Sleep is for the week!

And yes, I meant that. Meaning the days that are not the weekend.

Or something.

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.

But I'm getting mine painted anyway.

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!!

I did see it on the red one, but thought to be a fluke, but now it's on the grey one too.

Just curious, are factory stripes put on with a computer ran machine or by hand? A machine would probably do it the same every time.

Either way, I still like them.

The factory stripes will look great no matter how they are done. Just don't think that the stripe stopping short of the edge is gonna be so short that it's noticeable, and if it is, then just wait til you get your first ding and it won't matter anyway.

I gotta tell ya'; I'm one picky sob, and the tiny exposed painted edge doesn't bother me at all.


I am very impressed with the decision to stop the front stripes short of the intake slot.

As a traditionalist Camaro owner, I wanted them full length like a '69, but the chosen treatment looks right on the 2010.

I like the little "grill" in the finished mail-slot as well. An aftermarket cowl-induction hood will make up for the non-functional mail-slot.


I also like the graining on the finished door panels. I want to see a pic of the fully-finished lower door panel area, as well.

Needs to be wrapped, even if it must be epoxied on the under side to keep it attached.

Check out the IOM Camaro from Montreal..has the same effect of not going to the edge on the trunk and hood

Yes I noticed this and is a major reason (along with the stripes not being long enough) why I will not be spending money on these.. GM, you need to get the quality control people in and re-do these stripes..
