Carbon Fiber Stripes

Has anybody ordered and recieved the carbon fiber stripes? I was trying to decide if I should order the black stripes on my CGM or buy the after market carbon fiber stripes.

the vinyl ones look good, but...

if you want true carbon fiber stripes, go the extra mile and order an OEM carbon fiber hood, trunk lid, and spoiler, then paint them leaving the stripes part exposed, and then clear the whole thing

You should get custom plates that say "LINSYN" That would be awesome! (sorry OP, didn't mean to hijack or anything)

Thanks Linda, I didn't know they had the spears. Really looks good on the green. Where did you get them?

Thumbs up Carbon fiber

Billy, your the man. I read what you did and your Camaro looks awsome. I don't have that much time, talent or money for your mods. I would like to see a carbon fiber kit for the interior though.

I got the material at Metro Decals and had Hill Country window films design, cut and install them. I am loving them! Call Frank at Hill Country if you want to order... 469.658.9967

Hey Camaru,
Got my CF effect stripes from EVS Motors' having only seen pictures of them on their project Black 2ss.
Mine are sport stripes laid on a IOM 1ss and they look awesome.They look so much better than the OEM Matt coloured stripes at a similar cost,also check out Mailbox graduated tint decal,that is good too.

Then the only problem would be the poor fit and added weight.

With the vinyl you have a hood that still fits.

Hey Albion, I would like to see some pics. I was thinking about those same stripes. Did you put them on yourself?

My CF stripes were mailed to the dealer and applied by them,before the car was exported to me.
I took a slight gamble but boy did it pay off,most agree,too.
PM me your e-MAIL address and i will try to send you a couple of pics,i'm not that good but will probably manage ok.
