Well so much of what they've changed is in response to feedback we've given them. So as long as they're still willing to listen to us AND other customers then I'm definitely open to changes. Last minute tweaks like this can really help the little details that make a car shine.

So any word on

"The hockey stick stripe package comes with hockey stick stripes down the side, a large stripe down the hood and trunk of the car which is about the width of the raised area of the hood, and a back panel black out treatment decal"

We seen the RS production ones now what are these going to be like?

There's a video around here somewhere of a white SS with these stripes in black...

Give me a second to find it...

P.S. - Here's some still shots from the video. The video itself can be found here.

Which stripes go to the end of the hood?

I want the rally stripes, but I heard they don't go to the end of the hood. Is that true? Why do they stop short?

And here's your answer per Scott.

The decision to make the stripes shorter is one of assembly issues.

I went thru this with the 35th Anniversary cars -- when you 'cross' openings, there is substantial 'scrappage' because unless the edges align EXACTLY, we will strip and start over -- and that adds HUGE cost to do so. (so please, whoever is saying that it doesn't cost any more to install a longer stripe -- it's not a true statement.......) Further, polls are good -- but I can also show you a poll where 87% of people polled said they'd pay $1,000 to add leather fragrance to a Buick Regal a few years back.......(leather does not naturally smell like you think it does......) I'm here to tell you that the Buick poll was FLAWED in that very few people are gonna pay that kind of money -- regardless of what they said they'd do.

I understand that issues like this are important to people -- Camaro invokes passion -- and passion can sometimes lead to conflict.

My solution? Paint them on as you'd like them to appear.

While we try to keep everyone happy, that's simply impossible.........

One thing regarding this.

From the SEMA pictures and confirmed by John Cox I believe, the Hockey stripes are not going to extend below the turn signal.

I wish they did..... but I'm still getting them.

I believe we have yet to see them on a car and from the pictures at the Chevy site it's really hard to tell. So, sorry I don't have an answer for you, maybe someone else does.

I wonder how many will get one whith no stripes at all. Sounds like if you wanted to be different and not do it custom, you could just get one with none at all.

Can anyone confirm the color of the Silver stripes to be that of the Silver Ice Metallic??..the catalog has it as Switchblade Silver..which I believe is the same as the new Blade Silver on the Vette that is also the same as SIM...will the stripes have a metallic look like the CGM stripes?? Thanks in Advance

I'm not sure if they will be perfectly matched to the SIM, but they should definitely be metallic. Most people pretty much assume silver = metallic and GM would end up letting a lot of people down if they weren't metallic.
