SS & Z/28 stripe colors
« on: February 20, 2021, 11:06:56 PM »
I've been looking around here for the paint codes for stripes. Was code 10 used for black stripes, code 50 for white stripes & code 72 for Z10 & Z11? Subject came up on FB. Thank you, Joe

Joe the Camaro stripe colours for the 1969 MY are listed on the lower right side of the attached Ditzler chart. White stripe code is a match for the Dover White code, but note the black stripe code shown (9000) differs from the Tuxedo Black code (9300).......
No idea if this is a typo on the chart, or if they were indeed slightly different. But to me, surely the factory would have used what they already had (Tuxedo) and not added complexity and expense by introducing another paint shade.....
May be best left to the FB experts to debate!

I saw that in the Dupont chart also. Because of the colors listed, I'm wondering if it means pinstriping colors because orange isn't listed. Thank you, Joe

Saw that too, but figured orange stripes were only on the Z10/Z11 (short mid-production timeframe) rather than throughout the model year, so probably why that wasnt specifically listed. Id imagine those codes applied to all stripe options, DX1, D90 etc.
