I was just wondering if anyone has any pics of the original penstripe pattern on a '83 280zx. I have two that supposedly are original but the stripes are different. Was there more than one pattern. I have to send the car to the body shop and I want it to come out looking exactly like it did from the factory. Is this something that the shop will have access to? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Adam

Pinstripes

Just like today, Z cars pinstriping came in several different 'packages'. Best way I know of to figure it out is to get old sales brochures for, in your case, the '83 model year. They usually show examples of all the various trim packages for coupe and 2+2. I found the ones for my cars at various car swap meets and eBay. You might try some of the car publication websites (books4cars.com, etc.) for examples online. Seems like body shops SHOULD have sources like that, but I don't know that they do.
