I've actually debated doing it to my 2000.
But they would only be a very dark candy apple red that blends with the black.

Anyway, I'll try to remember to post pics this weekend when I'm home... I have tons. They were SS stripes inspired from numerous Chevelle SS cars I looked at at car shows. Make sure to get them clear coated so they blend with the hood. The first time around I didn't have the cash so we (we being me and the shop owner) taped, sanded, and painted. Then I started to have some problems with the paint chipping on sharp curves of the body. In a strange way hitting a deer fixed this problem because my insurance covered it and they were repainted, but this time clear coated.

Not sure what design would look good on a 2000+ because the body curves are drastically different than the 92-99 body.

Oh BTW, that 94 is still around somewhere in Belvidere, IL.

Not coming down on you or anything, I'm simply pointing out this is a old thread. Best to check start dates.
