Holden Ralleye style stripes aren't bad if done right like on OneSlowGreenGT's car.

I was going to purchase a Liquid Red GT like the one above and I am glad I did not. The big issue I see with those stripes is over time they will peel and it will just turn into a vehicle that looks like it belongs in a trailer park somewhere in mississippi (yeah I didn't capitalize it). Another reason is if you wax &/ polish, the time spent getting around all those stripes is just a pain.

the dealer, along with a few detailing friends have told me to wax over them. i haven't had any issues with hazing or discoloration.

Holly crap, I just bought a hot white GT with those G8 stripes. They were off the evening I got home. I now see why this was the only GT on the lot. I think that the stripes scared away most of the more conservative buyers(my opinion only). The last car that I owned with stripes was my 68 Z28. Thank goodness I found this post, I was going nuts trying to find any info on them.

Well.
I got stripes and my car was the last car in the dealer too.
I've had my car for the past 3 months, and I haven't had a problem with them at all.
And I love when people look over at my car and are like wow..

I had the G8 stripe package as shown in post #1. White car with flat black package. I not only removed the stripes but also all emblems. I had a '68' Z28, maroon with white stripes that were painted on the car which I liked very much. Some vehicles look good with stripes, some, not so much. Just my 2 cents.

Sorry about the duplication, don't post much. I very well could post again in May if you ask nice.

If I did them I would just do the hood and rear decklid/spoiler. I think they are OK but would spend my money on something else. JMHO
