Just curious if anyone would have a clue how much it would cost to get the stripes painted on my car? The stickers are starting to come off :( So I was thinking about having it done in paint.

Any ideas? Or suggestions in the NE?
Thanks

I got an estimate of $2k including repaint of hood and clearcoat (but in Dallas, not NE).

Coming off? WTF is that. I would be calling the dealer and see what they have to say about that. :mah:

I'm guessing they are gonna claim wear and tear, I'll get some close up pics and post them here in the next few days.

but for 2K it might be easier to just go ahead and buy the skickers again

I mentioned that I was on the fence to someone a while ago as to whether to get the decal stripes or paint them on. His advice......if the decal gets chipped, just replace the decal. If the paint gets chipped.........

Go for the decals.

Good question! I'm getting a new MCM hood in two weeks so I'm also debating whether to paint the stripes on the whole car, or order new stripes for the hood. Trouble is I need two stripe kits for the hood, due to the curvature of the reverse scoop. Decisions, desisions! Might as well get it wet sanded too. I'd go to the dealer, and claim warranty on the stripes. :cheers:

Have the dealer replace under warranty. I don't see why there would be a problem. Use a dealer with a good body shop.

was going to suggest the same thing. Also, how long have you had your car? Kinda bothers me that it's coming up already and the car can only be at least a year old.

I don't like the sound of this topic. Has the decal been mistreated in anyway? :cry:

Unless you take the car to chip foose or boyd coddington forget it! The paint would be 2nd rate. Take it back to dealer and demand new stripes... :mug:

Production was stopped around the 1st of Nov and started the around the end of Nov. 2003. My car was one of the 1st after production was restarted #174 / 2025. Born 12/3/2003. There is a long gap after number 100. This is from www.bowlinggreenassemblyplant.com for the Z16's. Also posted on www.z16.org

Are you sure???
I thought the reason was the paint finish on the carbon fiber hood.

Sorry guys been away for a bit.

The car has not been mistreated (in my opinion). I hand wash it about once a week. I drive it daily so it does see the weather. It sits in the garage unless it's being driven or washed. I have used a pressure washer once or twice in the cold weather but I'm careful to go easy and from a distance anywhere near the stripes.

The stripes are not coming off, it's the red part is flaking. It used to be something only I saw now other people point to it when looking a the car. It's happening in all parts not just the hood.

The car has almost 12K miles on it. (I plan to get the 36K miles out of my warrenty LOL) It's just less than a year old, I bought it on Aug 18, 2004.

Wish I had a dealership I trusted to take mine too. No problems with the z16 yet (knocking on wood) but the dealership has destroyed my daily driver, and their body shop is horrendous :(
