Vinyl Stripes do NOT fit the car correctly.

Take a look at the stipes on the hood. They do not seem to reach all the way to the back near the windshield.

You can notice this very clearly on both the silver AND red camaros.

Thanks zebra.

The stripe does not reach all the way back right?

Let's hope the month hold-back will fix this up no problem.

glare/reflection......


GM would be insane to put the stripes on show cars like that and not have them complete......


"oh gee did you put those stripes on yet?"

"yeah i did but they were a quarter of an inch short"

"no big deal. the press scrutinizing this car will NEVER notice a huge oversight like that."


sorry but i dont think so

Headpunter, you must be right. Yep, on BOTH cars on the SAME spot with DIFFERENT cameras and DIFFERENT locations. Of course thats "glare/reflection", how could I be so stupid. Thanks for clearing that up, I feel much better.

/facepalm, upon zooming in to gigantic pixel block mode, i can see red pixels at the back of the hood

i concede, i was wrong


i think that is mostly from someone installing the stripes from the front end of the hood back instead of doing it from the back forwards. Should be easily remedied. makes me sad that they didnt catch it sooner.

It won't matter to me but I think Headpunter is correct. It is the angle. I'm going to get mine painted on with a nice clear coat or two on top.
