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

This only applies to the rally stripes.

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.

I wish this was before I picked up my car...

The dealer ripped the front passenger stripe about 1" and fingernail gouged the front driver side stripe. They're going to replace them, but they still haven't gotten them in yet and I've had the car for over a month.

They keep throwing in wrench's! Arrgh! Now I need to contact Eric with Classic Chevrolet again. I've ordered a dove tail and was going to have that area done custom to make sure the stripe reached the top of the dove tail. No sense in the factory striping the stock spoiler if I'm going to turn around and take it off and sell it on eBay. I was planning on having my dove tail installed before the striping at the dealership!!! Again, no point in re-doing at the dealership what the factory just did. I only have a few days before GM is supposed to accept my order so I better get this straightened out and get the stripes removed from my order and have them ordered at the dealership instead. I imagine others are in the same boat as me here.

This is why we didn't get stripes over the mail slot, I'll bet. Can you imagine dealers being able to apply a multi-piece design?! You seen some of the hockey stripes?

Keep in mind, doing them at the factory adds a little more time...

From the "mainpage" ;

Until now, rally stripes had been installed at the dealership, but, perhaps due to poor or inconsistent installation by dealers, the stripes will now be factory installed.


This is incorrect. If you remember WAY BACK to one of my IDL threads...January - March, it was mentioned THEN, that because of added capacity at the plant, the plant staff wanted to do all the stripes at the factory.


The only thing I hope for is that the cars get a much faster turnaround for the factory stripes. I personally would rather get the car to the dealership after it's built, and have them put on in my schedule. JMO.

This is JohnnyCamaro AKA John Cox from Chevy Accessories. I wanted to tell you a little about the grille and spoiler. The grille is expected to be ready for sale in the early 4th quarter. As for the dovetail spoiler, we showed it as a concept extremely early at SEMA to gauge interest. Current timing of this product is mid next year.

I ordered the complete white stripes package. Car arrived without. I cancelled the order, but dealer refused to lower the price. Then deducted a portion. I was about to walk out stating I was going to contact GM. The sales manager conceded, and dropped the charge.

Anyone describe the stripes? Are they painted or glued on?

Another surprise...It cost me $2495 to extend the warranty to reverse the following paragraph:

2010 Chevrolet Limited Warranty And Owner Assistance Information

Page 5.

Exclusions: Excluded from the powertrain coverage are sensors, wiring, connectors, engine radiator, cooling hoses, cooling and heater core. Coverage on the engine cooling system begins in the inlet of the water pump and ends with the thermostat housing and/or outlet that attaches to the return hose. Also excluded is the entire pressurized fuel system (in-tank fuel pump, pressure lines, fuel rail(s), regulator, injectors and return line) as well as the Engine/Powertrain Control Module and/or module programming.

I heard that the SS's are selling too well, and it's screwing up the cafe regs. Need to sell more V6's to balance things out.

I opted for a more subtle dove tail from Next Level Performance. Painted to match for under $500.

Looks like I'll be having the dealership do my stripes!!!

Our IBM 2SS Camaro, built back in July, and delivered mid-August, had factory installed rally stripes. when we ordered it, in early June, you could opt for either way- factory or dealer installed. the factory option had them trucked to a location in nearby Whitby, ON, and then sent back to Oshawa the next day, to await rail transport to the dealer. While tracking the car, it threw me off to see it leave Oshawa by truck, after being posted with status 42, only to see it back to 4B awaiting rail shipment the next day, which is how I then looked up to find the above info.
