I was looking at picking up a set of T2 stripes and the A-pillar/back deck wrap, but I noticed the only black offered is gloss black. Would you guys be willing to cut a matte black version? I think matte black would blend with the convertible top a little better.

Why not just use Plasti-Dip on those 2 parts? It is removable and comes in flat black.
Yeah I am considering that as well, I would still need the stripes in matte black though. I could get just generic racing stripes, but I don't really want the hassle of having to cut them and fold them around the grilles/nooks/crannies of the car which is why I liked the T2 stripes so much.

You can use the plati-dip to make stripes too. ;)
excuse my ignorance, but Im new to plastidip, Im assuming it doesnt hurt the clearcoat at all?

Nope. Peels off like a rubber sheet of paint when you are done.

The only thing I'm not a fan of is using plasti-dip for stripes or anything that requires a straight line. I've never seen a plasti-dip edge come out straight unless it's the physical edge of the part. The Cobalt community loves plasti-dipping the "evo" or "gtp" mod on the front bumper but the edges looks lousy close up in my opinion.

Did you look at the photos in my link? My stripe edges came out perfectly sharp and straight. Used 'blue' tape and peeled while the pl.dip was still wet.

I can cut the stripes in matte. The A pillar kit is a special vinyl we use and I don't stock it in matte. If there was enough demand for matte I would stock it. If you want the stripes in matte.. just order them in gloss and put notes in the comment box that you want matte black. We will take care of the rest. Thx.
