Factory Rally Stripe Dimensions...definitive answer?

I am taking my car in to have factory style rally stripes painted on this Friday and told the shop that I could provide some basic dimensions for them to work off of. However, checking back here on Camaro5 I can't seem to find the thread I ran across before where a member actually measured the dimensions of the stripes. Every other thread I have run across searching has shown variation in measurements. Can anybody link me to a thread that has the actual dimensions of the factory rallys? Or can somebody please post these dimensions? I am only looking for the measurements on the factory style stripes (not tranformers style/concept style). Any help on this is extremely appreciated.

Measurements needed:

1.) Space between hood stripes ( I have been told it's 3", 1.5" each way off center line)

2.) Width of large stripes on hood & decklid (at cowl & rear glass).

3.) Width of pinstripe outline.

4.) Space between main stripe & pinstripe (I've been told it's 1/4')


Thanks in advance for any clarification on these measurements. I'm sure this question will be asked again many times on this forum until there is a good thread will all relevant measurements..........and then it will still be asked by those who choose not to use the search function!

seems like there were several suppliers to gm because the gm stripes aren't even all the same....but yes the center gap is 3", back of the hood is 16.5"(outside of pinstripe), the trunk lid narrows from back window 12 5/8 down to 12 3/8(outside of pinstripe), the pinstripe is 1/4" with 1/4" gap.....hope that helps.

Thank you.

Thanks very much for the response on this! Car is going in Friday morning. I ended up going with a variation on the white stripes. I'm going with Frost White Pearl (similar to White Diamond Pearl on the Caddy, but a bit less silvery and more white). I will post pics next week when I pick the car up.
