    I am looking for some help on hood stripes for my 02D assy date Van Nuys Z28. Does anyone have dimensions,pictures etc. on when they stopped painting cars with the short stripes?
    I am starting to prepare for getting my car painted and I want it to be as correct as possible. I know there were feb van nuys cars painted with stripes that stopped short of windshield edge of hood.I have an original trunk lid so I am good with that info. I know the assy manual covers Norwood cars.
    Please keep info to early 70van nuys cars. Thanks in advance!!

    Here is Charley’s 03-70 LA 70 Z28 he bought from the orig owner and sold. Orig paint and orig 1,129 miles. http://www.1970z28camaro.com/body/
    The hood is full and the rear deck is short. Weird.

    So based of Charlie’s 03c which was assembled 3 weeks after mine his car had the front stripes that were full. Anyone have info on cars assembled prior to his date?
    The rear seemed to continue With the pictures from this post so I’m good there.
    Thanks
