i do like the BB stripes that go over the mail slot but i would have to see what the production stripes look first to judge

I'm still deciding what color to get so stripes is not my first priority.

off topic: thank you for not calling it a hood scoop

+1. I'd like my stripes to extend all the way the the end of the nose like on the 1st gens, but with no pinstriping.

IMO stripes shouldn't go past the front edge of the hood or rear decklid.

But I'm a big stripe hater in general anyway...

I agree, it looks unfinished. It almost makes the car look like it was fully striped, the driver rearended somebody and had the car fixed but was too cheap to put the stripes back on. Between the fact that they stop at the hood, cost almost $500, and that they are vinyl, I plan on having mine painted on. A friend of mine works in the body shop at a Chevy dealer and said he could paint them on for $400.

It's been shown... to lazy to look for the pics but it was on the Saving GM special. It's possible that could've change by now, but unlikely as that stripe setup is easier to install. You guys have got to remember that stripes that go past the mailslot should go IN also... otherwise it'll look a bit strange with black stripes surrounding a yellow filled hole. No prob for me though... BLACK ON BLACK BABY!

Yes, That is the hockey stripe.

If I remember all Camaros have always had the racing stripes past the hood



although the stripes aren't 100% correct. It's only from the width. but they go past the hood.

Yea, but this is the first Camaro that comes stock with a slot to mail off your car note.

I agree. let's keep it like the concept, GM..... Keep it like the concept......
I'm gonna get a summit white V6 convertible and get Hugger Orange stripes custom painted on.

It is already known that none of the factory or dealer stripes will cover the roof or go past the front of the hood.

If the stripes wind up not going past the front of the hood, I don't think it will look too bad if they finish the ends like this:

I agree, it would be hard to get the stipes to look good around the mail slot, unless it's an LS/LT.
