Hello,

There's been a lot of talk about what color combonations people would like with their stripes and body color. And usually it's in reference to the single stripe. What are the chances that there will also be a striping option with the second single line like seen on Bumblebee? Or is the single stripe more standard on cars like these?

I would say a double stripe is more prelevent, expecially on GM vehicles. That's assuming they offer stripes. Of course, there are a million companies that make vinyl stripes in any number of shades to look how you want them to look and fit for relatively little cash. I bought some silver double stripes for my S-10 for $150...about three years ago I guess.

Just curious, how do the vinyl stripes look? Do they have that smooth painted on high gloss look, or are they kind of thick, and buldge up a little to where you can see an edge on them?

Usually factory stripes are vinyl. I doubt that stripes offered by GM will be painted. If they've ever done that, it hasn't been in a LONG time.

The vinyl strips on my S-10 looked good. There was a bit of an edge to them that sometimes you had to pay extra attention to when removing wax, but that was it. You can get vinyl stripes in any number of finishes (glossy, semi-gloss, satin, flat). Mine were glossy and matched the paint pretty well. I was pretty picky, and I liked the stripes alot.

What I've noticed is that typically, when stripes are offered, they offer them in the same colors they offer the bodies in. For instance, the S-10 Xtreme's had an option stripe package and when you selected the package at the dealer, you could pick any of the other colors the S-10 came in for the stripes (it was an $800 option...So I bought my own).

I like to have matte black, but Im sure OEM vinyl would crap out in no time. I have a special matte black automotive paint with UV protectant in it and I like to see if my body guy will paint the BB stripes on with it and have small lettering as exposed body paint near on the cowl reading, "Blue Bee 13".

I'm leaning towards black with white stripes. Unless, I there's a red or red accent interior available. Then, i'll do red stripes or just solid black.
