    So here is a pic of how our car came with the black stripe on the bottom of the door and rocker panel.
    Is this correct?

    Black paint

    I'm pretty sure the black paint was only on the rockers and was not on the lower doors

    Thanks. Next question. Does anyone have a picture of the decal location on the door / rocker panel? I assume I’ll need a shop manual to get all the information on locations.

    That’s awesome thanks. No rush, it will be a few weeks before we’re ready to put them on.

    I thought these photos of my original 1978 Z28 might be helpful. Hope your restoration goes fine for you.

    Thanks for the help guys. Yet another question. Does the black paint on the rocker continue all the way under and up on the floor or does it stop on the bottom of the rocker and then body color starts?
