What makes you think it was restriped incorrectly?

Best example of original striping I have uploaded is here:

My redone stripe kit has small stripes instead of the larger and multiple stripes around the wheel wells instead of the one larger. That is if your picture is stock. Thanks KKing

hey kking, did you buy your own kit to replace your old stripes? the striping on my AE is beginning to crack and peel and I don't want my AE to look unkempt because of these stickers.

Any help on how I could replace these stripes or at least fix them is appreciated.

The pics that Stu84na posted above are of my car- I want to clarify that in addition to the stock stripes, my Z has some pretty crazy handpainted stripes that the former owner added, so don't get confused between the two. The factory stripes separate the black and silver two tone paint- everything above was added. Here are a few more recent pics (the one's Stu posted were taken circa 1997- these were from 2004.

AZ-- ugg, I wish my AE was all stock- actually I was going to remove the louvers a while back (already took off the ones on the hatch b/c of all the rattles...), but I'm concerned about messing up the window seals....

They don't exactly do wonders for visability- but I guess they do round out the totally 80's package quite well.

Hope all is well- sorry I didn't make it to MoSport this year.

Window glass is much wider than the louvers. But I guess if you pull too hard, they might break some of the seal.

I didn't either. The week before the show, I rear ended someone with the convertible I was intending on bringing. The AE isn't going anywhere with a blown head gasket, and won't be seeing any repairs until the 'vert is done.

BTW: are you in the 50th AE database?

Thanks for the pictures. Without an orginal factory kit the only way I know of to replace the striping is to buy the black and gold stripes from a paint store and piece it up. I'll just have to guess at the width of the stripes. KKing
