What are most doing? Paint or strip kit?

Where is the lower body line? On the edge of a color or in the middle of a color?

I do mine in paint. I believe most people do. The yellow car I did only had the wide stripe since it had the decor trim.

A couple more questions sorry. Is the color change at the body line or lower? And how wide are the stripes? 1/4”?

I believe it varied.  As shown on the yellow car, it hit just below the bend for the decor group.

If you did not get the decor group, the rocker pant was the same I believe.  The decal actually had 2 stripes, one about 1/2 inch wide and then the 1/4 inch stripe offset by 1/4 inch.  That wider part of the tape stripe would overlap the rocker paint to form a blend and lift the color to the rocker bend on the body.

Now please take my dimensions with a grain of salt as I have not measured.

I have a 72 mach 1 with the original side argent and stripe I can get photos of maybe tomorrow, pouring ran now.
I also have a 73 vert with Décor Group. The door opening is not just a straight line taped of There was actually still masking tape under the scuff plate when I pulled it off. Also the rear and front valance was on when they did the black.
They also missed a huge spot on the R.H. quarter panel that nobody ever notices but bigger than your hand.
You also have the black at each tail light opening if a Mach 1, vert or Décor group and the rear underside of the hood. All of the black was done first then masked off then the color applied. makes since less to mask off. The hood rear bottom edge was sprayed after color. Also you have the cowl and engine compartment.
The Décor Group black had runs all over the place on my original car.
On a 73 Mach 1 with black side stripes they sprayed black around the front side marker lights and the light frame was black.
