    Ken, I'll try to send pictures and dimesions off my 70 project- from what I can tell quickly is that the stripes on a Non- RS car go to the front of the header embem, and RS cars go approximately to the middle of the header emblem.

    Here are a few pics I have of an original paint, Van Nuys built, Non-RS, 1970 Z28. These are the best I have that show the stripes.

    I know this has been discussed before but notice how the stripes end the same as the stripes on Charlies car at the base of the rear window.

    thanks for all the help. from looking at both the cars the stripes go out further on the valance than the aim is calling for. if you can get me close on some deminsions i can go from there. if any way possible lets see the difference in what the aim is calling for [2.82-3.32] and the stripes shown. maybe i can come up with a template of some kind for future reference. if anyone has an orig. paint car you might be able to lay some tracing paper down and trace the outline of the stripes.

    IIRC the "Camaro restoration handbook" has the differences and placements between RS and Non-RS Z28 Rally Stripes. I think the non RS stripes are angled more and or they go further down the header panel a inch or two more in relation to the header panel emblem. I'll dig up the book

    NOTE THE DIFFERENCES in the original paint car above and this repaint:

    also note that the repaint car ^ has the Z28 emblem placed oddly, as MOST cars do. I guess it is hard to figure out where it is supposed to be for some reason ... ?

    with no set in concrete demensions and just pics to go by this is what i came up with. they end right at the forward edge of the header emblem. seems like every orig. paint car has a little variance in the non r/s stripes.
