I am going to paint LeMans strips on my 66 fastback in the next couple of weeks. I have the diagram that shows the dimensions of the strips.

What I need to understand is;
- Do I paint the strips into the jam area of the trunk or stop just outside the jam area?

- Do I paint the strips into the hood jam area or stop just outside the jam area?

Pictures would be very helpful!

Thanks!

What I'd love to know is if there was a 'spec' given to dealers for painting them on (since that's where the vast majority of Shelby's received their Le Mans stripes)...

I've noted on show cars that it varies how far the stripes go into the 'jam' area; so I'd love to know the real 'truth' on this...

From what I've seen & sprayed I think around 3/8" into the trunk & hood area. I don't know if this is correct, but it looks good.
