So this is probably a stupid question, but just to verify, the rally stripes are the dual stripes that are both on the hood and the back of the car right?

^Agreed. After a couple years of keeping the car waxed/polished, those edges are going to start peeling. If they're not painted on, then no stripes for me.

Did anybody notice the light blue color on the Camaro - this reminds me of the Jetstream Blue. Is this the new Blue instead of Imperial Blue? If so, I'll get the light blue color - you can't see the pollen on the car as much with a color like Jetstream Vs. Imperial.

It's called Aqua Blue Metallic and both it and Imperial Blue Metallic will be offered.

1979 Camaro...the stripes are STILL there, with no problems beyond fading. Different materials, possibly...but I can't say I'm super worried about it. (even though I won't be striping my car)

How often do you wax your 1979 camaro and is it ke[t out of the sun most of the time? Vinyl stripes after so many years get very dry in hot/humid weather like we have in Miami, Florida. Couple that with waxing the car and rubbing around the edges once a week or more and after 5 years or so you will start seeing fading and or cracking if not both. The same goes with soft top convertible tops. They fade after years of being in the sun.. I will not be ordering with vinyl stripes and I will see who can do the best job painting in black or grey ones. WIth a clearcoat on top of the layer of paint, I wonder how that works? Do they have to strip the clearcoat down and sand the area the needs to be painted before applying the paint and then re-applying the clearcoat? Just curious..

They can paint them over the factory clear coat and the clear over them. Of course you could also clear over the vinyl to.

On my current vehicle I have gold rally strips which go from the front of the hood ... over the roof .. and down the truck. They were put on back in 2000 and even though the car has mainly been stored in the garage, I noticed fading beginning about 4 years ago. This year, the 8th year for these vinyl decals, I've started to notice cracking and am now in the process of having them replace with new ones. Problem being is that it is very time consumming to do so and also, the paint underneath no longer matches the rest of the panels due to the fact that it has never been exposed to sun.

My bet for the camaro is to wait until the dealers start getting models for the showroon then have the body shop manager, a friend of mine, quote on what it would be to do the single stripe on the hood and trunk in silver metallic and leave it like that without the hockey stripes on the side. I'm guessing, but I think it sould come in around the $500 - $600 Canadian range. Hey, if this allows me to ge 20 years out of it, ... I think it would be well worth the expense!

I would think it would be worse here in the Desert Southwest. My hood scoop decals on my 83 Z didn't last long at all. I eventually had the dealer paint them. I believe they did it for free, so they could have deteriorated within the 1 year warranty period! But this is probably comparing apples to oranges. Who knows what the difference in materials are today. Better, I would suspect.

I put vinyl stripes on my 98 SS and they lasted for 7yrs before I started to see fading. The car is garaged and covered most of the time. I never had any problems with waxing. They looked painted on until you got about 5ft away. I just recently had the vinyl removed and had them painted. Looks 100% better, but costly.

This is JohnnyCamaro AKA John Cox from GM Accessories, You will be able to purchase the Rally Stripes and also get Hockey Stripes without the Hood and Rear Decklid piece if that is what you desire.

GM Accessory Offerings for Stripes....

This is JohnnyCamaro-AKA John Cox from GM Accessories and I wanted everyone to know what exact colors we will be offering for the stripe packages.

For the Rally Stripes we have:
Black
Orange
Silver
Cyber Gray
White

For the Hood and Hockey Stripe Package (includes decklid as well)
Black
Gray
White

All of the above will be available as an RPO code on the initial dealer order guide and on the window sticker or as an over the counter GM Accessory for after the purchase of the vehicle.

For those who only want Hockey Stripes and not the hood and decklid piece they will be available as an over the counter accessory to purchase as well.

I hope this helps everyone in their decision of how to personalize their Camaros. Its almost here!!!
