67 rs pinstripe- z21?
« on: July 31, 2017, 09:43:05 PM »
I am putting the pinstripe back on my 67 rs. i have the assembly instruction page for the z21 option.   i see that the stripe is 1/16/ space 1/8 and then 3/32.  i see the positioning of the the stripe down from the body lines for the 3 sections. i see the end detail.  I don't see the distance to the front end of the fender if i don't have the nose stripe. and the distance to the back of the quarter- mine says 126.625 which i can't make an sense of.  i am looking for those two dimensions. also the page says drawn on 8-24-66 and on the right side it has the revision record dated 9/8/66. my car was produced on 11/29/66.  is there a revised drawing?

I don't have drawings or a measurement but this should be pretty close.

nice car!  can you take a measurement from the front of the stripe to the front edge of the fender and then the same at the back?  It looks like about 3/4" on both.  thanks Mike

I am a few hours from the car so I can't measure it at this time.

These are both claimed survivor SS cars, so just shots of the rear.  The gold was a mid-year NOR, Jan-Mar time frame

I believe that the 126.625" is from the datum line (aka: firewall)  As I remember, there is also a datum line reference number for the ending of the front fender stripe.

Mike,
Were you able to locate a source for the 1/16", 1/8" space, and 3/32" pin striping stencil (all three dimensions in one roll)?  I've searched and can't find anything.  Free handing those stripes or free handing two separate stencils and making them exactly parallel is beyond my abilities.

I think that would be 126 5/8 long.

Pete's L48  -  beautiful survivors!!
Maroman  - yes, the 126.5/8" would be the length of the stripe.  I should have searched and got my facts correct, rather than trying to remember (which can be vague at best, sometimes).

On page Z21 A1 (in the AIM) the start of the Z21 pinstripe is -48.437 from the firewall, unless you had the SS/RS option, where the start of the Z21 stripe would be -44.125" from the firewall to allow for the bumble bee stripe.  On page UPC 11-13 B8 of the AIM, it shows the fire wall as being reference "0.00" for measurements.  Every time I open the AIM, I learn something new!

I found pinstriping stencils at Finesse Pinstriping, stencil F22 for our '67 Camaro's.  Stencil F22 has an additional third stripe, but that can easily be omitted during layout.  The F22 stencil has a 1/16" stripe, an 1/8" gap, and a 3/32" stripe, an 1/8"gap, and a 1/16" stripe that isn't needed.  That is very close to the original .060" stripe, .100" gap, and .100" stripe.  Just thought I'd let anyone know who is considering a Z21 stripe in their restoration.

The factory used a Beugler striping tool set against a magnetic strip affixed to the body. Often, you can see the wheel marks it leaves. I've been hand striping for decades and Finesse tape works well. I hand pull the ends. You'll have to do the same or carefully razor the center section to make a point. The point was not originally a razor point. One Shot dries slowly, House of Kolor urethane striping paint dries fast. If you wait until one stripe dries before taping the point for the next stripe, you can end up with a faint tapeline. Hand striping or the Beuglar does not leave tape lines when using One Shot or Chromatic and doing both stripes at once.

  The F-6 has the same two stripes + gap but without the third stripe.

You may find a static charge on the car will suck the paint right off the brush. Just kill it by wiping with a clean damp rag, or a good glass cleaner like Sprayway. Finesse striping paint is fine. I just buy One Shot due to convenience. Use the F-6 like Mike said.
