we will have to wait and see, its hard to make long pieces of vinyl look good if they get too thin because they stretch. that is one consideraton of the thickness on the outside stripe.

My thoughts exactly...this may change my mind if they are that big..I don't think they would look good...but I will wait and see...Headpunter...did you see the black stripes on the grey car in the Welburn vid...they looked ok...or do you think they were painted on?

That's true for high production volume cars. You can still get them on the Viper but it's a $3000 option.

I hope you can check off the hood stripe if you opt for the hockeys. I want those, but that hood stripe that apparently comes with them I can do without.

The photos from the presentation are just photoshop renderings and don't mean the production stripes will look exactly like that. The pinstripe around the stripes can be much smaller (they are much smaller on my car and came from the factory that way). Also, even though the renderings show the stripes going past the hood I'm guessing they will stop on the hood, we know they have actually made those stripes (we saw them in the CNBC video) plus if the stripes were to go past the hood they would have to offer different stripes for the v6 and v8 cars unless they made you cut the slits for the ss bumper yourself which I can't see happening.

How do vinyl stripes look? Do the look cheap like decals or are they at least not noticeable?
