Calling JohnnyCamaro from GMPP! If GMPP offered longer stripes, would you buy them?

There has been a lot of discussion surrounding the length of stripes and how people want them made. Some people are happy with the length of the current production, factory, and to be dealer installed stripes which end on the hood of the Camaro.

Still, some others wish the stripes to continue off the hood and onto the front facia around the non-functional air intake (aka: mail slot).

My question to everyone here is this...

If GMPP/GM Accessories offered for sale, longer stripes at an additional charge to be installed by the dealer ONLY and NOT the factory, would you be interested in purchasing them?

If you answer yes, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE add, in a post, what you would be willing to pay for those stripes. Be REASONABLE with your price offer as well. If GMPP sees enough people wanting longer stripes, and they find it a profitable move to make them, it could be possible to actually have CHANGE.

John, if you saw enough people wanting the original hood to facia length stripes, do you think GMPP/GM Accessories would be willing to make them?

why just stop at the front fascia? i would prefer they went all the way down the front to the bottom lip below the grill. it gives it a more complete look IMO
i voted the 3rd option

It has been discussed that longer stripes in the past have led to a lot of wasted product. I feel that the current stripes look great, and waste is just an unnecessary loss unless the profit is significant.

If the longer stripes are offered I would be willing to pay an additional $100 due to the additional labor needed to install. So, if the current stripes cost $470 it would be hard for me to justify the stripes if the cost goes over $600.

If I cannot get the longer stripes, I will not get any and wait to have them painted on after delivery. I would pay $100 over the original stripe package.

This is exactly why I created this thread.

People like me will have them painted. ...although I'm not going for rally stripes. I'm just doing hockey stripes. But, they will be painted.

If someone out there wants the rallys and wants them further down, speak up! now is your chance to vote and actually have your voice/vote count!

I definitely want longer stripes, they do look incomplete and have no precedent in Camaro history. If you're not going to do it right just don't do it!

****Thanks to Silver Streak for the pic I used to make this sig****

Sadily the closest historical comparison to what is planned right now for the 2010 Camaro is the 1992 Camaro Heritage Rally Stripe, and the current paint stripes on the hood of many of the newer U haul trucks. Stripes end in the same location. Middle of the hood.

Factory installed Concept style Stripes would cost no more for the factory to install then the current short stripe idea provided the with the time consuming end pieces around the mail slot were segmented and shipped for dealer install.

IMO... Base 6 cyl cars could get short stripes. SS cars with the mail slot however need the longer stripe.

SS cars do not look right without longer stripes - and will become the recipient's of critical commentary by the competition mainly since the performance RPO equipped stripes (if shorter) would be different from the competition (ford..ect) and a comparison "mine are bigger than yours" could easily be made.

Basic human nature.

First, thanks GM for trying to keep the cost of this accessory low for the customer. But we're now saying that's not the way we want it. And as evidenced by this photo of the portotype bumblebee SS, the stripes we want have already been dimensioned, laid out and made. All you have to do is say, hey, let's not do this too cheap, let's do it right, make more.

And I fail to see the logic behind your initial reasoning that any additional cost of longer stripes would be deemed frivolous by the buyer, but, evidently, the lack of something like remote start with the automatic transmission would be seen as intolerable, since on that you gave us no choice to save some money!?!

Anyway, remember, early on in this program, we're your best advertising. Looks mean a lot; please do this thing right!!

I'll pay $100 more no problem!!!!!!
