Stripes, overlays, blackouts and tint done

Thanks to Big Worm Motorsports for answering all my silly arse questions about vinyl. Great products, quick shipping installed everything except Rallies myself thx to great videos on their site. Installer works with many dealers in this area and said vinyl was good quality.

The gills and Camaro letter overlays are an experiment. Not sure they will stay. I like it but may be a bit much...too early to decide.

I know some of you have done your own stripes, Im looking at ordering some and doing them myself, and suggestions of where to get them, and how do install them? Would ordering GM stripes be better?

It really depends on how big of a decal you're wanting to apply. The smaller stripes are very easy to do....but if this is your first time a larger rally type decal will be challenging....but do-able if you don't get in a hurry. There are a lot of how to videos on you tube you will want to study. The main thing is not to get in a hurry.

Of course you can use them. I planned to submit some but was waiting to get pics that are not in a parking lot or my driveway, but if you think they are ok. please go ahead. I need to send you a newer one with the "SS" on the cowl.

I can't express enough how much I appreciate the customer service helping me get comfortable with my purchase. I have had more "hey man" conversations about my car in the last few days than in the last month. My Camaro is now rock'n cool but not too much. I won't see six others like it on my commute this week. Thanks Big Worm Motorsports.

Honestly, I wish I gad the talent to take pictures that do these products justice.

+1

Check out install videos. IMHO the rally stripes are best left to an experienced installer (check with dealers for outsourced installers) the hood (SS) has complex curves. Most of the other applications are doable just don't rush and FOLLOW DIRECTIONS or videos.

I loved the Synergy Edition stripes...probably because they are different...so I had them painted on:

That looks great UHP. Thanks for posting them. That's what I was trying to put on in vinyl, but I think the painted on looks a lot better.

If you want a variation, we can possibly customize them to what you want. Email me at info@ridergraphix.com and I will see what I can do for you.

Some like them,some hate them but I like them because they are alittle different than the norm.
I like.

Still looking the through the thread, but I am shocked there isnt a darker yellow strip to put on the yellow camaro. Or is there a set?
