I think the flat black stripes will look crappy on yellow, orange, red and blue cars, and be OK looking to some people on black, gray and silver cars.

Well, at least that would take care of the debate about stripe length...

There were some "complications" though.... I'll post the pictures and the details in the Media forum later tonight....
Complications? Yikes...this is what worries me more than the color/finish!

You live in Texas. Do you live near Txturbo? Get him to apply them for you. He's been doing it for years.

This has been a concern since the day we found out that not all stripes would be factory installed.

I love flat black! I plan on having my car two toned with flat(suede) black on top, IOM on bottom in a few months.

You have confirmation - the Embalmer just came back from installing them on his car.

I'll wait to see pictures and for Scott's reply, but it looks like there will be a set of stripes on Ebay.

Flat black on the Black gloss will look cool...

Yep, cancel the stripe package and take the $470 and put it towards having glossy stripes painted on with a clear coat over the whole hood and trunk.

Two questions

Embalmer---can you live with these stripes? I really think they would be better if glossy BUT---just like everything else on this car, probably will look better in person. If I remember correctly the car looked better to you in person than in pictures. I grow more and more anxious for a real good look at real life SS.

How difficult would these stripes be to remove right away if I didn't want them? How difficult in a year or two from delivery? Never had decal stripes on a car before (At least decals this large) and it would comforting to know they could come off.

Thanks, Lovestanda

Damn....


Anyone want to buy a set of black rally stripes?

My dealer is checking if we can cancel them but I think it's too late. At least the invoice will show factory stripes even if I end-up getting them painted on now
