That is what this entire thread is about. Rally stripes are flat black. I am going to have to cancel mine because flat black won't last here in AZ. The sun will DESTROY them.

Wait.... they're shiny... but flat.... they're flat... but have matallic in them. What kind of parallel paradox twilight zone universe are we in here? Flat, semi gloss or gloss is what I want to know.

Doesn't matter really I guess. I'm stuck with buying them now. I won't have them installed but I'll be looking for other options. I think flat (or something like flat) will look good on black, white, silver, maybe even RJT, but not on IOM. Personal preference I guess. Waiting for those pictures...

Those are CGM stripes not black. CGM is glossy.

You can't. The decals are covered in a film that you can't remove until the stripes on put on the car or you ruin the decals.

This sucks, I ordered 2SS/RS IOM with black rally stripes. Changing tomorrow to either CGM stripes or having them painted on. When having them painted on do the sand down the original paint or can they airbrush the stripes over the existing clearcoat? Would hate to mess with the paint.

My solution: i really wanted black stripes so what i might do is get two black stripes on the fenders, go aftermarket, or paint them i laready have a guy who can do it (would you give him the dimensions for the stripes?)

I honestly think I'm going to be good with them!

Flat looks great on cars and goes with the latest look of muscle cars stripes/graphics.

I agree... I personally am not interested in stripes just yet.. Although the hockey stripes do look cool.... But if i were getting stripes right away i would have them painted anyways so that everything is smooth and you don't have a sticker on there. Not to mention when cleaning and waxing you car you don't have to worry about avoiding the sticker. Just my two cents

Yes you can paint directly over the clearcoat but they ill have to sand the area first with a fine grit sandpaper or else your painted stripes will be flaking off a year later. Not enough to sand through the clearcoat however.

Well someone posted something similar, but look at Hendrick's #2. that doesn't look flat to me at all. Why wouldn't all the other SIMs with black stripes be the same? I configured my car based on his...

There is a IOM at my dealer and they are installing black rally stripes by the weekend. (so they said) Worst case scenario, if no one has pics of a IOM with black rally stripes I will post the pics over the weekend. I ordered black rally stripes too but cancelled them because they were flat but I guess I'll see this weekend.

Well I guess that's where I'm confused. I will have to call my dealer and confirm, but in all of my paperwork and when I configured the car online the stripes say Black, not CGM.

Does that mean I'm getting flat Black? Can I change them to CGM? People have stated they just want to remove their stripes, but why not go from Black to CGM. I didn't even know they weren't Black, lol.

CGM can be ordered and are applied/painted at the factory. Black appear less glossed and are dealer installed. If it came with stripes from the factory it CANT be black. And for what its worth, I saw CGM in person at the Austin show and its definately not blackish or very dark. Really depends on the lighting, but don't expect a washed-out black.
