Getting Painted Stripes!!!!!!!!!

OK, So I am going to be without my Camaro for two weeks and getting stripes painted on. I am nervous on how they will turn out. I never had a car that I would paint stripes on. Hope it turns out good. Oh and I am getting it done while I go home to visit family 2000 miles away. I will put pictures up when I get her back.

2 weeks, i am definately doing custom vinyl first. If I ever get my car, being without it for a day to do exhaust and tune is bad enough couldn't stand it for any longer.

Trust me I already miss it. I miss family more though, I have not seen them in a year. I thought of vinyl but I said F it. I wanted it to stand out. I have Victory Red and getting the Rally Striped down to the front fast the hood and down the back hood and bumper. The color is a pearl white cream. So I am not worried that it will not match.

Superb choice in going with paint, it is sooo well worth the extra money and time away from your Camaro. All of your anxiety and nerves will be put to rest when you see the polished luster, and feel the 'smooth as glass' clearcoat finish blanketing your completed masterpiece. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Sounds like a great color combo; can't wait to see it, and congrats!

Smart to go with paint IMO. My 67 had a nose stripe - bumble bee and I loved it.

Looks good, although I would have gone the whole way down on the front if you did on the back.

But still looks awesome!!!

How much does painted stripes cost? Just a basic estimate is fine.

I would have went down the front, but I have that STUPID license plate on there. I thought that it wouldn't look right.

I paid 1250 for mine. That was the price I told the shop. They called me half-way during the work and said that the actual cost would have been around $2600. I also live in Maine so the prices might be more. Less shops around here.
