    Don't laugh too hard but many years ago, I did once use black insulation tape as side stripes. The old body strips fell off taking some of the paint with it on a white Gemini.

    When you say "black tape" do you mean the rubber strip that sit in the recess around the top of the bumper ?

    If so, try looking for "Bumper Mould Strip" or "Bumper Bar Insert Strip".

    This one is for SS but same thing I am referring to - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Used-Holden-Commodore-VR-VS-SS-Bumper-Mould-Strip-Red-Front-92042663/332808912855?fits=Model:Commodore|Plat_Gen:VS&epid=9023847778&hash=item4d7cf4ffd7:g:4j4AAOSwDOlbnz8F:rk:17:pf:0

    And this one for Calais - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GENUINE...h=item3f5f3b4e5e:g:gyAAAOSwr7ZW79xp:rk:9:pf:0

    yeah thats what Im on about, but the exec has black thin strip which has a texture similar to the polly packing straps
    My front bar got munched by a large tow bar...Ive found a brand new bar but cant find the stuff holden used for the insert...Id just get a good 2nd hand one and get it painted but my panel guy hates prep work and charges accordingly :D

    Wouldn't think so.

    Having said that, have you tried calling Holden....it can be surprising what they have lying around in the "warehouse"

    I think you'd be best contacting a Crash Supplies outlet as they'll have it or contact a crash shop and ask them who they use to do all their mobile striping work. The stuff you are looking for is actual PVC strip with silver tape stuck to it down the middle.

    Some ******** reversed into my VS. The panel beater reckons he can't obtain replacement strip anywhere. Mine is black with red stripe.

    Sounds like Spac strip.

    Just need to keep trawling around for an Spac wreck, front bar etc to try & get one.

    Alternative is to not have one at all and remove the rest of the trolley strips for a clean look.
