The deck stripes narrow down towards the front and rear of the car. They are not the same width all the way through.

Here is how I did mine.


I did the same width front to back. 11 1/8" wide and 7 1/4" apart. *measurements taken to the outer part of the 1/4" pinstripe* They are centered over the bulges, and between the body lines in front. The rears were done to match the front.
