Came out great, love that look!




From the factory they are not painted, they are vinyl decals . He had his specially painted and that's really the best way but vinyl is all the factory offers.

Here is my factory vinyl stripes,

Certainly nothing wrong w/that either! Am shopping stripes myself now that my 20 showed up.

Choices, choices...

Looks great. Its subtle but awesome. I think subtle is better than overly flashy.

Im doing rally stripes on mine also. I'm planning to do a 1" inner red stripe, dual 5" black stripes and 1/2" stripes on the outside, so it will be black stripes with red outline. Below is an unfinished example with 4" black stripes. I used electrical tape and just did the hood. I got some better vinyl tape (real pinstripe tape) and am going to redo it the full length of the car: hood, roof, trunk.

all white is just too plain for this car IMO. (Scat Pack)

Im planning to use vinyl first and if I like it enough I will paint it. Im thinking at that point I would do a full paint correction and fresh clear coat.

How long did it take for them to do your black stripes?

I was unsure of painting but figured I’d do it while new and before contaminants. I’m not gonna lie I was sick to see my new car with 600 miles all disassembled and sanded down. I still have to bring it back in a couple weeks for the final polishing.

I had the same color/stripe combo on my '15 SRT392. I always got lots of compliments.
I also thought the pin stripes along the sides looked better than the plane stripes the Hellcats have/had available.
Not sure why they just didn't stripe them all the same way.

EleanorScat, the car looks great. (y)
The wider stripes go well with the widebody.

Real nice, ES. Quality work and it looks great.
Here’s my ‘16 with factory vinyl.
Although your painted stripes look better, I don’t think I can go that route. I am considering adding a single red stripe like this one. I really like the non-symmetric look.

Apologies to the owner. I’m pretty sure I got this picture from CT some time back.

Thanks, A Guy. No one can find stuff like you can!
Looks like I really liked that stripe back in 2018. Why haven’t I done anything about it?

I spent many a night trying to find a used srt granite and striped just like yours. It looks great. Only reason I didnt go that route in the end was......it was just too hard to pass the Power Dollars on a new especially when a used srt was only a small bit cheaper.
