Im not sure what spoiler I have. Here is a picture
I did what this guy did. Get thin 5mm blue automotive masking tape and study existing photos to lay out the stripes correctly. You just need a good eye. Clean existing paint work, scuff with 800 paper, carefully mask and spray with rattle can. If you do the bonnet first and follow the tape on to the front valence, it will be perfect. If you want it under clear coat go to a body shop and supervise them with your photos in hand!

You have the tall spoiler.
Be very careful buying stencils for a car that has a cowl induction hood! NONE of the 2nd gen Camaros came with factory cowl hoods, so unless a company is selling a particular stencil kit designed for a cowl hood that's the same height as your cowl hood it wont lay out correctly.
If you're planning on keeping your stock hood, then any stencil kit will work. I personally would not spend the money buying a stencil kit. I can give you all the stock measurements for the factory SS stripes from the assembly manual.
I agree with using the 1/4" fine line tape to mask up the stripes. I did that on my car since it has the Goodmark cowl hood on it and I think it came out fine.
In retrospect I should have painted most of the car white, masked up the stripes and painted the black on top since the black would cover easier but I did the opposite.
You can see pics here (http://rides.webshots.com/album/177965167Qsgirp).
As you can see, I ran out of wide tape so I had to use a lot of thin tape to cover up some of the sections. Hope that helps and good luck!
I have the regular RS hood. And I already placed the order.
So we'll see how it works...
