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,

Mods - change my vote to on-the-top, please?

Of the two options, I've decided I like on-the-top better. IF the stripes went all the way around and ended at the bottom of the spoiler, I would view it differently.

The OP should add Dragoneye's option of the BB style to the poll!!! Then there would be a lot of vote change requests!!

Over and to the bottom of the spoiler for sure!!! And it'll probably be done that way because of the tricky labor involved in terminating it on the front or rear of the spoiler.

Over the tail, with the rounded edges and pinstripe rounding it out. If it just ends where the tail leaves off, THAT's what looks unfinished to me!

I obviously prefer complete rear spoiler coverage, which the aftermarket will take care of ALONG with past the mail slot. Going aftermarket is really the best thing to do if you want the aesthetic you were looking for from the get-go. Originality isn't worth all these complications such as unfinished coverage of the rear spoiler.

Frankly, I not so religious about the stripes. So either one will be fine. I noticed that the two cars with stripes that are out at the auto shows have the stripes that stop at the top of the spoiler and the one auctioned off at BJ had the stripes that went down the back. And when I was watching BJ earlier today they were talking about the stripes on a 1969 Z28 and they pointed out that the factory stripes and dealer installed stripes were slightly different. The factory stripes stopped at the bottom of the spoiler and the dealer installed stripes stopped at the bottom of the trunk lid. So that got me thinking. Perhaps GM is showing us both stripe packages with the cars that we have seen? Just a thought.

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

The '67-'69 stripes may look "unfinished" in the sense that they disappeared over the front edge of the hood in front, and they "slipped into the trunk" in back. But if you'll look carefully at pictures of original factory cars, the stripes were rounded off in front near the windshield (cowl area) and in back between the back glass and the trunk lid.

So there was some thought put into it. Think of it this way: the stripes begin inside the design space of the body and flow forwards and backwards outside the confines of the body to infinity.

This is the way I would prefer the stripes on the new camaro. If you have a copy of the Classic Industries Camaro catalog, page 323, you can see a pretty clear picture. Classic Instustries sells rally stripe stencil sets for the '67-'69's.
