Rally Stripes now to be applied at the factory

As reported on homepage.

Had not seen this posted anywhere yet but sorry in advance if it is. Our trainer came buy today to let us know that if you order rally stripes now through the end of the year the will now be applied at the factory instead of the dealership. I would assume it is the same for the hood and hockey stripe but she did not say. Also she told us that SS models will be on a 40%-60% constraint through the rest of the year. So it would seem that patience would be the order of the day for those of you still..... waiting

I would think about it if they came in gloss black. The flat, or satin just isn't doing it for me.

Flat is good. Imagine everyone freaking out when their glossy stripes started to fade.

Too many non-SS sitting at the dealers my guess. Not enough parts for fill orders?

SS part shortage is Chevy's line. Or maybe they want more V-6 cars and not so many "gas guzzlers". I want my SS!

Partial truth.... All the Rally strips can be done at the factory.

They CAN however, be ordered through a parts department and dealer installed, if you want to get them down the road (or for a little less money.....depending who you get them from) . My guess is that this is still the quicker option.

Scotty; Unrelated question. Is there any reason the Heritage grill ( or the dovetail spoiler) is taking so long to become available? Is it a supplier problem or are they saving it for a future model upgrade? I'm waiting for both with baited breath.

Hopefully the factory quality control will be better that the dealers. Note the wiggle in the center pass side thin stripe this guy got.

The assembly plant will likely have a jig that will place them correctly every single time. I doubt the will let it to free hand installation.
