Re: Help A Fella Out. Please.
Does anyone have the measurements for the hood and deck stripes for a 72 chevelle. :thumbsup:
April 1970, the width of the larger stripes were supposedly
changed. On the early 70's they were 10.64 inches wide on the hood and deck and narrowed to 9.63 inches after
April 1970 Pin stripes were .30 inches wide on the hood and the deck. Post
-April 1970 Pin stripes were the same at .30 inches wide.
Too ensure those numbers are correct, do what the other members suggested and purchase an AIM. Several vendors that sell those stencil kits specify they are for Post
-April 1970 cars, which I feel are the narrower stripes vs. the wider ones, and those vendors specify they differ as well.
I recently purchased a stencil kit that was advertised for 1970-1972 Chevelles. Prior to ordering it, I called the vendor and I had him physically measure his stripe kit for MY car and he told me it was 10-5/8 inches wide. Knowing that, if the Post
-April 1970 striped cars were in fact 9.63 inches wide, then that stripe kit would be incorrect for them.
Do your homework.
I also measured my wide stripes on my 1970 SS (assembled and delivered to me in February 1970)
, and that number comes in at 10-5/8 inches wide.
(I also suggest that you edit the subject line for your question as Chris recommended, so you'll receive additional input).
Hope that helps!
