We discourage the use of the 70/72 stencil stripe kits on other year cars because the template takes into consideration the bulge of SS and Cowl Induction hoods. It is best to mask off the correct width as outlined in the assembly manual for 1970. Keep in mind that your resale may suffer because the unoriginal stripe layout.
late in 69, Chevy offered a twin stripe option. The dim. are diff. than the 70-72. This is what my restoration book states:
1969 Twin Hood & Deck Stripe Specifications
DIMENSION HOOD DECKLID
Width (in inches)
Main stripe 10.7 10.64
Pinstripe 0.25 0.3
Space between stripes 0.3 0.25
Distance from end of stripe
to edge of panel
Main stripe 1.55 1.38
Pinstripe 1.0 0.8
Overall centering dimensions
Outward from centerline 1.8 1.68
Inward from outer hood
The hood stripes were painted over both ends of the panel. The deck stripes do not extend past the edge of the deck lid. Gloss black and white were the only two colors available. Good Luck!!!!!!!!
Contrary to wat U have seen in Paul Herds Book,,,, the 70 landing stripes were NEVER offered on a 69,,,from the factory,,this is the same type fictional rumor as the SS 427 in 67,,,, L89SEDAN,,,, PS Dont put em on your car,,,they just make it look like a wanna B,,,, :0) my opinion only :0) L89SEDAN
I don't think hood and deck stripes were available from the factory. On the other hand say it was Nov. 69 and you wanted a 69 Chevelle and you told the Chevy dealer the only way that you would buy it was to put those cool looking 70 Chevelle stripes on it. I think they could have put them on in the body shop. Is it stock, I don't think so, but someone would argue it.

Although I don't have it here in front of me, I don't believe Herd's book says that skunk stripes were a factory option in 69. It states that they were a dealer installed option available late in the model year.
