Are the factory stripes painted or stickers?

ok i was under the impression that the factory stripes, or dealer installed stripes or whatever were painted on ... i just read another thread somewhere about someones factory stripes bubbling up and someone who had a hard time waxing next to the crease line which means they had sticker stripes....

i ordered 2SS rjt with black stripes and i assumed they were painted on... i make fun of people with sticker stripes cuz it looks retarded and so damn ghetto.... now im starting to panic at 2AM cuz of hte possibility that my stripes woudl be stickers...

please tell me they are not stickers and that when u order them from the factory that they are painted on

alll stripes are vynil. Black ones are Flat black and dealer installed.
CGM and WHite stripes are factory installed if the car is a 2LT or a 2SS.
All stripes are vynil. You could always get them painted
Dont panick, the flat black vynil stripes look great on RJT

For about $1200 you can have the Rally stripes painted with new clear coat on them, no edge,no polish buildup and no polish scuffing "slight chance". IMO stickers belong on lunchboxes not cars! No offence to anyone with them, I am lucky to have friends who do this for a living... And yes it will be quite some time for mine because I had a plan and now find myself second guessing every day!

The factory stripes are vinyl. But the white are glossy and the Cyber Grey ones have a metallic flake. They look great. The dealer installed black ones are flat black and look like a sticker. The factory ones look like paint.

lol off topic much. btw nascar does hit up road tracks to and make left and right turns.

for vinyl stripes they look pretty damn good. the black stripes look really weird just cause there flat black and not glossy which takes away from the glossy paint job on the car it self. imo the only colour that can pull of the black stripes is black

You know what I mean, and I especially won't mention anything about plastic stickers when I am having the Chevy drivers sign under my hood at Infineon Raceway next week!

I never mean to offend, I have been saying that since cars got vinyl stickers...

I was upset myself. Because my 68' that's going to match my new one. has painted rally stripes. And I thought because I preordered it. they would be painted on. But, lots of people told me I will love the vinyl. So, will see.

So you don't do much actual reasearch. Here is an idea:
1. Goto the dealer and get a dealer brochure.
2. Goto the Chevy website and read about the Camaro.
3. read all other threads on here.

This should get you atleast up to speed and somewhat knowledgable about the car.
