Hood paint dimension question.
« on: February 11, 2006, 04:49:55 pm »
I have seen the hood paint dimensions on the B1 website but the measurments are for the sides, I think 1 and 5/16ths--not sure but my question is....Is it the same for the front of the hood.   Is the paint width the same around the entire hood--except the back.  

Would really like to hear from some original paint car owners or from someone that has had the same question answered..

I took measurements from my original hood striping and the numbers at the Boss Registry ( are good. A couple additional figures are:

a. distance from trim stripe {argent/black} to front hood edge w/o hood moulding attached = 1-5/16")

b. corner radius at front of hood - start stripe turn at 3-3/8" from front edge of hood (w/o moulding attached) and make your rollout 3-3/4" from the side edge of the hood to lline up 1-5/16" from front edge of hood.
