I don't remember ever seeing pinstripes as a factory option, but there are a lot of people who are quite good at painting on pinstripes. A friend of mine tried his hand at it on my '72 Camaro, it looks pretty darn good. And I think Bill said he took his painted ones off with laquer thinner, I don't think I'd try it unless the stripes were painted on a clearcoat.

I guess the painted ones are from the factory. I really have no idea whether or not the taped on ones were available from the factory or not. Strange how the painted ones seem to start in '93. Nowadays they all seem to be a dealer installed option (one that I would pass on, IMHO).
