Pictures at GM striping facility.

Here is a really neat picture for all of you who are worried about how GM applies stripes. This is a picture inside the stripe facility in the clean room. First, all cars are thoroughly cleaned and dried off in the hood and trunk lid area. Then the car is placed in a well lit area within the clean room to ensure that any defects or impurities are seen and removed. The blue film you see in this picture is only removed after the application is complete to reduce the risk of damaging the stripes.

Those are great pics. It's not often you get to see the process itself. It always made you wonder how they did it. I know people (JeffY) explained how much a PITA it was with the 35th LE stripes, but it's good to see behind the curtain.

Great pictures, thanks for posting Hylton!

Wow, I didn't think I'd like the combo, but black with white stripes looks AWESOME!

.....then again, just about anything looks awesome on this car.

.....with the possible exception of leopard-print and green/orange plaid two-tone.
