I'm just finishing up my 68 fastback and wanted to add the optioned hood stripes, not the rally stripes. I lost the web site with the correct width for these stripes. Does anyone know how wide they are? They go from the turn signal hood indicators to the windshield.
Thanks for any help!!

When you mask off the hood for stripes, use the center peak as a guide and keep the inner side of the stripe the same distance from the peak all the way to the w/shield. Then, with a pencil measure your 13" at points along the hood and cowl for your other line. It'll keep you from getting messed up with the hood curvature. A tip: mask off and cover the cowl under the hood and the backside of the hood. For the cowl, allow about a 1/4" for the paint to blow in and then mask it off. This way you'll have no overspray and fuzzy lines on cowl Also, for a neater job it is best to remove the vents and paint the black portion off the car.The grilles were the t/signal lites are is black, Run your tape line along the edge of the vent housing over the grilles for the break off point. I did the stripes on a yellow 68. In the instructions on the illlustration, they mention using lacquer. DON'T do that as lacquer is NOT compatalbe with the newer paints. In fact, it was meant to go over other lacquer or a factory baked paint. A pic of those stripes was on the reader pics but I asked Steve to take them off as car was sold.
