    Stripes! Not bad for a first timer laying them out lol

    Parts are dusty, it's not in the clear itself

    Here's what it looked like taping it out...I tossed the phenix graphics kit as it was junk. Save yourself the $100 and line it out with 1/4" fine line tape

    Your stripe job looks freakin awesome!

    I do have a question, how did you maintain a consistent radius in your turns? That is one of the many facets of putting down stripes that concerns me.

    I plan on a Baldwin Motion paint scheme, but the Z28 stripes are a key part of that design so I have your stripe work bookmarked for further reference.

    Keep up the good work...looks awesome!

    I kind of cheated a bit and used the phoenix graphics kit as a template on the radius before ripping those stencils off to free hand the rest.

    To keep it consistant it was a lot of eyeballing, removing and eyeballing until I got it looking good. To make the double lines flow evenly use some 1/4" masking tape between them. Then remove the masking tape

    spraying some new semi-gloss black on the cowl to get ready to install the new screen, bump stops and wiper arms.
