That's a big hockey stick hehe. What color are you getting for them?

If you're looking for opinions...ahem... to me the hood stripe looks best on the driver side. The hockey stick looks a bit much. These are my ideas on the hockey stick...

The first one shows the stick in black; the second one shows the edge in white so you can see what's different from the blue taped one. The part heading back towards the door is tapering and would end at the rear door edge.

Absolutely beautiful color BTW.

Looks good, I can definitely picture your idea now and all I can say is, wow!
I know were aren't voting, but I think it should go to the bottom of the cowl

No...I'd LOVE opinions on the stripes. I have decided that it WILL go down the edges of the cowl. The hockey stripes, on the other hand....that's what we are discussing. I don't want them too large, but I do want them to dip lower than what GM has...well below the turn signal. Well...basically just like you see here. Still thinking on the hockeys.

Man, I cannot believe how those exhaust guys drove your car that hard before break in........ not trying to make you feel bad, but I would have made them by me a new one...no BS. That is the worst thing to do before break in!

My car will not leave my site until broken in.

yeah...but look at those numbers! I mean...I have a feeling that they are off. But, if this Camaro is REALLY dyno'ing at 416 rear wheel HP, then NASA, we got a problem!!! Because AFTER the exhaust install, we are looking at 440hp. That means an easy 490 or so hp at the fly wheel.

Again, this is speculative since....well....this just really sounds off. SW's also thought it to be weird. But, I would NEVER give up this car! CGM #1....crazy jacked up super power engine.... ...this is just getting too good, man!

I'm over the hard driving they did. I'm good. I'll have plenty of time to baby her into the best piece of machinery ever....

I really like the longer hockey stripes and definitely like the "over the mail-slot" look way better than the stock vinyl's. You will definitely have a unique looking Camaro let alone the first Cyber Grey.

Well I know who I won't be trusting to do the exhaust on my ss when I get it. Thanks to this journal, I'll be very watchful of whose working on this car and what they do with it when I'm not babysitting.

With that nice little discrete note in the window they found on delivery... It would not surprise me! With that kind of dyno you know something is up, the guys on the line, at least a few of them knew who this was going to, and probably had an idea of what you had in store for it with it going to THR. I'm sure a couple parts from a different bin must have found their way in there!!!

Nice writeup Tag! You'll have the biggest smile on the block for a year after getting your hands on this thing!

Here are a few snaps to show my guess at your color for stripes: the first one with my style, a second version based on your longer stripe, and one with a full unbroken stripe like you have taped off.

Just my personal opinion but I think the stick should break at the turn signal light. This is also consistent with the old Camaros except they had the engine size number in the break area. The break also compliments the lower edge of the front grill opening. I like either one with the short or long bottom stick.

This car is going to be gorgeous when done.
