The color of the stripes, they are the only ones that will be stock options from the factory.

Other colors and stripe options (side hockey stripes etc) will be available from dealers as dealer installed options.

Are the dealer installed stripes aftermarket, or GM approved accessories?

Not exactly. They have stated that you will be able to get the Z/28 stripes (over hood and deck lid) only. The hockey stick stripes have not been identified as being optional from the factory.

Personally, I wish they had kept the Z/28 stripes for the Z/28 and offer the hockey stick stripes for the SS.

Those stripes will probably be available for any Camaro, not just SS cars.

"Stripes - heritage-inspired stripes are offered in RS style for the hood or "hockey stick" style side design"

That's from the Camaro site.

White and Cyber Gray are available as factory-options. And other colors (not specified) can be dealer-installed.

And in '69, fwiw...I don't believe any of the stripe patterns were trim-specific...I've seen pics of SS's and Z28s both with the same dual hood stripes..

Assumptions are that they will be GM Approved if done by the Dealership

I guess they call the Z/28 stripe the RS stripe? In '69, all SS cars had hockey stick stripes and all Z/28's had the dual hood/trunk stripes as standard equipment unless specifically ordered as a stripe delete car.

You will never see a real '69 Z/28 with hockey stick stripes. A lot of guys put the Z/28 stripes on their SS because they just love the look but the car never came that way from the factory.

As a diehard, I'm kind of disappointed that they did not save the Z/28 stripe for the Z/28. It was a Z/28 only option from 1967 to 1973.

While many such GM options are only available at dealers, it is important for buyers to make sure that GM did authorize the stripes for quality control. GM has high quality standards, and dealers have high sales goals. Somewhere in between, there is room for dealers to add parts that sell and GM to have trouble enforcing its standards. I've seen plenty of dealerships slap non-OEM rims, body kits, and performance parts on cars and making warranty work difficult to make the sale. It is up to every buyer to do as much research as possible to cover his or her back.

Dealer installed will definitely be stickers, but as for factory (which I'm guessing is what you are actually asking about)

Yes make sure they are genuine GM approved parts... Back a few years ago we had a dealer around here putting aftermarket Aero kits on S-10 trucks and then slapping on Factory X-treme badges and then adding $2,000 on the price for the X-treme option, no lowering kit, no fancy wheels and tires. I had priced the aero kit before it was selling for about 250 and you could get it painted for another 200... Rip off city.

They will be decals/vinyl, Painted stripes would add drastically to the prices bottom line.

Just to give you an idea, the Ford GT (no the mustang, the supercar) stripes were vinyl, with a price tag in the 6 figures..
