Hello all,
I'm new to the group and just purchased a new 2021 GT00 with vinyl strips. Has anyone else had issues with the strips coming off?

Welcome to the forum! The only issues I’ve seen across social media are when someone used a pressure washer or took their car though an automated car wash. The owner’s manual talks about avoiding both of those.

I know you put this in our new member section, but since it wasn’t an intro thread, I moved it to our problems section. If you are up for introducing yourself and showing us your Shelby, you can make an intro thread here:

Yes it does, but this was hand wash with a wash glove.

My vinyl still looks as good as new a year later. Just have to be mindful when washing the car and use common sense. No issues.

You can use a pressure washer on the stripes, but use a 45 degree nozzle and stay at least 2 feet away from the surface. Hand wash anything that doesn’t come off with that method.

No problem with vinyl stripes coming off here. Just follow the advice of NOT pressure washing it, ie, any type of the automatic car washes. I wouldn’t even consider taking a painted striped model through any type of pressure washing. Just my 2 cents.

Just confirming… you mention 2021 GT500 in the first post, but you have 2012 listed under your screen name. This is a 2021 we are talking about… right?
