69 Z28 Stripes.
I know this is a topic more suited for the paint & body section, but I'm going for as much response and input as I can get here...I figure most folks are like me and have their favorite forums they frequent, and this forum probably gets the most hits.
I've got a 69 RS in the shop that is going silver with black Z28 style stripes on the hood and trunklid. Now, the only way I can ever remember seeing these stripes on the front is where the stripes go all the way to the front and wrap in and under the grill. I have been studying and digging up as many photos of cars with these stripes as I can, and everything I come up with shows the front stripes exactly as I described....that is until I looked at the ad for the stencils in the new Classic Industries catalogue....it shows a yellow RS/Z28 w/ black stripes. Instead of the front stripes wrapping into the grill they stop about an inch short of the front of the valance panel.....like the 70-72 Chevelle Stripes or the early 70's Camaros.
Every other picture in that same catalogue and all the pics in the Year One catalogue shows the stripes as I mentioned earlier.
What are some opinions / facts on this??? I'm thinking the ad in the Classic Industries book is wrong and just wasn't caught when the book was going together, but, I wouldn't lay money on it. The fact that the stencil kit only comes with the stencil for the cowl panel and the rest is layed out with straight fine line seems to support that theory.....but again, I wouldn't bet my life on it.
Does anyone here have a car like this, with the stripes ending short of the front of the valance, or seen any cars like this?
Help and thanks,
