    I know I have looked for this information before without luck, so I’m just posting this for future people restoring a 70 Gsx.

    This came off an original owner 1970 Gsx that’s spoiler was replaced due to the delamination probably pictured in my photographs hope this helps someone out .
    Not professional photographs but you can see by some of the wavy lines in the pinstriping that these were down the line production items that a whole Lotta time was not spent on .

    Factory GSX stripes were hand applied. It was a get it done quick third shift deal from what I hear. It is well known there are mid matched stripes where stencils were applied and overspray on door handles.

    Yes Sir, a big 10-4 on that! Just thought it might be interesting to some folks since many are now restored thus erasing the “Ho hum just another car” application back in the day : )
