    I'm starting the layout of the stripes. What a PITA this is!!!!! It probably isn't for those talented painter types. Haha

    Getting that very slight taper right so they look straight but really aren't is an art!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    It sure is. I need to get some green 3M tape before I go any farther. Maybe I can get the deck lid done this weekend.

    Just now catching up on the thread again…..nice work Ryan!!!!


    Stripes can be a giant PIA to get right but sure set a car off. At least your not masking off flames!


    Love the pictures and stories of yours and Charlies' cars.

    Yes, the flames would be a challenge for sure! Luckily I know a couple of guys that can handle that if I ever get back on the 40....

    I knew I'd seen them, and a quick Google found a picture of the first GT350 stripe dimensions. May not help, but it shows how they get wider on the hood & deck lid at the back, fade back across the top.

    You should be getting close to getting sick of that thing by now. I'll give you double what you paid for it after you get the stripes on.

    LMFAO! Not quite. Especially at double what I paid for it. I doubt I ever sell this. Well, maybe trade it for a 70 Cuda. Haha

    I spent some late hours getting the stripes the rest of the way masked off and then late last night I finally got them sprayed. The high humidity sure made that fun.....

    Now I just have to paint the hood, then lay it out. That will be a bit more difficult as I want to go around the raised portion of the scoop. It's yet to be decided.

    I'm still undecided but I am thinking of waiting a couple of weeks and weathering the stripes. I used flat paint to try and match the old paint. I'll have to see what it looks like in the sun.

    Here are a couple of interior shots. I still have to put on the new front door panels and I got Morris classic retractable seat belts for the front, and some off brand black lap belts for the rear. I also need to find my old stereo to put in it. But that can wait. I need to start accumulating miles on it.

    I know what you mean about the striping. I spent 2 days doing my 68 it had strips on the sides and hood top of front fenders. What we did was paint the car the base color then taint he strips the same color but 3 more coats then cleared it I think 3 times. then sanded and recleared. Depending on where you were looking at the car what strips you could see. I don't think I have any of those pictures as my X got them and that was 27 years ago.

    That thing is looking awesome Ryan! I think our next trip to Des Moines is going to be an overnighter. If I swing by do I get to drive it ? :-)

    I'm not sure. I haven't put an extinguisher in it yet.
