Rally stripe price?

I got my car without the stripes. Looking to have them added and a local shop wants $499?!! Does that sound right to others who have had it done? I don't want to do something like that myself but that seems awfully high for what it is.

Isn't it like $470 if it were added at the factory?? For a bit more, you could probably have them painted on giving a better look and better durability. Just my .02

I just received stripes from revomotors, here on the forum. Very good quality with the same OEM appearance. And it cost me a 1/3 of the factory price.

I had mine put on at a local shop and paid $300. Stripes over lap at the end of hood and trunk lid. Also stripes go over spoiler.

Mine didn't come with stripes but I negotiated with the dealer to put them on for $250. I regret doing that because I am having them peeled off and painted for $1500 soon.

Thanks for the input. $500 is just to high for what it is. Found a shop that will do it for $300 parts and labor or $150 if I supply the vinyl.

Have a dealer put on the OEM rallys. Make sure to ask if the person who is putting them on, has done many sets.

If you have a dealer put them on, they are warranted with the car 3/36.

The nice thing about vinyl is you can always pull it back off. With paint, once your sanding your committed.

The CGM OE rallys look great on SIM.

I would think painted do look better and last longer, but....


I currently have the 'Rally Racing' stripes. I really don't like them because I want them to extend further down the hood and wrap around the spoiler.

For this reason, I just purchased a set of 'bumblebee' vinyl stripes on ebay for around $150.

I just need to have them installed, and hopefully it will be around $100 for install.

The reason I am not painting them on is because I might 'repaint' the entire car some time in the future ( 3+ years) and so I don't want to waste my money. I do, however, want that great look that the stripes give it, now.


thanks,

BL.

I'm gonna stick with the vinyl. And yes the matte black looks great on the SIM! I actually like the size and length of the rally stripe I don't want them to extend any further.
Thanks for the input everyone. I'm actually sitting in shop while my windows are getting tinted now. Heck of a deal from what I've seen. $125 for ceramic tint with lifetime warrenty from the most reputable place in Tulsa from what I've been told. Pics will be posted when complete!

The matte ones have had issues with fading and showing chalky white in places. Just a heads up.

Especially the wax.

The 'wash' is not a big issue as long as you dry your car as soon as your done washing it. It's the waxing of the stripes that's a 'no no', from what I've been told.

It's obviously more money, but I say pony up the extra money for paint. If you ever see paint vs vinyl side-by-side on two Camaros, you'll understand why.

Agreed! I never realized how sweet painted stripes look until i saw one camaro with them and I rubbed my finger on them. If you paint them, clear coating the entire hood and trunk lid over the stripes is a must.
