I have an Allison Daytona truck that's going into paint TOMORROW, and I'm looking for someone with the original stripes still intact. Hoping to get a measurement of the stripe thickness on the front fenders, just at the thinnest point. Also the distance between them. I'm trying to duplicate the original stripes as accurately as possible, and any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Nobody? Paint got put off till Monday. If anyone still has the original stripes, I could really use your help. Thanks!

this is the only Allison truck I have on file that shows the stripes well enough for your needs

This is the nose of a regular Daytona and it gives you a better idea of the striping, I think that truck pic I posted has had some work done on the nose as I don't think the white area around the license is factory so here is some better detail

Tony, sorry I never saw this. Hope it all turned out good.
My stripes were generally 3/8 of an inch thick.  3/8 space from top edge of fender, 3/8 space between stripes.
Hope this helps anyone else.
KEEP THE ALLISON STRIPES ALIVE!
