How though? I can even't reach the edge behind the grill reaching through that opening on the bumper. Or is there a way to reach it from the engine bay? Some hint please?

The stripe gets applied right in front of the grill.

lol happens to the best of us. i ended up putting a zip tie around the roll of tape so it would stop coming undone. holding the long bit of the zip tie in my teeth (and by extension the rest of the tape) and then applying little segments of the tape across the the curvy down section of the grill, and then longer sections across the flat part. did it in like 2 mins first try. super simple

Yeah I actually would measure it and then cut out a piece with some extra then slowly apply while peeling the back off. That way I won't have have a big roll hanging behind me and I'll have 1 piece through out the entire length. The same method used to apply vinyl.

Seems like it would be easiest to start in the middle and work toward the ends.

I started on the passenger side of the grill. I used a flat head screwdriver to push the tape all the way to the top of the grill. Then I worked inch by inch to the drivers side of the grill

This is what I was and plan on doing. I'm going for 1 piece continuosly not multiple pieces. It isn't hard if you know how to apply vinyl stickers. I've done a lot of DIY vinyls and stickers so I'm quite familiar with these stuff. Got some carbon fiber eyelids coming for my head lights as well.

Blue on blue looks dank.

I didn't mean in different segments. I meant that I peeled the paper off in segments. So I was sure every section was properly aligned

He was probably going for the weed slang association indicating "cool, dope, sweet, awesome".

The stripes aren't that expensive bro. I'm sure someone can throw you a couple yards. Stripping is a gateway job...soon you'll be--- let's just say it's a slippery slope.
