Default 2 bad Jake stingers

Another return coming up.1st Jake had the Measles.Had spots.Looked like Brake Cleaner made contact
Returned that one.No issue.
This one from another GM Parts Site.The box looks like it has more miles than my GS With 15k.Called them.About the box.
Didn't even open it and knew...This ain't good already
I was right..I'll let the pictures do the talking.


Opened and Wellahh.All kinked up

Allready got a good kink.Where's the tape from with the tear.Someone tried to install.
No Thanks
Shouldn't have to pay return shipping.See what happens.You have to fill out a form before returning.
OBOY,Let the Games Begin.

If paid by credit card, I would dispute the charge and then in turn use that as leverage for getting the seller to pay the return shipping. After that, if you still are looking for a Jake Stinger, then order one through your local Chevy dealer....

Sucks that you are having so many problems with the decal. Might just be better to get it from your local dealer as suggested above.

Why don't you just have a local vinyl shop print and install a Jake for you? They can make it in any color and size you want. That's what I did on my C6 and C7 and couldn't be happier.

Ha,She has.Showed her photo's of GM'S Jake and Vette stripes.That's gonna look like a Flea Market.Go ahead ruin it.Told Her the story about the Jake,So..Gonna look Stupid!
So,What did I do?
Purchased it anyway.Now I got punished
Probably is good the sticker was bad? Got factory Stripes,maybe it would be to Bizzy?
The vent will probably snap in half trying to remove it? Or installer will have issue's?
The Mats,valve stem caps,dash plaque and seat belt covers support Corvette Racing.
That will have to do.
Payed for it with paypal.They want 10 days to receive it.Waiting on them now to ship back..Here we go

Mine is a GM Sticker from a on line GM Parts Website.Should be perfect like yours.Did yours look like my first photo in the box?
I asked for a return on their website and this was their Reply..
Hello, I am sorry if there is an issue with this decal. This is a direct factory GM factory fresh part. There are no instruction included in decals because it is a standard how to install with a qualified person installing the decal, how to install decals. This is not a job for the beginner to install. It must be done by a qualified installer. As this is a layered decal it will have as you stated "Masking Tape" on the layers so they can be removed and installed singly. This also is standard on the layered decals. As we do with all parts shipped we inspect each and every part to insure it is in factory fresh condition. This is a GM dealer direct part. So it is not packaged for the Retail market it is a Dealer driven and normally installed by the GM dealer. If you take this part to your local GM dealer or qualified decal installer. They can give you a heads up on if the part is damaged and able to be installed. The vinyl is very forgiving to kinks and folds. If the local Qualified installer is not able to install please contact us back.

I called them after reading this.I said,Guy..There is no way this is factory fresh.He tried again to talk me into keeping it.After a little back and forth he is suppose to send me a return ticket.Then he will inspect it like it states on his reply that..
WE INSPECT EVERY PART TO INSURE FACTORY FRESH CONDITION
He has to inspect it again...Ya Right

I always buy from Amazon, even if the part costs a little more. Returns require no human interaction. Click click and UPS shows up at your door.

Amazon didn't have the GM One.To me the GM is better looking.Others are close or not even.Was willing to pay extra for GM.
This had to be a return.That is why it was the cheapest when I Google searched.
