02 Do not pull the tape taut, or you will “stretch” it, making it narrower. One stripe on most longitudinal Mopar stripes will follow a body line or edge. On the Dart Sport, the bottom edge of the top stripe follows this center body line. This separating 1⁄4-inch space between the two sections of stripe will be the first tape we put down, on the lower edge of the body line. This is simply a guideline strip. Lay it down and make sure it is straight, then apply finger pressure along the length to hold it in place.
