Dealer Installed Stripes

Went to a Camaro unveiling in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. and saw the rally stripes the dealer installed on a red SS. The stripes had bubbles and creases in them (scary job). BE AWARE this place does not know how to do this!!

The things is, if you go with the dealer ones they are under warranty and have to redo them till they get it right. The warranty last 3 years. The ones you buy from GM on your own I believe they do not replace them if the installer messed up. I also believe they are limited to a 1 year warranty.

Yep! So are mine! My dealer said "we don't have anyone that is trained to put the stripes on". The dealers are going to have to fix many of these.

If you are installing them outside the dealer, I would say have the installer make them for you. This way they can re-cut if they have issues!

I'm having mine scanned first, if the dealer messes them up, they gotta replace them til it's right, but I figure I'd have a spare set, plus I want to compare the flat factory ones to shiney ones.

Mine is going to be the guinea pig for the dealer. I trust them. Reputable dealer, warranted and my guy is RPO Z28. He said he will prob do it. I trust him. Spent a good hour at dealership talking to him yesterday. My order is being pulled on the 20th.

My thought was that getting as much done at the "factory" as possible would ultimately bring the most value 25 years from now... I am a stock kinda guy, so if it's not an option for the car then I won't have it on my Baby. I am adding the cold-air intake and the catback exhaust, which are being done at the dealer, but everything else happens north of the border.

I told my son the car would be his in 30 years or in my will, perish the thought, but only on the condition the car never be sold and never be altered. Pure stock!

We will have to do a step by step photo essay.

Yikes! The pressure!

Fine by me. Nothing like a little pressure. Makes it all worth it though.

Some bubbles and creases will come out with the sun. This is one of the reasons I worry about getting a set on our CGM.

Gm cant be offering these if they dont have confience in putting them on corretly. I mean these things have been on cars for years. Will there be ones that are messed up and the dealer has to fix, yes. but for the majority im sure they will be fine.

I have been putting stripes on for years and the camaro factory stripe is one of the easiest set I have put on in years. They may look intimidating on the hood but are really easy to put on. Make sure that you get the GM factory stripe and not something else, the reason is the factory stripe comes with a rubber outer cover and that is what makes it easy to install over the paper aftermarket stripe. I have already put on 2 sets on and had them done in less than 30 minutes. They are put on with baby shampoo and water. When you are done they will need to dry so there will be some water that will need to dry. Go and ask if they have done this kind of thing before you allow someone to do this.

I don't think so! If it is the same material they use on the Z71 I have not had a problem on any of mine.

Well, I called the stripe company the GM is using... they are based on Whitby. Good news - and I got this from the guy in charge of putting the stripes on the Camaro's - they are all caught up and are not causing any delays as a result of applying the stripes. For instance, he looked up my VIN - stripes were completed the day after they got the car... arrived with them on 4/22, completed 4/23 and still sitting there.

Bad news - he still has a ton of cars (mine included!) sitting there on his lot.. completed.. and ready to go... just waiting for transportation! Mine has been there, waiting, since 4/23. He went on to mention that he's sent the information multiple times to the shipping/transportation company... each day he thinks the trucks will come... each day, they don't.

What can we do about this?? fbodFather - is it typical for the transportation provider to not pickup ready/waiting vehicles?
