    Look at Phil Borris's COPO above. You can also email Rich Pern rdpern@aol.com from the camaros.net forum, he owns a 70 COPO Z28 and has the build sheet to his. Also Jerry MacNeish has certified COPO's. I dought that GM painted a Z28 rear spoiler with curved corners and straight down when they built COPO Z28's.

    Here's a 70 COPO Z28 pic taken in '71.

    Here's a COPO build sheet. I believe it's Rich Pern's since he posted it on the sYc forum http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=192087&page=all

    The rear stripes on this car look like the way Van Nuys did them.
    The rear stripes on this 70 Z28 in this magazine article appear to be the way they were done in Norwood. Different width (tapered), center spacing, and the outside of the stripe parallels the outer trunk line.

    Old thread but I have a question. 71 Z28 that came from the dealership new with the small rear spoiler, no RS package, Norwood built in April of 71. I have been told the rear stripes go the entire width of the trunk lid and and the stripes on the one piece spoiler line up with the part of the trunk that is visible below the spoiler. No radius.

    I don’t understand what your saying here but the pic you posted is wrong. The trunk lid below the spoiler should not be painted when you ordered a 1 piece spoiler from the factory. But if it was ordered without a rear spoiler then added later then the stripes would be visible below the spoiler cause a non rear spoiler Z28 was striped all the down to the end of the lid where it opens at the rear. The stripe dimensions are the same for a 70-71 Z28 built in Norwood with the 1 piece spoiler.

    Here’s a pic I took in 1975 of my 71 Z28 built in Norwood.
