Check out this Challenger with that color scheme: http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challenger_Silver_Hood.jpg And I believe the cyber gray is darker than those stripes on the Chally and so will stand out even less.

This shot reverses the colors, but gives you an idea of what the Camaro factory stripes ending at the front of the hood will look like: http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challeng...d_Install2.jpg and this http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challeng...erno_Hood1.jpg

I have to admit, the stripes ending on the hood is starting to grow on me. Plus, there's my desire to in no way resemble the fairly large number of Mustangs I see with the stripes on the fascia and even some down to the air dam, even though longer was the original Camaro stripe length.
It's whatever you like.

You have it made since the cosmetic flaws that are so visible with the lighter colors are hidden to a degree with the darker colors. Black is the best. I am glad you are going to be happy. GM however is not getting my money without a solid fix. IOM and short white rally's make me want to puke. The front of the car is a disaster.

Other complications that have emerged are HUD then no HUD and ABL and no ABL. See the main forum area for this emerging set of problems.

I am SO glad you pointed that out, COPO. I never stopped to think about the mailslot being a lot less visible on a black car and thus not clashing so much with the stripes. Thanks!
Still though, I'd prefer them onto the fascia, not wrapped around the front edge, just near it.

Yeah, I've checked out the ABL debacle. It's been on the CTS for two years; they'll git 'er dun.

But somewhere along the line I missed seeing that the HUD was a prospective feature. If I had known I guess I'd be really pissed, but since I haven't been looking forward to it....eh. Like you say though, it's another brick in the wall!

No stripes for me, just the rear tail blacked out like the LS7 Camaro.

To rally stripe or not to rally stripe - this question has been bugging me for months! As of now I just have the plain SIM, but I have been on the fence about putting some black rally's on it since I ordered, well actually before then even lol! I think it will look better, but I have held off because I still want the car to look professional and all so when I pull up to a job interview hopefully no one will make any premature assumptions about me for driving a sportscar with racing stripes. I guess I'll vote no stripes for now, but that could change.

No stripes, they are lame with the exception of some custom painted ones.

I'm on the fence, but it's easy enough to fix that aftermarket so it's no big deal to not get them from the factory.

If one of the mods will change my vote from hood/hockey to no stripes...

I've decided the only striping I'll be doing will be a section of the decklid - like my sig pic below, and I'll be having it painted on. And the stock LT wheels will be painted like the wheels in my avatar.

I never even gave it much thought because I don't want vinyl. If it was painted on, the Hockey Stripes might just be a must!!! Full length Rally Stripes would look very good too.
