What stripe kit is this??

I don't have a pic because I don't know what it's called...

It is a kit the had stripes either side of the cowl on the good and then cuts out to some hash marks on the front side fenders...

I wish I knew more I saw a car in here with in in carbon fiber stripes, I want to do it in matte black.

I have a how to install thread on it

Love mine, but if you have the money, get it painted. Although not matteblack. Trust me when I say this but matte black is a nightmare!

Hard to keep looking nice. Same as with all the other matte strips and the 1LE hood wrap.

Carbon Fiber won't matter, it will be gloss.

As a detailer, matte black is the hardest thing to keep clean and maintain the look. If it's painted, it can not be polished or else it will turn glossy. If it is vinyl, not much can be used to clean it but soap and water, and then you will have spots. You have to apply some kind of dressing to even the look out and sometimes that just doesn't work.

Matte colors are the worst. Much more work than it's worth.

Anyone seen rear license plate surounds("wings") done in carbon fiber?
I saw some on a car this week in Atlanta.They really changed the look
of the rear of the car which to me has alway been the negative.The CF
sides next to the plate made the car look much lower and wider.
Anyone knows where I can buy?

I went with carbon fiber. Its more expensive then matte or other colors. When I bought the stripes it was right around $500. It has been pretty easy to keep clean. I wash it normally and then use some detail spray on them. They look really subtle and when the sun or lights hit them they stand out.

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!
