2023 Special Edition Style Rear Stripes
We have sold special edition stripes for the A91 Supra and thought they would look good on the new BRZ / GR86 as well. The proportions of the vehicles are different and when Toyota made the official announcement, we knew we had to try it.
Over 15 tries at it and we found what seems to be the most aesthetically please design in terms of complimenting the natural body lines of the vehicle.
NOTE: Sold as a set. 4 total stripes. 2 for driver's side and 2 for passenger side.
3D Carbon Dragon Wrap™ Carbon Fiber Film is a 5.6 mil calendered vinyl film featuring a clear repositionable permanent acrylic adhesive on an air-egress liner. This film has excellent dimensional stability, outstanding durability and outdoor performance. This repositionable permanent adhesive offers minimal initial bond growing to permanent bonds that facilitates application of large graphics. The air egress liner also aids in large graphic application.
Lasts up to 5 years outdoors.
Other materials are sourced in the USA as well.
Care Details: Concept Carbon Fiber film should be maintained to preserve long term appearance using standard aftercare products designed for textured exterior vinyl surfaces. A commercially available protectant such as Armor All or 303 Aerospace Protectant is recommended. DO NOT use waxes of any type.
Clean the application area and have soapy water available. Use a drop of dish soap mixed with a full cup of water. We favor our StickerFab Application fluid even more than soapy water though.
Ideal installation temperature is 70-80 degrees and not in direct sunlight or wind. The sunlight may heat up the body panels and/or vinyl too much. This causes it to become flimsy and the shape to change easily.
Apply some of the soapy water to the bottom of the vinyl. It will allow you to slide the vinyl around until you find the proper placement. It will also aide in removing air bubbles.
You want to get the alignment of the piece so that it contours the fenders. Start with the larger piece and use the defroster lines on the rear window as a point of reference. You will want to align the front edge of the larger piece at approximately the sixth defroster lines. Please see the photos.
Once you have to aligned, use your fingers (or a squeegee / credit card wrapped in microfiber) to push out the air and water. To speed up the process of drying you can use light heat from a heat gun or hair dryer.
When the first piece is aligned, begin to apply the smaller piece. It will sit behind the larger stripe by approximately 1 5/16" (or two fingers).
Repeat for the other side.

I was a little hesitant in buying but these decals are awesome! Great quality and easy to install. Took me pretty much less than 30 mins to finish
Very fast service, quality product and perfect fitment. I installed them in less than 30 minutes.
