"Yeah I was just thinking of not getting the stripes when I order and just have them do the body work for the high wing when I get the car... then buy the stripes after and have them installed" (TaylorRyan74)

"I'd like to get the blade spoiler. Since it fits flush with the body as opposed to the high mounted spoiler I'm hoping it attaches the same as the stock spoiler, no repainting and body work required. I'm also assuming then I'll have to go the dealer stripes route. My concern, would the dealer stripe kit be long enough to cover the blade spoiler? And am I correct in assuming it will attach without body work and repainting? Thanks" (Stovt001)

2. Find someone who bought a red LS (no spoiler) and trade him your factory spoiler trunk lid for his non spoiler trunk lid. Install high wing and dealer stripes. Should be easy to do this even though very few LS will initially be available. This is currently my best suggestion.

3. Order a new trunk lid, paint it red and then install the wing spoiler on it and re-stripe that trunk lid while keeping/selling the original with the factory installed stripes/spoiler.


This whole issue of fitment, stripe application, and how long, who will install (with the hi wing and the blade) is kind of an embarrassing blemish on what otherwise looks to be a good roll out. Is it just me or does it seem that the stripes and how they co-exist with the rest of the car was managed as a complete afterthaught when it came time for production? I mean body work -or switching a deck lid on a brand new car??

I think we deserve a little better then this.

^^ Well the high wing spoiler ease of installation was certainly an afterthought.

If you are talking about the rally stripes then I believe they will stop half-way up the blade spoiler. The stripes will certainly not wrap around the blade spoiler to be visible on the rear part of the blade.

If you are talking about the large stripe then it does not matter which spoiler you select because it is designed to run underneath the spoiler.

I'm thinking for now I'll be going with rally stripes. I didn't expect them to wrap around the spoiler, but I'd like them to go all the way to the top on the front side. Ending half way up would look weird. Maybe I'll just reconsider the blade spoiler. It is starting to sound like more problems than it is worth.

Hey, Hylton. Freezin' your butt off up there in CA? I noticed in the '09 GMPP catalog that's recently been posted in a thread here that the Hockey Stripe package has been broken apart, but only the Hockey stripe is available separately, no Hood stripe only. And either way they're only available in grey, black and white. This might be the same info. as shown in the SEMA pics on page 2 which won't display for me here at work. If so, sorry for reposting. I thought maybe you hadn't seen it since your first page stripe facts list has not changed. Of course, being GMPP, only those numbers are given, no RPO or LPO codes.

And this is off subject, but can you shed any light for me on the exact uses of LPO and RPO codes. I know what the accronyms stand for, but if RPO is a code to be used at the time of ordering the car and installed at the factory, when is an LPO code used for dealer installed items, also at the time of ordering? And then after delivery a GMPP number must be used?

Hi Rod - you get used to the cold after a while, just ask Santa! The easiest way to describe the definitiin of the codes is that RPO means factory installed option and LPO means dealer installed or acquired option.

So the rally stripes don't wrap around the spoiler like this?

There's no official name but we have been calling it the SS or RS spoiler.

My guess is that they are Lemans stripes. Check with the Corvette crew. The LE Ron Fellows Corvette comes with those stripes from the factory so you might want to research that car.

Hi -- opinion needed -- would cyber gray metallic stripes on silver ice metallic 2ss/rs look ok or would black look better? After looking at a few of the photo shop pic's I just can't decide if there would be enough contrast between the 2 colors. Don't want the stripes to fade into the body color. Also I think I read in some thread that you could now order & pay for just the hockey stripe. I don't really like that one wide hood stripe.

To answer your first question, it's purely a matter of personal taste. On a silver car, I much prefer the black stripes as it will stand out more. You will be able to order the hockey stick stripes without the wide one. Look for an earlier post showing the part numbers for black and grey hockey stick stripes. Please note that if ordering only hockey stick stripes, you must order them as an LPO (dealer installed).

Very good to know. Though I'll probably be getting mine painted on, I'll definitely take a looksie and see what you have available once the car comes out...

Awesome thread. Seeing all these factory options makes me wish more Automakers gave this much choice rather than relying on the aftermarket.

I guess the only gripe would be dealer MSRP......waaaay overpriced.

^^^Are you sure you can get aftermarket stripes, including the pinstripe around the wide stripe, installed for less than $395? Actually sounds pretty cheap to me, and I've seen someone here state they got a quote of $500 installed.
Painted of course will run even more.

Rodrunner - send a PM to Txturbo. He is our resident custom stripe guru and will be making a lot of aftermarket stripe packages. He will be able to give you a very accurate price as to what costs will be.
