Which rear stripe designs do you prefer?

As suggested, here's a poll to see which style you like better:

the Over-the-Spoiler style as seen at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson Auction


or the On-Top style as seen at the 2009 NAIAS

"On-the-top" by a wide margin for me.

The over-the-spoiler version seems unfinished and just slapped on there. If it goes over, than it needs to go over and UNDER, imo...don't end ON the spoiler like that.

Hard decision, they both have their flaws. One looks unfinished, the other can't be seen. I would rather be able to see them, so over the spoiler for me.

are you wanting something more like this?


i think that style looks like there's no 'completion' or 'resolution' to the stripes to just end somewhere in the crack under the spoiler

I think the on-top of the spoiler look matches the front stripes ending at the end of the hood. If the front stripes were to continue down the nose to the mail-slot (I already understand why they don't, I'm just making an observation) then the over-the-spoiler look would match up better (more of how Dragoneye was speaking about though). My vote was on top of the spoiler, it just matches better... IMHO.

800th post... yay!

Looking back, the Z28 stripes followed the pattern from Zebra's pic.

Front: They went all the way down the front of the car for the first 3 years, then in 70 they started circling it off at the end of the hood.

Back: Always slipped into the trunk so it looked "unfinished". It was not rounded off on top of or behind the car.

It was a very close call for me, but I lean towards the stripes that wrapped over the spoiler and around the back. I'll be fine with either design.

That's EXACTLY what I think they should do...finish the darn things.

That's the best one, but out of the options given, I side with Dragoneye. The way they finished the over-spoiler stripes just looks incomplete.

Just like Bumblebee. What about the front? Can you add that to the poll? I would prefer they ended at the mail slot, not on the hood. This would however add pieces to the stripe kit as well as labor for install, so there would be an increase in cost.

If the over the spoiler will look like the one at barrett jackson, then it should be like the one at NAIAS; however, if the over the spoiler looked like bumblebee, that's the best. I voted for on-top out of the two choices we had.

I like over the spoiler better out of the two, but I would like to see a stripe kit that would come all the way down the rear. I think that would look nice,
