2017 Z06 Admiral Blue - Stripe Added

I had the dealer order in a full body stripe kit in Cyber Gray Metaillic, hoping for a somewhat subtle look. Since I didn't want to risk ruining a $900 stripe kit, I took the car to a local sign shop professional to do the install. He did a great job in about 5 hours:



















The Cyber Gray created the effect I was hoping for. An unexpected plus was the Cyber Gray tends to mimick the gray in the carbon fiber.

I'm thinking this colour of stripe would likely go well with most body colours.

I like it. Nice and subtle. Doesn't scream look at me.

Certainly the stripe doesn't scream look at me. But the car itself is about as subtle as a 427 Lingenfelter.

Looks great! I bought mat black stripes for my car about 5 years ago and never put them on. Didn't know who to take it to.

You did well - looks fantastic. I also wanted the full stripes but didn't want the "in your face" look - so I went with the Carbon Flash on my black Z06.

Now that's what I call SUBTLE - LOL!

Re: 2017 Z06 Admiral Blue - Stripe Added

Jacob,
The car looks great. I noticed in your older photo's you had your front plate mounted with the GE accessory which took up a big chunk of your grill space. I see in this photo you have the plate mounted lower in a position that does not restrict the airflow as much. Was the choice for aesthetics or cooling? Or both?

Can you share how you mounted the plate in the lower position?

Being in NYC it kills me to have the mandatory front plate on mine taking a big part of the grill and blocking airflow.

Regards,
Bowie

Lower mounting position was done for both the reasons you suggest. Google "Sto-N-Sho" for the ingenious quick release mount.
