Thumbs up

Looks awesome!!
Looks like the stripes do have a little transparency in them or a little metallic flake? No sure.

Dude, I dont know every one another thread is complaining about the flat black stripes. In my opinion, I really love it. Congrats man. I am certainly digging the color scheme.

I can imagine wearing shiny spots into the vinyl after rubbing it while trying to clean them.
I believe you wash and wax them as normal...I'm going to today..will update my progress.

Yes, you HAVE to remove the rear spoiler to get the trunk stripes on. You have to remove the carpet from the trunk lid...it's somewhat of a pain...and be REALLY careful..don't want any bolts or washers dropping down in your trunk lid.

Yes, there is a separate small stripe for the spoiler. And yes again, there will be aftermarket stripes I'm sure.

it looks good, but stripes aren't for me. Attracts too much attention from the popo.

BTW, is there a glossy stripe package?
Black is the only FLAT Rally stripe. All other Rally stripes are glossy.

ALL Hockey stripes are Flat from what I hear.

From what I'm told, you can order "individual" stripes - I'm not sure if this is just for warranty or what.... Anyway, I won't be getting another "full" package - or so I don't think.

I was there about 3 hours.... but we didn't get everything done obviously. :(

Stripes look great! The flat black looks better than I thought it would. Sorry to hear about the back stripes. I would have been more pissed than you were.

Those would look sick on a black Camaro...they would be so suddle, yet so menacing looking.

It shouldn't be any closer...but the angle is not exactly the same as the passenger side.

You are the first person to notice.

The driver's side stripe is actually getting replaced the same time the trunk is going to be done....

With that said getting these stripes EXACT - probably will not happen for MOST stripes. Very very close is going to have to be good enough I think.... and for me it is.

Thanks man. Yea I LOVE this car..

The guys said all you need is "heat" to take off the stripes...and mentioned the longer they are on there - the harder they are to get off. Didn't sound too complicated though.

Sorry have to disagree if that's the look I'm going to have mine painted on. I'll end up e-baying mine. Too bad I didn't use my head and not order them until after the started to show up. Important thing is if you likem that's all that counts good luck

I'm picky about the stripes too. I noticed that also but I didn't want to ruin your day. If I were YOU I would do the below....)

You have to do most of it over again, just order the CGM stripes, they are glossy...

I honestly considered that option... but since the stripe guy made a mistake they are "warranty'ing" the stripes that I ordered...

If I want CGM stripes I'd have to pay another $470 for them or whatever... Honestly I really like these stripes they way they look now. If I see glossy CGM on silver in the future and decide to change my mind, I'll fork out the cash. Until then, I am a happy camper.
