This was posted in another thread, however I think it's useful enough to post in the stripes thread.

This is really making me re-consider my rally stripes... I would be so pissed if my stripes ended up looking like this within a year without anyone physically messing with it. If this is natural, then no way with the stripes.

I'm betting that's the result of several stupid unsupervised kids picking at the vinyl. Whoever's children did this should be shot.

Well I have had vinyl stripes on my cars for years and none had anything like that happen to them, unless it was damaged by someone or installed badly...

this is the #1 thing i am worried about regarding the stripes... and now i'm actually considering not getting them.

would this kind of damage be covered under warranty? and is it possible to have stripes re-done?

regardless, that's annoying... i've always thought that the stripes should be added before the clearcoat while the paint is being done... then this could never happen, and would be almost as good as being painted on

I think we forget guys, these are care that have been touched and man handled by thousands of people. Most of the curious as to how the stripes are put on the car. So like everyone else, the natural thing to is to run their grubby little fingernails across them. Given enough times, you could make a dent in a piece of steel

i dunno, it doesn't seem logical to me that thousands of people picked at the same spot on the stripe... especially the one that is near the bottom/center of the rear window, that's not exactly an easy place to reach (especially for a kid)...

Solution to this for my stripe package: Send it over to Body and get the whole car clear coated. Makes them look painted, while not being painted as well as protecting them.

I win.

So you're going to PAINT over stickers? Sounds like a winner.

I wouldn't paint over the stripes because the paint will not stick to the smooth surface. I'm sure it will start peeling withing a few months time. I do install vinyl lettering and graphics on vehicles and most vinyl has a life of 5/7 years exposed to the weather. Vinyl will last a life time if installed correctly.(well a long time anyway)

I'm getting no stripes.
I think my hubby will get the stripes if he orders one
He has the 30th anniversary SS with Orange stripes, and they are fine. They were also stickers.

Sad but true, but don't bet on it being a child... Some adults do some foolish, thoughtless things at car shows.

Sadly, it goes with the territory and can be expected in some cities more than others... and no, I won't say which ones.

Most folks everywhere are decent and love cars and would never think to abuse one. Good people don't deserve to be associated with vandals just because they live in the same area.

Stipes

GM and the my dealer told me the stripes are put on after the finish clear coat, not under and that means there will be an edge. Some of the stripes are put on at the dealer.

Stripes

I know that some of the stripes are paint. When I ordered my car they called the paint shop. My stripes are black and they are paint

Forego the vinyl stripes from GM and take it to a decent body shop. To the professionals, painting stripes are no big deal and you can get the stripe design you want. You'd be surprised at how relatively inexpensive it would be too. Plus they'll be nice and glossy like Bumblebee's, not like something you stuck on the car yourself. You won't have to worry about wax build up around the edges of the darker stripes or the tendancy to peel and fade. I say scratch the GM stripes and go aftermarket paint. You may even save money too and get a much better quality finish to it. Did they put vinyl stripes on the early generations, I don't think so. Anyway, JMVHO.

Currently im interested in the orange/black rally stripes, or black/orange rally stripes. I've seen orange and grey stripes and i think black would look better, but have not seen any black/orange. Can anyone photshop black/orange or put pics of other cars with this color combo.

my dealer has already said I could have the stripes painted on instead of the stickers. They will do it for $125. Is that a good deal?

It can't be done for that. Materials alone would be half of that.

There is no way the dealer could paint stripes correctly at that price. You are talking a minimum of 5 hours labor time. The paint and clear coat will cost more than 125 unless they are using spray cans.........I would look at their work before they touch your Camaro
