On June 2014 we got a client who wanted car racing stripes on their 2014 Camaro Saleen.  See how we made it happen!

Car Racing Stripes

Car racing stripes gives any car a cooler look.  The 2014 Camaro Saleen we worked on looked awesome after we painted on the car racing stripes.  This process is pretty quick if the client knows they look they are going for.  There are several options when it comes to car racing stripes.  You can add racing stripes on three main parts of a car, the hood, the roof, and the trunk.  The owner of the Camaro wanted car racing stripes only on the hood, and this is how we did it.

2014 Camaro Saleen Racing Stripes

First, like mentioned before, we talked to our client and they let us know the look they wanted.  Once we know what they want, we make the measurements and prepare the car to paint the car racing stripes.



Next we removed the hood, since this was the only part of the car that was going to be painted.  Removing the hood makes it easier to align the stripes and paint the car racing stripes.


The hood is completely masked except the parts that we paint.  We use a special blue tape to reinforce the lines.


Finally we painted the stripes the same color as the side stripes of the Camaro Saleen and it turned out really nice.  What do you think?




“I took my Mini Cooper to West Coast Body & Paint for what I believed would need an entire new lower bumper. To my surprise Jaider explained how and why it didn’t need to be replaced after all. When making the appointment I told him I needed a new bumper. Instead of taking advantage of the opportunity his honesty and professionalism totally came through. My daughter has spoken highly of him for years and I can see why. Thank you Jaider!”

Ourestimates are always free and you are welcome to come by our shop anytime or make an appointment.  We know that many clients like the convenience of sending pictures of their car and request an estimate; but, in reality an estimate by this means is not really reliable.  Why?  Because the estimate will either be too high or too low.  In order to assess the damage and give an estimate, a car needs to be seen by a professional and in person.  This insures that the estimate is as accurate as possible, not too high or too low.  For more information click here.

If you are not able to come by our shop during normal working hours, you can give us a call or send us an email, and make an appointment when you can come, in most cases we are able to accommodate our clients.
