No, they are a 2 layer vinyl.

1st Layer is Dark Grey Metallic Vinyl
2nd Layer is High Gloss Clear Vinyl

The 2nd layer provides UVA & UVB protection as well as that High Gloss look to make it seem as if it was painted.

I love the stripes. Did you install them yourself? How much were they?

A friend of mine ( Dan ) at getwrapped.ca in Oshawa did them for me and the total bill was only $395 Canadian + Taxes. Less than the $450 it would of cost to have GM do them and ended up with a custom job ( non factory look ) instead.!

Awesome car you have that Retrodude!!! I'm going with the same color scheme, but black leather. Are the stripes Cyber grey, or just something similar from another brand? I'm looking into vinyl stripes for my custom trunk and would like to know if it's the same color as stock.

Thanks!

Hi Mindz,

They are as close to the Cyber Grey colour I could get, however, they are about 1 or 2 shades lighter than the actual CGM colour.

Are they under a coat of clear, or can you feel the lip of the vinyl? They look painted.

They are a 2-ply Vinyl ... 1st layer ( BASE ) Grey Metallic ... 2nd layer ( TOP ) High Gloss Clear vinyl

Both are applied to the top of the paint, but no clear coat is required!

From a distance it looks painted on, but up close you can definately feel the edges of the vinyl as it is 2 layers thick unlike GM's factory 1 layer vinyl.

Still, for about $395 Canadian, I know I couldn't of done any better unless of course I forked out $1,500 + to have them professionally painted on. Perhaps, later?
