Getting My Stripes Redone.... Again,

This is the 3rd and hopefully last time i will be re Doing the stripes, As of now there pace car style Flat black stripes on a Gloss Black car but i decided that I didnt like the no color contrast so now im going to a Gloss Tomato/Blood red color but im torn between going Full Body Pace Car style with pin stripes or the traditional Rally Stripes.... Any Input ?
BTW im also getting the Supersport Script painted Red to replace the Camaro Side Emblems and My Brake Calipers are being Painted red as well. And a Havoc Body Kit is in the works soon as well,
Also as of now the car has no chevy Emblems but theres a small scratch were the rear emblem used to be, But its covered By vinyl so if i go with the rally stripes i would need to put the bowtie back on

I'm about to do mine and I'm going with the extended bumble bee stripes because you can see them a little more form the front and back with the lip going over the spoiler a bit. Just what I like. I was going with the full stripes till my wife told me it looked too much like a Mustang and I just couldn't have that!! LOL

Hi,
I am sure glad you decided to do this. I've seen some other members that have this so called "ghost stripes ", which is fine. I just think it's a waste....just my humble opinion. There, I got that off my chest.

I am also planning on going with the black 'bumblebee' or 'convertible' stripes.


Good luck.

BL.

Texas signs by design. There in the stafford area and they do a great job everything is cut there and they have machines so they can do anything custom that you want. Im thinking about having them do red spears along with the red stripes that have SS 6.2L cut into them. Il post my end results now i just haft to decide on my stripe pattern

Thanks for the lead.....the car looks great! So can they do ghost flames on top of factory stripes? I'm toying around with the idea I might add a second thin layer of material to get the visual I want.....

Being that this is your 3rd attempt, I think not painting is the right thing for you to do....just saying....lol.

Yea I'm getting a deal to do the vinyl and I like the flat black on black look but I'd rather have some color on the car to get peoples eyes off the dirty black car lol

Why mess with aftermarket vinyl and aftermarket colors? I'd go factory CGM rallys. A nice subtle stripe on black. Stands out a bit nicer than flat black and not as flashy as silver.

Because i went with GM befor on the stripes and they were suposed to be "Blood Red" And they turned out Carnation Pink... And these guys have machines to cut what ever logos or designs or pinstripes i could ever think of..

Couldn't have been GM stripes. Factory rally's don't come in red. I just prefer the OE's. Aftermarket colors and designs will look aftermarket in my opinion. Not designed by the same people that designed the car. The factory rally's just seem to look right to me. The colors and fit match the OE colors and design of the car.

I like the rallies that extend all the way and cut off at the end of the nose. Don't see a lot of that on fifthgens.

I think they look great but you lose the flare at the end...I want mine to end before the nose so that they contain a little more detail. My2

I like the detail at the nose too, but the other does look more like the 68.
