Apologies if this has already been asked elsewhere but I couldn’t find anything.

Ive recently bought a carbon fibre access panel and was wondering if anyone knew a company that could supply the coloured stripe decals like the attached image.

I used tape on mine.  Works really well.  Will dig out where I got it from.

Sure, will take some tonight when I get home.  Still trying to find the bl**dy link for buying them!

They are painted on, and then the whole panel is lacquered over

I know someone who doesn’t have factory stripes / ‘cat scratches’ on their car - they have used stick on coloured stripes of similar widths (not sure of dimensions but would guess 0.5cm- 0.75cm), with front ends cut at a 45 degree angle - it looks quite convincing. I wasn’t looking in detail and had to be told to realise that the stripes weren’t factory.

Thanks for the replies. I ideally don’t want to paint the stripes as I’m currently not 100% if I want them or not. At least vinyl decals would be easy to remove if I don’t like them.

Easy DIY project....buy some vinyl wrap material of the color you want, cut to width you'd like and install.  Alternatively, any professional "wrap" shop could do it -- it would be a quick and easy job for them.

But can they be found on the market for lacquered adhesive tapes ?

... to be similar to that of the front access panel of 380 or 430 (red maybe a little dark)

Do you know any brand?

It's not out there as far as I know. Could buy the deroure masking template and then have wrap cut in correct sizing. 

If more people are interested and contribute I could buy the template and share.
