface with rubing alcohol or wax degreaser before...

Make sure you install it in 50+ weather, it makes it stick stronger and longer, if you don't have 50+ weather, make sure you use a hair dryer to heat up the areas where ur gonna put it.


and one tip if you're gonna do it around the rims, have a lighter with you, around corners/curves, the tape will overlap, and crumble, so if you heat it up with a lighter, it takes the shape of the curve perfectly. Kinda if you ever did window Tint, you need to heat it up around curves so it doesnt crease.

I think the blue pops on the rims. I bet they don't make a color that matches the Kopperhead color though!
