Question Orange or faded red Interior

I have ordered a blk 2ss/rs and did not go with the IO "orange" upgraded interior because I'm getting red rally stripes put on. but, I have been hearing that the interior looks more redish than orange. For the people that have actually seen the interior, what color is it closer to Red or orange? Thanks

I would definitely not try to mix red and IOM. Now, if you match the stripes with the interior on that car, it would be pretty bad a$$ looking.

+1


What is interesting though is I have the paint chips from the dealer and on the back the IO interior is an option on the Victory Red.

I'd have to see that in real life.

I agree. Everyone has said that the red interior kit was dropped because it looked too close to the orange. Just not my cup of tea though.

Don't waste your money on the factory vinyl stripes...they will scratch and give you a wax buildup at the edges after a few years.

Find a local reputable body shop and get your stripes painted on and color matched to your preference. Have them clear coated in to blend with your factory paint. You won't even be able to feel the edges and you should be able to get it done for about twice the price (or less) than the vinyl junk.

You will be very proud when you park next to a car with a factory/dealer stripe kit. He will probably be envious and wish he had done that. The vinyl stuff looks good at first, but just doesn't stand the test of time. And the factory color options leave a lot to be desired.

I'm no body shop guy but I spoke with 2 body shop managers here that I know are reputable and both of them said the same thing. That if you have the stripes painted on you will feel the edges even once clear coated. The only way to eliminate this would be to do several clear coats (one estimated 4-5, the other estimated 5-6 min) which of course adds more cost. And if you're going to match the size/location of the OE stripes them it's more than just the hood and trunk that needs to be cleared. The entire from facia (all one piece) would need to be as well. Long story short, the cost starts to add up real quick.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have my stripes painted. But I also know that the OE quality vinyl is a lot better than most aftermarket and should last a while. Plus, given that they are dealer or factory installed options, they'll be covered under warranty. If you have a 3rd party body shop shoot stripes on your baby they won't be warrantied, and GM probably wouldn't warranty the finish on those body panels.

I look at it this way, get the vinyl stripes for now. If you don't like them you can take them off. If they don't last you can take them off and either replace them with the same or have painted stripes put on. That way they are also on the LPO code / option list that comes with the car (more value from a collector standpoint). But, if you want custom colour stripes, get 'em painted. Just my $0.02.
