Wow those look really nice..

Does anyone know if they will customize it with a sunroof? I have a sunroof on my car and don't want to deal with cutting it out and messing it up on my own.

Or maybe I just get the hood piece only? Would that look weird without it carrying all the way over the body?

yes, if you are interested in buying them just go to the nightshades thread that was listed above and comment saying what you want... and say you have a sunroof and then he will send you a pm with the price and you go from there

What stripe kit is this??

I have the matte black NS-1 stripes on my ZL1 and have no problems keeping them looking nice. I also have a sunroof and they have no problems customizing them. PM SSTG or Night Shades. They will take care of you.

To keep the matte stripes looking perfect I use this:

Here are pics of mine:

Man that looks so sick. A lot of people talked on here on how it is such a pain to keep up etc. I guess when waxing, just don't wax the stripes and detail with that Chemical Guys stuff. I like the subtlety of the matte v. the carbon fiber.

Your ride is AWESOME!

Thanks man! Definitely keep wax away from the matte stripes. When waxing, I actually tape off the edges with blue painters tape to make sure I don't get any on them. Regular detail spray will work on them, but I find the matte detail spray works better to keep the finish.

Good luck with your decision!
