The Corvette Page

The 2014-2017 Corvette Stingray is one of our favorite new sports cars and we believe it's one of the best deals on the market today. You can get a serious dose of American power for less than a Lexus!

Tapeworks has several very good color matches to most of the new colors, including the new Daytona Sunrise Orange. Chevrolet offer a set of wheels as an option with either a red or a yellow stripe, in one width, for over five thousand dollars. Granted you can probably talk the dealer down in price, but you'll never get anywhere close to the Tapeworks price of fifty bucks, which includes a set of stripes and a Stripe-It-All tool. And Tapeworks can match your car's color!

We've gotten some great reviews from satisfied customers over at corvetteforum.com:

As always, we recommend calling us and trying a few color swatches on your car. Sometimes Rimstripes look better in a brighter, more vibrant color, or maybe you want to match the stripes to a different part of the car. Color swatches are free - just give us a call at 1-800-232-8273.

 

Check Out Mr. Groovy

The Z06 wheel has a funky little groove on the rim, so Tapeworks also makes a specially-modified Stripe-It-All Tool called Mr. Groovy that will put a thin Rimstripe right down in that groove. Check it out:

The Mr. Groovy Stripe-It-All package comes with an entire unmodified Stripe-It-All Tool plus the specially-modified spool guides, a modified nut, an additional bolt, and a unique 3/16-inch spool - all of which are only available with a Mr. Groovy. You get enough parts to make two whole tools - a regular setup and a Groovy setup!

 

We used one of our Mr. Groovy tools to install some 6127 Red Rimstripes on Richard Huskins's Z06 and got some photos, so here's the whole installation process:

Before we could install the stripes, we needed to jack the wheels off the ground in order to rotate them during installation.

It was a three-stage process. Each front wheel could be jacked up individually; we had no problem there. The rear wheels, due to the limited-slip differential, were a very different situation. They won't rotate unless both wheels are off the ground and the car is in neutral.

So we carefully placed a piece of wood between the jack and the differential, to avoid marring the housing, and jacked up the rear until both wheels spun freely. It worked great and the red Rimstripes are the perfect accent to highlight those black wheels. Once we completed the installation, the Huskinses left in such a hurry that we didn't get time to photograph the finished results. So I emailed Richard to send us some photos, which he did:

"Below are the pictures of my Z06 with my red stripes. I think it looks great."

"Thanks"
