Was thinking about painted stripes , The vinyl that's on
seems like it makes it easier to mask off the rest of the car
& you can paint in around the license.
On the one hand painted stripes look awesome , on the other
it will ruin the originality
Thoughts ??

Painted Stripes

Oz1 - I really like the idea of painting the stripes and plan on doing this once I get my car. I've seen comparisons of vinyl versus painted on some Camaro's and the difference with the painted stripes is big. Would have been nice if they were painted from the factory since they are limited.

Stripe Painting

I hear ya zeagen on Dodge needing the stripes being painted on the IE models. Keeping these vinyl stripes in nice condition is going to be a pain in the a#%.

If I were to have painted stripes... I would first talk to a really good body shop in regards to racing stripes. Although I don't know how this would effect re-sale value... :scratchhead:

But if you end up painting stripes on your car... I'd love to see pics! I'm sure the difference would be very apparent.

When they are painted even with the rest of the paint so there are no ridges then all the area's cleared they look phenomenal.
My stripes had swirls from day one .
I may wait to see how the vinyl hold up but it's a night & day difference
between painted & vinyl.

I am thinking of ripping mine off and you are thinking of painting them on.

Interesting.

I am considering painting my stripes on too.

1. It needs to be done by a great body shop guy.
2. I think the originality might be ok, IF the stripes on done 100% first class.

Too bad they didn't offer the option from the factory like they did on the Vipers & Ford GT's for that matter
