'68 D90 stripe questions
« on: November 24, 2013, 08:33:30 PM »
I am going to putting the '68 D90 Super Sport stripe on my car. I am going to have mine fully painted and not use any decals.

 I am not sure where to order the stripe stencil from.......I know you can buy them from any catalog but am sure the quality probably varies depending on who makes it.

 I did some research here on the site and the name Stencils and Stripes, Unlimited came up a lot.

 I would want mine to look like the one in this picture. I have seen some stripes out there where they look too fat as they sweep across the rear of the fender and door.

 If the "Camaro" script emblem on the fender is positioned properly and the stripe is the correct width under the "Camaro" emblem, will the emblem overlap the stripe?..... I know the bottom of the "C" probably will, but how about the "amaro" ?

 Thanks.....Dave

That pictured sample is WAY off on the edge distance from the wheel well lip.
Ref: 1968 AIM, D90, Sheet A1, Page # 237. Calls for 1".

Most would never know. Still a nice photo.
I used Stencils & decal in 1987.
Where I goofed was not checking 396 emblem placement PRIOR to shooting the nose stripe, Emblem has been incorrectly located during a prior repair and repaint in 1980 by previous owner.
Learn from my mistake check the emblem placement even if you are farming out the paint work

Mine looks goofy w/ 396 out of position & never have bothered to fix it over the years.

I have never seen one of these stencils. How are they made and how are they applied? Does the stencil merely give you a guide as to where to place your own masking tape. Or is the masking tape you use part of the stencil itself?

Also, if your engine size emblem and the stripe are both placed according to the AIM, will the emblem fit inside of.....and be centered in the fat. middle part of the stripe?.....I see emblems out there in all kinds of different places in relation to the stripe.

It was a long time ago (1986/87) WHEN we painted my car.
I thought the stencil was a peel & stick, then you used your 1/8" fine line 3m tape to set the pin stripe.
My buddie the pro painter did it as I would goof it up.

I like the 396/350 centered in the fat part of the stripe, but the factory SURE deviated & I have orig paint photos of my (LOS) car and the 396 is not centered perfectly as built.
