Unavailable black stripes?

Hi guys,

Long time lurker, first time registered and poster.

I ordered my 2LT and have been promised Sept for delivery.

I was told my order would be put in at the end of July.

Since then, the manager said that black stripes are temporary unavailable?! I see that a lot of people are doing after market here on this forum. Is this the reason why?

What's going on with GM? I've been getting nothing but the run-around while trying to purchase this puppy, now this?

I want my Bumblebee!

None of the dealer installed stripes actually come in the car. The Box is too big. Dealer is BS'ing you.

Dealer installed stripes come under separate shippment. I took delivery of the car on 7/1, dealer called me on 7/8 and said the stripes were in. Only a one week delay for me, no big deal.

I'm getting the stripes put on myself, don't want the dealer to screw it up, so I picked up the stripes and brought them home. (The box is not too big for the car, I brought them home in the box in the car) End of box on rear shelf, front of box on pass. head rest.

My stripes arrived at the dealer 1 week before the car. Most dealers bring in someone who does stripping to do it.

I thought it was black paint that was painted on at the factory! So this is just dealer installed stripe stickers? WOW! They look good but what a joke! $533 option for stickers.

I'll let the dealership know to ship the stripes at a later date if possible. Thanks guys!

When I checked my Order Workbench a while back (TPW 7/13) I noticed that my Silver Rally Stripes (Dealer Install) now showed "No Longer Avail". My Salesman is checking with the Area Manager to try and determine what's happened. I initially figured they might have discontinued the Silver stripes but perhaps it has nothing to do with the colour.

When did they say yours would be delivered? September also? Looks like a July order date. I'm going to check with my dealer at the end of the month when he's supposed to order the car for me.

I'm going to see if I can get a dealership guy to reply to this thread. I saw a few of them on this site.

I notice alot of you on here seem to be afraid to have your striping done by the dealership as apposed to factory.

FYI.. 99% of dealers use a local vehicle wrap shop to do their graphics / striping. If you're concerned, just ask the dealer who they get to do the striping.

also.. it's faster to get your striping through a local shop rather than ordering it from the factory. Just make sure they use 3M 220 scotchcal vinyl.

hope that helps!

I've been waiting for about three weeks for mine also. The dealership I bought mine at uses a graphics company to install the stripes. They do all the wraps arounds for business vehicles so they should do a good job. If they don't then they'll get peeled off and re-installed, but I won't be paying twice.

Not sure if this question is directed to me but I ordered back on May2nd. Mine is scheduled to be built sometime this week (TPW 7/13 - fingers crossed). My Sales Rep says if it does build on schedule, he hopes to see it at the dealership before the end of July. Based on some painful experiences from others on this board I realize that everything in the universe has to line up properly for that to happen....but I sure am hoping that's how it goes

Thanks Kroache! I asked you because apparently at my dealership, there was another guy who's order gets put in with me at the end of July and we'll get our cars in September (but we'll see since everybody is having trouble getting theirs).

I've literally seen NO Camaro's on the street anywhere!

What I'm wondering now is why my dealer didn't tell me that the stripes were something you put on after? You guys are all saying it gets delivered later than the car and it gets installed? So there is a choice?

Ultimate - You need to do a little reaserch on here. Stripes is a topic that has been greatly debated for some time. Hylton has an excellent thread on stripes. Search button is your friend. But here's a few tid-bits (guys - feel free to correct anything I mess up - if you know for sure it's wrong - but don't fire tomatoes).

- The stripes are vinyl
- blacks are flat black
- They are 3M, so they are good quality.
- I strongly recommend having your dealer take care of installation. They (like most) will chicken out and hire a professional to install them (mine did). BUT, IF they screw them up, their problem, not yours. And, if you order the stripes with the car (i.e. not just over the parts counter) then installation is included.
- ONLY white and cyber gray stripes are factory installed and ONLY on the 2LTs and 2SS's (that doesn't make sense - don't ask why)
- Proper installation of rear deck lid stripes (with a spoiler) requires removal of the spoiler. MAKE SURE that you check they adequately retightened the spoiler after reinstalation (but not over tightened).
- The stripes come in a big flat box. Will it fit in the car? probably yes as someone has said. Would it fit in such a way that they would ship them in the car? no.
- The Cdn price for the GM stripes is a bit pricy. But to have a quality shop install them using quality (vinyl) material, you're going to be in the same neighbourhood (maybe save $100 - unless you "know" somebody - remember, I said quality)
- Also on the price, I too wanted painted. I looked into that. Down the road I may get them painted (always the option to go vinyl to paint - not so much the other way around). Don't underestimate the cost of painted stripes. It is expensive. Again, for quality work, to properly reclear the entire panels, you're talking 3-4x the price of vinyl.

Lots of people will debate my points above re: price. But again, I'm talking about top quality workmanship and materials, WITHOUT the "I know a guy..." factor.

Take that for what you will - it's just my opinion - oh, and if you look hard enough you'll find posts by me stating that I would never want flat black vinyl stripes. Now that I have them, I wouldn't have anything else.

My white stripes (dealer install option), arrived no more than 2 days after my car, and was put on by an outside bodyshop stripe expert, because the dealer guys wouldn't touch it. I am very pleased with the application done on mine.

I ordered my camaro on Jan.31 and picked her up on 6/26 w/ no stripes. I had to wait for two weeks. I kept calling the parts department my self and they told me the day they came in and made a app. w/ some guy they use to install them and he did a great job. I also thought they would be painted on and done at the factory. Oh, I paid $470 for my stripes

My "flat" black stripes from GM aren't so flat in the sun. Almost look like they have some metallic to them. Anyone else think so?

Notice the hockey stick...



Different angle. They're for sure black, not CGM.

Another stupid question but I don't know how to search for this. I've seen some stripes that extend all the way to the VERY front of the car. So it has to break and then there are two more small stripes that extend. What do you guys feel about that? Is that a dealership purchased stripe package or aftermarket?

I don't think you can those from the dealership. Check out this link in the Wiki. There's several stripe otpions there.

Dealers don't chicken out.. as I said before, 99% of dealers have a local graphics shop they trust to do all installations (i know, i used to work for one)

and #2.. factory stripes aren't installed in the factory, they're actually installed down the road from where I used to work at a subcontracted business. The business takes care of that + all the police stripes, ambulance etc.

Your car looks good, and I do notice the slight sparkle when the sun hits it.
