Cool Aftermarket Graphics & Stripes Options

Don't see your New Camaro being in either Cyber Grey or White Stripes! .. Not sure if the other colours suit either! Well, here's a site that may have the answers you've been looking for !
http://www.autotrimdesign.net/items_10316.html
There should be some options soon for the New Camaro as they've just started postings for the Challenger. Hundreds of colours to choose from and pre-cut decals make for easy allignments and installations. I'm sure if GM doesn't offer you the colour you desire, these guy will!

Don't put flames on your Camaro. That goes for everyone. Otherwise, there are some great options here.

Flames are way too retro even for me! Not my style at all! For me, I'm just looking at different colour combs when they star producing factory stripe pakages. Still want Silver Stripe and Hockey stickers on my Imperial Blue 2LT / RS .. something GM does't seem to offer, but might if this friday's consumer list is different.

http://www.ridergraphix.com/ has all of the best Challenger decals and they hit the car up in about a month of its release. They mostly have Mopars but they make graphics for the Mustang and Silverado too, so hopefully they'll hit the Camaro up.

We are getting ready to list Camaro Graphics. We have been working with 3D Computer models from the actual GM CAD files to design and develop new stripes for a perfect fit. Because we desire to be the best, we will not release anything until they are test fit on a car personally.

When they are ready, they will be available here... http://www.ridergraphix.com/Camaro.html

We just added the side vent inserts as a start. We should be adding some Hockey Stick options and the Hood "Spears" for the side of the Hood scoop shortly too. I will be test fitting some patterns on a Camaro tomorrow.

You can see all of our Camaro options here.... http://www.ridergraphix.com/Camaro.html We will be adding options as they are ready.

We send detailed instructions with every order. Most of our customers do their own install and those that do not, go to a local Auto Body Shop or Window Tint shop to have them installed.

I really like the 68 SS style graphics in the link thats what my Green 68 has and if they made a green 2010 I would most likely get it with the same striping but they don't! So Yellow for the car and still undecided on striping.

I'm really liking those side vent inserts...really makes them stand out. Plus they're small enough anyone can install them. Thanks, autoguy!

Hahaaaaa! Venom, there's our Hockey Sticks right there! I can't decide if I want the one with the the text inside the stripe or outside next to the marker light...

Cannot WAIT to see them fitted on a real car. I knew RiderGraphix would come through.

I test fit a paper template on a car yesterday. They fit perfect.

One thing we did differently is that we made them in two pieces only. A front piece and a door piece. It installs in one piece on the front bumper cover and fender. This way, there is not a body color line running up the middle of the main stripe section. Once it is installed, it can be formed into the joint between the bumper and fender, then a relief cut can be made so the decal does not tear. You might see a very faint line at a certain angle, but it is nowhere near as noticeable as the factory stripes.

We do all of our Challenger stripe this way and have had great results and a better final outcome.

We adjusted the lower front of the stripe to be parallel with the marker light and refit it since these pics were taken.

Oh, and even though I'm not interested in them, I can't help but ask... do you guys plan on making elongated Rally stripes like how the gentlemen has been doing on his yellow car? The thread is in this board somewhere. If you do, I'd really love to know how you'd pull off accommodating that pesky mailslot! That stumps me!

Awesome stuff. I definitely like how it's a lot bolder than the GM offering. The stripe gets a little too thin towards the back with the GM hockey stick.

By the way, not that I'm interested in them but I can't help but ask... what do you guys have planned for elongated rally stripes? Like what the gentlemen in the other thread is doing with his yellow car. I'm stumped as to how you mold the vinyl around that pesky mailslot!

Definitely! And I can't decide on the text either! Haha!

I must confess... I may go for the gill vinyl, too...
