Stripes at the Wheel Arches

Should the ends of the fender stripes be cut as an arc to follow the curves of the wheel arches or should they be straight?

Arched. When you order the kit, they come pre-cut.

Not always.

That may be one of the differences between and expensive set and a cheap set.

Over the years I've ordered 3 sets: all were precut.
If you like, I think I have a couple spares - I could mail to you to use as a template.

The original assembly-line stripes had an arc.
