If you want stripes, check in here!!!!

I have confirmed information on the stripes being installed on your Camaros. This only pertains to the twin stripes, not the 'hockey stick'. The stripes are being installed in a facility near the Oshawa assembly plant. They do not go over the rear spoiler and down the rear of the vehicle. If you are in a vehicle behind a Camaro with stripes installed, they cannot be seen. It's kind of discouraging for me to think of people paying for stripes, and you can't even see them from behind. I suggest that those who ordered (or will be ordering) a Camaro with a stripe option, if you want them to extend over the spoiler and down the back, get on the phone and be heard. It's still not too late to get this changed.

I know I am in the minority here, but I do not want the stripes to go over the bumper (front or back). I like them exactly as they are. A little curve over the spoiler would be ok, but that's it, in my opinion.

I would imagine it may have something to do with stripe alignment and fitment issues over the top of the spoiler. If I were to guess. SLP said they had a heckuva time with the 35th LE stripes.

I agree, painted stripes are the only way to go, but like a tattoo, you better really want to keep them and the folks doing it better know what they're doing.

I think this is the problem with even attempting to do stripes on the rear spoiler. The first gens had basically a straight spolier. This spolier has curves as it wraps around the rear of the trunk. To make it look right with vinyl and have them not bubble while installing would be a nightmare.



I'm sticking with the vinyl stripes as is. I just can't bring myself to pay someone to paint stripes on a new paint job. I just wish all of the stripes could be factory installed since dealers love to use the famous nylon boat brush



Which by the way instantly swirls the paint.

I would like the stripes to extend a little further (both front and back)...I agree with what was said...my guess is that they're doing them this way to make them easier (for the dealers) to install.

I changed my stripe package to CGM in order to get a factory job done. We recently had a dealer installed stripe package put on our Vette and the dealer had the car for three days. They attempted to install themselves and ended up contracting it out after getting huge bubbles. They had to eat $600.00 in labor fees so they were pissed and the wife was pissed cause they had the car thru a warm spell and by the time we got it back it was snowing again, (they told her they would need about an hour to install). Total nightmare, no winners and though I'm sure there are dealers that can install properly, there is definitely an art to it.
