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.

Yes. Camaro5 member Txturbo will be offering a few stripe combinations. PM him and he can tell you the specifics.

It definitely has been covered before. Check out this site. No pictures yet, but a coming section for the Camaro. You can also look at the options that are available for the Challenger today to get some ideas. I am sure there will be other places offering packages too.

If it's not one thing it's another, Hylton. Just when I'm ready to accept the hood stripes, especially after seeing the VR SS at Detroit, they short change us on the stock spoiler and leave it abashed and naked! Why, it's enough to make a fellow cancel his whole order rather than face the embarras....awh...nevermind...just kidding. But it REALLY is unacceptable to me, so I'm very glad to see you're on top of the situation as usual. I'm standing by.

EDIT: Just came from chevylaunch and the updated pictures of the rally stripes - short hood - DEFINITELY show the deck stripes going over the stock spoiler. Guess there's room for optimism.

Personally, I think the stripes will go over the spoiler and that whoever did the stripes on the VR car at NAIAS ran out of time (or tape). Definitely looks better coming over the spoiler IMO but let's wait to get the official word before starting unconfirmed rumors.

Same here, I can tolerate the short hood stripe however the trunk looks bad with short stripes, it needs to go over the spoiler for sure.

Be carefull with aftermarket stripes, they never "look" right to me. they can be "off" by a 1/8 of an inch and you will notice for sure. Its factory or nothing for me.

Is this a hockey stripe package I don't know about?

This is why all the after market stripes I might order will follow body lines exactly.

No it's still the same:

VYQ—Black Hood and Hockey Stripe
VYP—White Hood and Hockey Stripe
VYR—Cyber Gray Hood and Hockey Stripe

These packages get you the hockey stick stripes down the side of the car AND the large stripe down the hood and trunk AND the black stripe at the tailpanel. I believe that the back stripe is black regardless of which color your hockey stripe package is. The picture below shows the stripes you get when ordering LPO VYQ, VYP or VYR.

Since this is an LPO, you can tell the dealer which ones you would like to put on or leave off. They will also be available seperately.

Interesting - I didn't know that.

I don't want to pay the extra for the full package though. Maybe I can talk my dealer into ordering the LPO then just keeping the stripes to sell to somebody else, that way it shows up on my window sticker when I get the decklid stripe painted on... Would be nice, but I don't know if I'd be able to talk a dealer into doing it.

Which is why I suggest going to Txturbo for all your aftermarket stripe needs. He is one of us and is ordering a 5th gen so he knows what the factory stripes look like and can test fit them to get them perfect before making you a set. Most stripes are made by guys who don't have the car the stripe is being made for.

He has posted in the past that he will guarantee the EXACT fit as the factory stripes and will make them in any color you want. He is also willing to make the factory stripes for you but extend them so they will go past the hood if you prefer that look. Besides, he wouldn't dare show his face around here if he screwed up the stripes.

I will be doing something similar. I think I may hold off on installing the big hood/trunk stripe and then install it after a few years to give the car a different look. I also want the LPO to show up on my buildsheet so I will pay the extra $$ for stripes I may not use.

Well, the thing is that if I'm going to pay 500 bucks for just the decklid stripe so it can show up on my window sticker/build sheet/etc. I'd want paint for that pricing, not vinyl.

Like I said, maybe I can work out a deal with my dealer. Or with another member here to sell them the stripes (because they come from the factory in the trunk, right?) and I'll just use that money to get my paint.

If all you want is the black stripe that is on the silver car is in your signature, just order part number 92215975 from your dealers parts counter.

But then it won't show on my window sticker/build sheet.

Hence the dilemma.
