Hey everyone!

I need some ideas on striping schemes. I'm keeping the color the same (as my wife won't let me change it). So, please give me some suggestions on stripes. Sample pictures would be awesome!

Thanks everyone!

I say keep it classic like the pics Diana put up. The yellow Camaro stripes on your car would be too modern and you would have to change your rims ( 18s and 20s tall and wide) stance (slammed to the ground) and some other things to make it look right.Just my opinion, gonna be nasty either way!

I'm with Big Booty......

Partial to the '69 SS/RS Black car with the white hockey sticks. That, to me, screams Original.

Another thing that kills me is that every Camaro has "Z28"/"SS" style stripes that run from the front to the back. While its a timeless look, it makes every Camaro look just like the next one.

Doing something like Diana/Mike Travers/Ahem...Andre did with that design is completely HOT and out of the box. While making the car "theirs," it also tells people that you mean business and that your car isn't just one fish outta the school of them.

One thing I totally plan on doing on our next 1st Gen is installing Houndstooth Interior.......Yellow, Orange , White, Black, it doesn't matter....that stuff is the Bees Knees!!!

Just a thought....

Yes, I like that one also, and here's another slightly different one from one of our local shows.

Ocikat: I like this one. I was even thinking of starting the stripe(s) just off of center, then running as shown. In other words, the stripe on the header would have a gap of an inch or two. Interesting...

Thanks for the feedback.

Not much to update. The Camaro is on the lift in the Paint Shop. One of the Body Techs has been assigned (ordered by Jim) to start work. He is to perform some metal work underneath to clean up the floor pan replacement that I had done back in 1989.

The subframe is to go out for sand blasting hopefully this coming week. Once done, it'll get cleaned up (metal work) and painted.

Once the underneath is complete, it'll get primed, undercoated, primed, and painted.

Then, the real work will begin. The new parts will be added.

Speaking of parts, a bunch more came in. Mostly bolts, fuel line, brake lines, etc. Stuff we didn't think we needed until tear down.

I'm now starting to feel the pinch. Alot of $$s going into this now.

Alot...alot...

Those questions are like askin what color underwear somebody's wife is wearin.

I can tell you that Southwest Speed saved him a handful of Jacksons on his Autometer setup...

It's going to be a nice project and sick ride when he's done. It was already a nice car.
