Question Your stripes - vinyl or paint?

Just curious what everyone has on their cars.

I WANT painted stripes but can't afford it now. SO... I will do vinyl for the time being.

Came with vinyl, it's in the shop right now and should be completed tomorrow.
We are changing from Flat Black decal stripes to CGM painted on stripes.

The dealer installed the orange-y vinyl ones.

We had a battle with the painting the white ones on. They said vinyl has come a long way. Well, it's $6500 paint job... If they're not on the space shuttle, I don't want them on my paint! I won and got them painted on. I'd have to go find the paperwork to tell you what it is... but it's a Chevy GM pearlized white.

The good thing about vinyl is you can change up the design or colors every few years and keep the car looking fresh. I get bored easy I guess!
