Which stripes will you be getting, if any?
 
I'm having an equal amount of a hard time deciding on which types of stripes I plan on getting, just as much as deciding on the color. Which stripes do you want, and what color(s)?

Melson 12-18-2008 09:53 PM

blackZbandit 12-18-2008 10:19 PM

After market 3M vinyl

OUR72GTO 12-19-2008 12:51 AM

I should keep this to myself but since most on here are worthy ....The 2 TONE interior will work really well with a hood and deck stripe in black to match the effect inside.:happyanim::happyanim::happyanim:

None from the dealer either, probably aftermarket from www.ridergraphix.com.
They have many designs and are monitoring this site for ideas , or you can submit your ideas to them

One more option is needed:

Custom stripes either painted or vinyl

Not sure yet. I'm trying to figure out if black stripes will look good on CMG. It's such a pretty color and I don't want to mess it up. I also don't know if the stripes will stand out enough on that color.

mcernik 12-19-2008 10:34 AM

Removed mine from the order, will do aftermarket or get painted ones ...

IRONMAN/SS 12-19-2008 11:59 AM

where do I get those dual stripes that come from the tire well and continue to the edge of the hood?

Ant 12-19-2008 12:07 PM

If you guys don't mind me asking, why do a lot of people not want them from the factory or dealer?

linkwpc 12-19-2008 12:44 PM

I'm getting it painted!

Personally, I've found people that offer hockey stick stripes (the ones of my fancy) that are body length on 4th gens for $110 and are pretty good quality. Also, I'm very detail oriented and would just as soon apply the decals myself. If I can get them from someone else and apply them myself, why pay over double the cost for stripes from the factory/dealer?

I will note that, if everything goes as planned, I'll get a Camaro that already has the stripes on it.

I'll be getting rally stripes, but they will be custom painted.

GrnMchin 12-19-2008 02:44 PM

Painted rally strips, Just say no to stickers unless theirs sponsors.

2010_5thgen 12-19-2008 04:44 PM

Mostly for 3 reasons.

A) Quality of workmanship from the person putting them on.
B) Durability of the material used
C) The stripes not extending past the hood.

While "C" is actually just a minor annoyance to the vast majority of people, "A" and "B" are the biggest reasons.

I must disagree, Draco. There is no basis for your ranking of A, B and C except your opinion. No polls have been taken here concerning workmanship or stripe durability.
In the poll that was taken concerning stripes extending past the hood http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9238, 130 out of 166 to date have said they wanted longer stripes. That's 78% of the people who voted that were actually getting stripes. Yet you call it a minor annoyance to "the vast majority of people." I believe you have that backwards, since those in the poll satisfied with the stripes ending on the hood was only 22%. Stripe length, C, is the only substantiated reason for not wanting factory or dealer installed stripes.

IMO... GM has no quality or worksmanship problem putting the stripes on. If there were then they would not be offered at all.

The issue seems to have started with the perception of potential increased and unacceptable production delays on the front of the car and a follow on decision making process that was and is incomplete. At the rear of the car the problem is the stripe termination points on both of the rear accessory air dams currently planned for production as accessories.

It is what it is- for now:yikes:

I kinda agree with you. The black looks fine as is.

Rodrunner 12-20-2008 12:29 PM

I'm getting black and you guys are right, it will look great without stripes. But I like the sporty, retro look of the stripes, yet I don't want them to stand out too much and grab all one's attention, so I've chosen the cyber gray. Check out this Challenger with that color scheme: http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challenger_Silver_Hood.jpg And I believe the cyber gray is darker than those stripes on the Chally and so will stand out even less.

This shot reverses the colors, but gives you an idea of what the Camaro factory stripes ending at the front of the hood will look like: http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challeng...d_Install2.jpg and this http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challeng...erno_Hood1.jpg

I have to admit, the stripes ending on the hood is starting to grow on me. Plus, there's my desire to in no way resemble the fairly large number of Mustangs I see with the stripes on the fascia and even some down to the air dam, even though longer was the original Camaro stripe length.
It's whatever you like.
