I'm always a fan of white stripes, black or blue also wouldn't look bad in my opinion.

I have seen black and it is hard to tell unless you are close to it. I was thinking of putting on silver.

CGM is a hard color to make stripes really pop but I would say "gloss" black stripes.

I like white. Great contrast to the darker color.

I put silver on my CGM. I thought about black but was concerned that they couldn't be seen unless up close.

I think orange looks great on CGM.

I saw a picture of a lot full of Camaro's, probably at Oshawa, and there was a cgm with white stripes. It looked fantastic!

I'd go with RJT if your thinking of painting them on. I love my RJT with CGM painted stripes.

Metallic silver

I have a CGM and I originally did the factory black hockey and hood stripes, but you couldn't tell it had stripes unless you were next to the car.




So I decided to pinstripe the edge of the stripes with silver. It made it more visable, but I was worried it would start to lift from washing and waxing.




My next decision was to redo all the stripes in Silver. Since I was doing them myself, I extended the hood stripe over the rear edge of the hood and did the same with the trunk lid. GM cut them too short and the stripe doesnt wrap the edge.

Orange stripes only look good if you have the orange interior.
