I can't see the wheels that well, but they appear to be the standard Z28 wheels with a custom center cap on them.

The MP cars used alot of different style's of wheels, from Z28 wheels to Torque Thrust D's to Cragars, its all in what pics you find from what era but I have seen alot with the Z28 wheels.

As for the striping there are no repro stencil kits available it will have to done freehand by a painter. But a good painter will be able to accomodate your wishes with a good picture to copy from.

They also used an L88 hood which is an unusual hood but most manufacturers make them only in fiberglass and most people don't like them. I have one and personally love mine but each Camaro is different just like their owners. My Camaro looks very similar to the red and black one you posted just is missing the striping down the side. We have played with idea ourselves to make a MP look alike and in fact are talking about it now

A good resource for Motion cars is to check out www.yenko.net message board.

okay here is some info ,all motion cars were never painted the same the location of the stripes varied from car to car ,and no there is no stencil available. there were 4 different variations of the stripes .the one in your link that is for a Z28 "dual stripes off the rear deck" .an SS would have one single stripe at the rear deck.THE Z30 motion camaro again had different stripes like the L88 hood painted a solid color other than the hood itself.the Z50 ZLX baldwin motion camaro also had it's own distinctive striping also.the best way is to go to http://www.yenko.net then go to the muscle car forum then drop down to the baldwin motion forum.look for the post by me "muscl car" on Z30 sbc engine compartents.this post has alot of attachments "pics" of b/motion cars.now the wheels ,they used everything from stock 5 spoke Z28 whls.to cragar ss,ansen sprint aluminum mags,us mags and indy mags .the tires joel used were either mickey thompson indy profile L50-15 to N50-15 tires for the rear and stock L78-15's for the front
