This is the 'Vertical Stripe Package" - available in Gray, Red, Orange, White or Black.....


Here's a pic taken (sorry for the quality) with my B/Berry - taken at Pier Park in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI - earlier this afternoon..........

Quarter flares?????



We don't have them yet in white - and with all the slop on the roads here, it's almost a 'gotta-have' -

I didn't put them on Thor or Thor V 2.0 and I was constantly wiping off tar and it was extremely hard to keep them clean - -esp. with moisture on the pavement here and there (puddles)

The quarter flares kept him clean all afternoon.......(but I do agree that they're gonna need a-paintin' )


As an aside: I drove him up and down Lakeshore drive with the top down this afternoon - and the windshield does a great job of keeping the cold wind out of your face. (it's 34 degrees in the Motor City ....)

Re: Helios gets his stripes........

I must have just missed you Scott because I to was going down Lakeshore Drive this afternoon but in my daily driver. The Camaro looks great even though we are in the far north! I wanted you to go with orange stripe's, but the black turned out great!!!! Nice work.

Re: Helios gets his stripes........

Love the stripes!! As for the quarter flares... I am happy to see the ZL1 got some corvette-esque moldings on the wheel wells. I was hoping by now it would be a more standard piece for even just the SS. The quarter flares look ok but what the Zl1 got (and Z06, and ZR1) looks better.

I spent a weekend molding some C6 ones to my 98 and have enjoyed the 90% decrease in crap flying off the rear tires

quarter flares???? just a fancy name for mud flaps... They will look much better painted body color.

As an aside: my mom is dying to see the convertible in person.... and she is due for a new car soon.

Cool Re: Helios gets his stripes........

Helios looks great with his new stripes, especially with the top down.

Re: Helios gets his stripes........

Admittedly based only on those pics and not having seen them in person, I don't think I like the stripes, especially the thicker, upkicked part at the rear.

Re: Helios gets his stripes........

Actually that is the only stripe package I actually like on the 5th gen Camaros.

Nice choice!

Re: Helios gets his stripes........

Looks so good until the top goes up! Anyway, I am still on the fence about the stripes. Could we get a picture of the front of the car to see how the stripes taper off there? Thanks.

Re: Helios gets his stripes........

Maybe you can have jcamere take a couple of beauty shots of it to really show off the stripes...
