Boo! Should have been glossy GM!!

Well, that will knock $470 off my total purchase price, thanks for the information Embalmer.

Hey txturbo - how much for glossy black rally stripes?

Wow that really sucks. Flat black will look terrible on my Rally Yellow. Glossy would have looked amazing.

Edit: Can you also tell us how flush the stripes are with the car or does it look/feel like you have a giant sticker on?

Honestly....i'm not sure any of them will look good. If I had to pick one I would say probably SIM but yikes....that is soo disappointing. All of the other stripes are glossy right?

Black and that's the silly thing - Chevrolet won't let you order flat black stripes on a black car. Anyone remember how popular the black 85-86 Mustang GT's were with the big flat black hood stripe?

I guess my next best option is painted stripes in Black Granite Metallic with a nice shiny clear coat over it. For now, I'll live with unadorned Victory Red for a while and then decide which direction to go...

I think I will be one of the few that like the flat color on silver...going to have them installed since the car is already built and on the way.

If I don't like them I'll have them removed...got to see what it looks like!!

Well, it's going to look quite a bit like this, except that it will be a bit wider and have a silver stripe up the middle.

I've sent a note over to our Accessories guy -- because I think they're semi-gloss -- but I'll let you know what I find out.........

Fbod,

I just had them put on my car - dealer installed... and the ones I got are definitely flat..

With that said... they don't look nearly as bad as I thought they would..

There were some "complications" though.... I'll post the pictures and the details in the Media forum later tonight....

I'm still confident they'll look sexy on my CGM. If not, I'll find a way to put them on my wife's Yaris.

I think the flat black stripes will look crappy on yellow, orange, red and blue cars, and be OK looking to some people on black, gray and silver cars.

Well, at least that would take care of the debate about stripe length...

You live in Texas. Do you live near Txturbo? Get him to apply them for you. He's been doing it for years.

This has been a concern since the day we found out that not all stripes would be factory installed.
