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).

I just wanted to let you guys know I have been receiving the emails with stripe ideas, and I have been compiling them. As soon as we can get a car to use for a template, we will be adding them to our website. http://www.ridergraphix.com

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.

I think there may be some confusion here. It all depends on how you read the line from Scotty's original IDL post

"Factory may apply more stripes in near future"

I didn't take it as more stripes to come, I took as GM will allow some more of the current stripes to be applied at the factory (not just CG & white). Am I wrong. I just want to make sure since there's already a lot of misinformation out there (and not just on this subject)

Good catch. As it is there are a ton of stripe options so it seems more likely to me that the factory will just install more of the existing options that were previously dealer-only. If they offer even more options overall I think my head will explode.

I think that's right. We've gotten a pretty definite word from fbodfather that there would be no longer stripes, at least for now, and it's rather late for any new type of stripe. So I also assume this means more colors installed at the factory where the installers are better trained and there's less chance of rework. But its is a rather ambiguous statement, so who knows.

Question about some of the GMPP stripes.



This is a pic from sema of the decklid stripe I was thinking of getting, and there is a part number, but its not listed in the 2009 catalog - just an error of omission or was it nixed?

Question for CamaroScotty (or anyone else)...

Now that we know more stripes will be available from the factory, when can we expect the new RPO codes to be available? Hopefully in time for me to add black stripes to my CGM.

When is unknown. Wait until the next IDL I would suspect.

My dollar says the information was not available when the catalog was printed. It was definitely not nixed as it is part of the hockey stick stripe package.

Can we update this thread, looking at the latest car with stripes, it indicates that the REAR stripes do NOT go over the stock spoiler. Sucks...:(

I have requested a clarification from GM. I want to get the official word before changing the information. I will update as soon as I here anything.
