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.

Any one else notice this?

The stripe does not reach all the way back right?

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.

I think that's they way they'll be...Wrapping vinyl around a tight edge might lead to problems with peeling. Ending short of an edge would help it last. The trunk is the same, if you look at the show pics in another thread.

That's one reason why I'm getting mine painted and then clear coated. Have you been to sleep tonight Scotty? LOL

Good catch. I probably would have not noticed until I went to wash my car for the first time or something. Doesn't annoy me too much, but of course now that it has been mentioned you just can't not see it.

Correct!

We -- nor you -- want peeling problems.

when you see it up close, it looks very much finished.

Are they going over the rear spoiler like at BJs or only on top of the spolier like at Detroit?

Thanks!!
