To start laying out the stripes, John will need a centerline. He first finds the center on the back of the hood by measuring from each edge of the cowl. The front is a bit easier as the hood comes to a point. This is also where John tries a few strip sizes and spacing combinations. The final version that looked the best with the lines of the Camaro was 15 1/4-inch-wide stripes with 53/8-inches separating the two.
