Huge thanks to @Carolina_Mountain_Mustangs for the detailed info of his blackout write up. Hopefully i didn’t butcher your name. Contact him directly for the write up! The stencil I had wasn’t too horrible but having references and measurements were helpful especially on how far forward to place it.
 

will post another video soon! Be sure to subscribe if you wanna follow the build!

Looks Great!! I see you're not rushing it and are being very methodical in your attention to detail. Great job!!! :goodjob:  

By the way, what stencil did you use?

Thank you!
I am actually not too sure as it was something that was in a box of parts that came with the car. I’ll see if I can find any paperwork on it

Hood stencil is looking great.   Don't forget when you shoot the rest of the black,  to paint the inside edge of the tail lights where the honeycomb goes.

Also here a few pics of the original 71 I painted a few years ago. I copied exactly where the factory blackout went to in the doors jambs. I’m pretty sure they changed them slightly in 72. Yours will go a little higher on the body since this car has the decor trim and yours does not.  You car is looking great!! Keep up the good work.
