John,

Did you ever witness the D/90 striping process at the factory?  I'm wondering about the fender masking process in particular at this point.Steve

The D90 fender stripe was painted in the Chevrolet Paint Shop's in-line repair booth, using a die-cut applied mask, tape and paper, where the hood and fenders (and header, fender extensions, and front valance) were mounted on a conveyor buck in car position. The decal "tail" portion of the stripe on the door was installed on the Final Line, after the front sheet metal had been installed and fitted.

The orig paint tail panels I have seen I would call  closer to gloss and not from polishing over the years. Definately not semi gloss.

But you definitely would not call the tailpanel full gloss. It's not the same gloss level as exterior gloss black. The easy test is you can't see a mirror like reflection in the tailpanel.
So it's agreed that it's somewhere in the mid-gloss range.
The easy place to check on an original paint car is in the trunk jamb under the weatherstripping......

Kurt, there is no helping Charley, as he is a full gloss advocate Smiley

After seeing the orig paint 67at Carlisle last year I would say the tail panels are gloss. The orig. gloss tail panels I have seen were shinier than the 67 at Carlisle. My only problem with looking around the trunk seal is sometimes it gets barely sprayed and it looks dry sometimes

Thanks John!

Any idea how they lined-up the door stripes ( decals ) with the painted stripes on the fenders?  Steve Shauger owns a low mileage '69 L/34 SS Camaro
( original paint ) that has the most unique set of fender D/90 stripes I've ever seen.  Someone must have been impaired when they installed the masks
on both fenders.  Perhaps you've seen this car ar the Camaro Nationals before......

Definately one for the "no way that was factory installed" crowd. Shocked

A simple plastic gage was hung on the door - a flange at the top hooked in the window opening, and they marked the door with a grease pencil at the bottom of the gage. That provided the theoretical up-down location of the "tail" end of the decal. Then the front of the decal was aligned to the end of the fender stripe, and the rear of the decal was aligned to the grease pencil mark; if it didn't look right, they did it "by eye". Lots of opportunity for variation.

i have owned and observed lots of these cars, i have never seen gloss glack on tail or rockers.  30% means 70% gloss 30% flatening agent.
that doesn't fly....by your logic 0% gloss (which is dead flat) would be 100% gloss and 0% flattening agent

When you got the blackout paint does the car have to have the same blackout rocker paint as well or could that be left body color? And I never saw the paint under the rubber molding near the trunk just the edge meeting the quarters

i will say this as a painter my self and my father worked for chevrolet in 1962 till 1975 and he said they were sprayed with Laquer with a flattening agent and they appeared semi gloss and that the reason some cars appear glossy now ( the cars with original paint) and i agree from experience is this: Laquer was made to be polished. If you rub something or wipe it or wash it enough over time the Dullest surfaces become very shiny. We have three original un painted RS/SS camaros and they are in fct Semi gloss on the rockers and the tail. Cheesy
