I've seen the dust trail put high, low and in the center of the scoop. I have the factory buleprint but I still am confused. If I understand what I reading the bottom of the decal should be on the center line of the scoop. Is this correct? If so that puts the dust trial off center and more in line with the Road Runner Emblems behind the scoop. How far up from the front wheel well opening does the stripe get put?

According to the factory drawing in the other thread the "dust trail" V6Y stripe is NOT a straight line ..... it's an arc, it comes out of the "scoop" level then moves up hill (~1/2") toward the wheel opening - then back down (~3/8") to the bird on the front fender. WOW!!

(I'll "assume" the stripe makes the "arc" to avoid the fender wheel opening that the center stripe on a GTX just barely clears.)

And boy do they look bad when they're placed wrong, which is most of the time. The cars out of the factory had them all over the place though.

here is a thread that might help.

https://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/show...amp;Search=true

I read that thread and it still doesn't answer what is correct. That is where I Pulled the drawing from.

I guess the question is "where is the 0 inch line" that all the dimensions are referenced to?

I went home and tried to determine where the “zero inch line” (on that drawing from the other thread) would be for the vertical and horizontal measurements based on my 70RR with just a fender bird (not sure if original). Here’s what I got (and I don’t like it)…

Vertical zero is NOT the pinch weld, style line, door edge, wheel centers, or obvious frame points. As near as I can tell, it’s at the left side Chrysler symbol. I based this on laying down a masking tape “dust stripe” and measuring stuff and looking for landmarks approx 13.27” down. There is nothing else obvious on the side of the car. On a frame drawing from the service manual, “0” is measured as wheel center line. Not the same zero.

Horizontally I come up with zero being the front edge of the cowl! This is pretty close to having the fake scoop edge at +75” and puts the beak of the bird at -45” (per that factory blueprint). I wish it was again the pentagon but it’s not.

The bird on my car is NOT beaked at -45” but again I don’t think it is original or didn’t matter as there was no dust stripe.

The frame drawing shows some gauge holes on frame cross members but nothing really aligns with the +75” scoop placement.

I don’t like my answer. Having two different elements for zero lines makes no sense.
