Besides, he wouldn't dare show his face around here if he screwed up the stripes.

Txturbo - no pressure at all, is there?

Have we got any official word on if the vinyl stripes will be cleared over? I remember talk before about how they are usually applied by a seperate company after it's painted in a seperate area, so is it safe to say they for sure won't be cleared over?

EDIT: Also, at the beginning of the thread it says it's ok to wax over them but in other threads people have stated you don't want to wax over them. Anyone have info to back up either viewpoint?

I think it is safe to say that the stripes WON'T be clear coated over. Your statement is consistent with what I have heard (regarding the stripes being applied in a separate building AFTER the car is completely built).

Txturbo says that clearing over vinyl stripes is fine. No, GM will not be doing this as they never have on any Camaro that has received vinyl stripes since 1974. I have waxed many vinyl stripes in the past with no problems.

Rodrunner, did you see the pics of the Barrett-Jackson SS/RS? Check the last pic in the OP - the rear stripes go over the spoiler.

Stripes stopping on the spoiler. Well, I'd rather if they just continued to the bottom edge of the spoiler, but I think I can live with those.

i was reading on the thread about keeping cars shined up that you should not wax over the vinyl but I think that if someone has and has had no problems, then it might just be up to the owners obsession with keeping the car as safe as possible during cleaning.

The trick is to use a product that does not have any abrasives in it.

No, the hood stripes will look like those on the VR Camaro here http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11902 and the SIM car here http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11908

The rear deck stripes may or may not go over the spoiler as on the SIM car, Hylton is awaiting final word on that from GM.

^ disappointing. At least buyers can order the rally stripe package as an LPO and then get the dealer to install them over the spoiler.

This news has ruined my day. I'm at a total loss right now as to what to do. If it were a matter of installation difficulty like around the mailslot, I could understand, but there is no good reason for this decision except bad taste. Hylton, what makes you think there will be enough vinyl supplied for the dealer to be able to go over the spoiler?

Hmm, I'm thinking I may go for the blade spoiler after all and have so custom stripes put on. I was gonna go with the standard SS spoiler and factory stripes for convenience, but if they're not going over the spoiler...

First let me say that I appreciate the fact that people have their opinions and are passionate about the stripes. My problem is that I just can't understand why this is such a deal-breaker for everyone. Really no need to explain to me because I won't get it. I think the cars in Detroit and Montreal look great, especially the VR. I can't wait to get mine with the factory installed stripes. I am not sure why people can't be pleased with the package that GM has given us. It isn't SUPPOSED to be just like a 1969, or a 1974, etc. It is supposed to be a 2010, aware of its heritage, but reinventing itself.

Not a deal breaker just we have to make other arrangements. I'm pretty tolerant, the mail slot stripes I can understand, but the rear stripes is downright fugly

I made that assumption on the grounds that the Barrett-Jackson car is using the exact same stripe package as the Detroit and Montreal cars. If there is a lot of stripe underneath the spoiler, then there will be enough vinyl to lay it down the way you want.

In this picture, there is no way to tell how much striping is underneath the spoiler:

Yes, if it's the same package I suppose you're right. But then that also means that at no additional cost, they can still change them to the rear of the spoiler based on our poll here http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11857 which shows a nearly 90% favor of that.
Obviously there is still a lot of indecision on GM's part as to how the stripes should be done. First the bumblebee version, then within a few days of each other the NAIAS and B.J. versions. Why so many about-faces? Are they trying to confuse buyers? They sure are doing a good job of it. Wonder how they'll be done in Fedruary?
I personally don't understand stopping them in the middle of a surface, be it the front or rear of the spoiler. At least at the bottom of the rear of the spoiler there is a natural break between two body parts.
Sorry, I'm frustrated.

I like over the spoiler best but I'll take either one. I like both, just prefer over the spoiler.

I think GM has done an awesome job on the Camaro...only wish the "final" version of stuff would be brought forward to know exactly what we are getting!
