    Okay, I found this one, http://www.phoenixgraphix.com/gm/cam0008.htm

    But what kit does this on the spoiler, I like how it ends halfway on the spoiler.

    And will this kit work on my 75?

    They are fairly simple to lay out with 1/4" fine line tape. First spray the area where the stripe will be with the color of the stripe. Make sure you go further than the stripe will actually be.Then find the center point on the car and measure the width between the stripes. Run 1/4" fine line around the outer edge of the stripe. Remember what is under this tape will be the color of the car not the stripe.Then run another1/4" fine line tape on the inside of that one. This one you will pull off before you paint the car color. Run another row of fine line on the inside of that one. You should now have 3 rows side by side of 1/4" fine line tape the shape of the stripe you want. Pull off the center piece of fine line. This will make your 1/4" stripe that matches the car color on your stripe. Use a scotch brite pad and scuff the area that will be the main car color, prep and paint.

    why don't you get a kit for a 73 camaro?? It has the spoiler the way you like and the correct stripes that would look good on your car.

    If yours has the tall spoiler then I would order the one that is for the 73 with a tall spoiler. That one should be the one that ends in the lower 1/4" of the spoiler and has the rounded corners.

    I don't really know what the differences are between the Z28 or RS stripe, maybe just the width between the stripe??
    Either way, if you are looking for the stripe to end before is reaches the bottom of the tall spoiler then the one listed for the 70 short and 73 tall spoiler will do what you want.
