Roof Stripes ?

Why is it that no one has run their stripes to include the roof??

Maybe it's been tried and found to be offensive. If my photoshop skills were better, I would try it myself. Are there any photos where someone has run the hood and trunk stripes over the roof as well? If not, anyone with some skills willing to try? Say, yellow with black stripes?? IOM with black??

Who knows, it might just look good!!

It has been done. I forget what thread it is in but I like it. It makes the stripes look finished and not like they just start and stop in the middle of nowhere. Alot of people on here dont like them though because Ford puts them on the roof so get ready to get flamed...

Stripes on the roof?? NOOOOO!!!!!!

It was discussed recently.
And a near unanimous vote was no. We, your fellow Camaro owning friends will hunt you down, take your car, remove the stripes, spread some strawberry jam and a liter of 10W-30 on 'em, and make you eat them!

Then we'll e-bay y'er car for five bucks!

Stripes on the roof is a mostly ford heritage thing, and just the hood and trunk is a GM heritage thing. See?
Bond, i got the oil, you got the jam?

Stripes on the roof is a MUSTANG heritage. Don't be a stripe poser.

Before anyone beats me to it, yes, the '97 anniversary edition had stripes on the roof.

In my opinion, the design only works having stripes on the roof if the overall shape of the car is a wedge. The most wedge-like Camaro was the 4th gen, so continuing the stripes up over the roof continues the line. If you were to do the same to the 5th gen, you'd have two different planes of stripes, which looks out of place to me.

Regardless, I don't like stripes on the roof, personally.

See the difference?

Gee.... 1st post and got booted to 'External and Internal Cosmetics Modifications'. Guess continuing factory stripes onto the roof is radical.

Saw an avitar with a VR with white stripes along the entire car and it looked nice. Just wanted to see a larger example....

Hey, diversity is good!

Diversity is good. If you want to do it, it's your car. All you have to please is yourself.

Not sure if I like it or not, which is why I asked in the first place. I was hoping someone would come up with a picture or PS one for me. Oh well...... we'll see.

I've seen a red or IOM with white stripes in a couple of avitars, but that is too small to really appreciate. Did look kinda interesting.

Thanks for the input.

i dont care if its a heritage thing or not, i think it would look better with the stripes on the roof. It's your car, do what you want with it.
