Fbodfather HELP definitive answer on REAR spoiler stripes?

Will the stripes be over the spoiler? Or, to the back before the spoiler? On the Silver Barrett Jackson car it goes down the spoiler, but on the Red one from NAIAS, and the Inferno Orange from auto show, it goes to the back and stops at the spoiler.

What will we be getting?

Fbodfather HELP definitive answer on REAR stripes?

Can we get the definitive answer on how the rear rally stripes will be done? Over the spoiler or stopping on top?

my GUESS is the dealer stripes will just be in the lid, the factory will be over the spoiler.

vehicles in Montreal and Detroit are correct -- silver car at Barrett-Jackson is not.

That's what I figured. One more reason to get my stripes painted on.

Worse news for me than the short hood stripes. The rear deck stripes not going over the spoiler is just not acceptible. Now I have to rethink the entire stripe issue. Bummer!!!!

I prefer over the spoiler in the back too, but this is a clean, modern look.

I'm fine with it.



I didn't think I would like the shorter stripes out front, but I do, they look right with the mail slot.

I plan on having my stripes painted on for several reasons. Most importantly is that when I saw the Barrett-Jackson car the other day the stripes on the hood do not go all the way to the edge of the hood. There is about a 1/16th to 1/8th inch gap where the hood meets the windsheild that will drive me crazy. Not sure what painted stripes will cost but I think they are the way to go from what I have seen.

well that sucks. I was going to add stripes to my order this week after seeing the stripes in Scottsdale over the weekend. I guess I might have to reconsider. Either way I'm just glad to hear a final verdict because I'd rather fbodfather be honest or we would all be dissapointed recieving something we didn't want.

thanks!

I honestly think it would look like ass to have the stripes go over the short spoiler. if they were not continuing all the way down the back of the car. clean rear end vs 2 stripes going 2" in the back????

ill keep the clean rear.

EDIT: Spike. You are completely and utterly correct on this one.

And to show my total agreement with you, I will quote myself so I don't have to type it again:

I think the cars in Detroit and Montreal look great, especially the VR. I can't wait to get mine with the factory installed stripes. I am not sure why people can't be pleased with the package that GM has given us. It isn't SUPPOSED to be just like a 1969, or a 1974, etc. It is supposed to be a 2010, aware of its heritage, but reinventing itself.

I paid $1,000 to have the stripes painted on my 4th gen. That was with the clear coat only covering the stripes. It looks very good. It would have been $1,800 to completely re-clear every panel the stripes touched. With my 5th gen, I'm going all out, no expense spared.

If that's the case, I'm very disappointed and would have my stripes done aftermarket, I really don't like the way they look stopping on top of the spoiler. That's about the only thing I've really been disappointed with on the 2010 Camaro.
