Just wondering about the durability of the vinyl? Will it peel? How about when you wax your car .. any issues?

thanks,
Crowley

I remember my friend telling me he power washed the car and the vinyl just peeled off. I laughed at it at first, but then I started to wonder..... What about the Camaro ?

good question however I never power wash my car, I always hand wash it, but still would be nice to know.

yea they are vinyl, you can tell cause of the bottom right hand corner of the stripes are raised a bit.
and as for power washing, hell if i know. i don't think they would but i don't power wash my cars for my parents like that, i use the hose, a couple buckets of car wash mixed with water. a couple micro fiber cloths. some wax. etc. etc.

That's what I want to know. I'm sure they'll look great when we first buy the car, but what about five years later?

Stig. That was just the orange vert. Nothing new...sorry.

But sure, I have more.

Vinyl shouldn't peel....and I've heard it's stayed on cars for 20+ years no problem. I honestly don't think the vinyl will be a problem at all. GM wouldn't want their cars looking like crap out on the roads in 5 years... B A D B U S I N E S S.

I made my own stripes and put them on my 4th gen. I drive it through an automatic car wash every week. They don't peel and the vinyl is good for at least 7 years with no care. They make protectant you can apply just like for paint and you can also wax it.

Is it possible to spray a layer of clear coat over the car and cover the stripes to protect them?

if i was going to spray cler coat over it i would just as well get them painted on cause you never know what dust particles might get caught in the clear coat or something.

I honestly don't know for fact if they are vinyl or paint. I thought they were painted too...until I saw the ridge. From my knowledge, only if there were a few coats of paint, would there be a ridge as pronounced (which wasn't that bad...don't get me wrong)...as the ridge from the vert stripes.

The ridge (which wasn't that bad) made it look like vinyl....But Hell yeah!...they look GREAT!!!...and appear so nice that they are paint.

This is a good question for Scott....
