I come from the world of Mopar so I am used to flat black everything. I think they are going to look cool. If they dont work save them un installed and go with aftermarket gloss black. That way they are on the window sticker and you still have them. If you ever sell and someone is big into original he just peels the gloss ones and adds the flat.

I was wondering about going to CGM stripes myself. However, I don't think CGM on Victory Red would look right. I think it has be a non metallic stripe kit on the Victory Red. I think because IOM is metallic the CGM stripes will look good on that color. Maybe the flat wouldn’t be so bad on Victory Red. I need to see pictures.

I'm so upset. My guy rebuilding my 68' just ask me today about putting flat black stripes on my car. And I told him no. I hate flat black and it needs to match my 2010. And now I find out that it's getting flat black stripes

If you want your car to be like Rick Hendrick's number 2 car, just call the dealer and ask him to change your stripes from VZG to B7W. As stated earlier, they will be factory installed so they will show up at the dealership with the stripes already on it.

I always like the gray with black rallys. Thats why I ordered the SIM. I was always going back and forth with the cgm/black rallys. cgm came factory thats why I went cgm, I didnt trust the dealer to do the black. Now that the black is FLAT I'm thrilled with cgm. flat black would be a bummer in FL.

More like stripes Under MSRP... I don't know how many will be willing to pay our Canadian "highway robbery" prices (unless a fellow Canadian of course). I'm going to have my dealer contact the other Camaro pre-order customers to see if one is willing to buy them / cancel their black stripes and buy mine.

And to think... I came so close to changing my stripes to CGM b/c of the whole factory vs. dealer thing. But I just couldn't have the same stripes as TJ91

Maybe I'll have a single green stripe put on the roof and it can look like a giant pumpkin... a pumpkin that does 150MPH!!
