    I am looking for information on the stripe on the 1972 hood. The small painted stripe that is in the center of the hood, does it continue all the way up and over the scoop or does it stop at each end of the scoop? A detail photo of the rear portion would be helpful. Thanks.

    The '72 had a unique paint scheme, the competition black area was painted behind the scoop insert with two lines that extended forward and over the upper valance. Dearborn Classics has a decal that takes care of the upper valance section, the hood is painted as shown in the photos below:



    A lot of folks fill in the area including the scoop insert and the front section.
