I was told, by local dealer that on the orange 2SS the white rally stripes had to be a dealer installed thing. Was I lied to??? Did they not order it the way I told them to? ***just an opinion*** I think the black Camaro would look great with the matte black rally stripes. anyone doing that? R6P folks have waited for long enough GM!!! Build early orders before any new dealer orders regardless of allocation. Stop treating your most loyal customers so unfairly!!!

Well I wouldn't say he was lying, perhaps ill informed. I will say he is wrong and any 2LT or 2SS can get "factory" installed white or grey rally stripes.

If this is true , why dose the build your own site at chev.com show no white or cgm rally stripes for 2LT or the 2SS , white and cgm only show up on the LS , 1LT , and 1SS not on 2SS which I ordered and had to go with silver because my dealer told me white has been discontinued on the 2SS. And on the site you can get 3 colors in the hockey strpes . Am confussed and frustrated.

Most dealers don't know their ass from a hole in the ground about what you can order and what you can't.

If you were to spray a clear coat over the flat black ralley stripes, would they appear to be a gloss black finish? TIA!

Nevermind about that Chevy site - it's just a sales tool that seems to be out of date. If you REALLY want to know what you can and can't order with your Camaro, go to your dealer and attempt to order it through their workbook ordering system - if you ordered a 2LT or 2SS, you will be able to order the RPO CGM or white rally stripes. Please remember that LS, 1LT and 1SS cars cannot get factory installed stripes.

Ask your paint mixer to put a flatening agent in the clear coat.

Above about says it all. If your dealer had mistakenly selected LS, 1LT or 1SS as the model, factory stripes would not show up on his screen.

Seriously, go over to your dealer and ask him to open your order in Workbook. Look for the RPO number, not the LPO number. The option is not in the same spot as the dealer installed stripes.

He, (and everyone else associated with GM) should be licking your boots. GM is going to announce the initial round of dealership closures. He should be thankfull he still has a job! Make sure you are watching the oder entry screen when he is doing his updating.

Don't know if it was mentioned but here is a warning on stripes. The '97 camaro came with stripes but these were not available within just a few years. Of course I wish I would have ordered a set then because of chips and other issues. The aftermarket ones you buy may not be the same size or color. So, buy at least an extra front set before it's too late.

I would love to get Flat Black stripes on my Black 2SS!

Anyone else think this would look killer? Yes, I know the colors are too close, but WTF right?

Check out some of the Chargers and Challengers in our Photo Gallery. http://www.ridergraphix.com/customers/

We have a lot of customers using Flat Black on Black.

Here is one example of flat black on black...

I am begging for someone to do it and post a pic on here. It would look incredible, especially with a zaino job on the paint to enhance the flatness of the stripes.

Remember how popular the 85-86 Mustang GT was? They all came with a flat black hood stripe and the most popular car color? Black!
