Couple of Questions Camaro Black, stripe/wheels

What do you guys think of the hood on the Camaro Black? I was thinking of buying another hood and painting it the same flat black and installing it. The car I ordered is the IOM with W1H interior trim. I personally think it would look cool, but that is why I am asking. I remember seeing some of the late 60's and early 70's Mopars having the flat black hood.

Also..2SS/RS, wheels, painted argent silver. Is the optional polished wheel an extra cost?

Third, The AAY stripe package..I know, I know..I have read the posts and read the thread. Are they going to look like this

OR THIS


I personally like the first better...

If the stripes are like the first, cool, If like the second pic, I think I wall delete the stripe option. Will buy a hood, paint it like the Camaro Black and balance the W1H interior out a little better.

Thoughts?

Can someone photoshop that Camaro Black hood on an IOM? Would be cool to see what it would look like.

Neither. The stripes will ook like this:


I prefer bumblebee's stripes over the convertibles as they're straight while the convertibles stripes curve in on the outward edges. I want tripes with that appearance, just with no pinstripes. If I can't find good vinyl ones I guess I'll have to shell out for paint.

Hmmm..Looks like I am going to delete the stripe option unless someone on the board can replicate the Bumblebee stripes.

I am sure would cost maybe $1000-1500k to have the Bumblebee stripes painted and clearcoated.

I would have preferred the stripes transitioning into the bumper fascia.

I am sure the reason for the Rally stripe only being on the hood is a cost/fit factor. The hood is striped off the car at the plant, that way there is no "line up" issue with the hood and nose/front.
