    Thanks, dude. Many don't know that these stripes were functional for Gymkhana (autocross) and road racers in the mid 60s and early 70s. While racing, your peripheral vision could see the stripes and give you feedback as to how your suspension was working. You could determine body roll, then adjust shocks, tire pressure, etc.

    uhm, no. They are FIA stripes and were used for recognizing different cars from the same race team when coming in to the pits. Sometimes they were put on the steering wheel side only to denote which hand-drive the car was. First use on Corvette Grand Sports in early 60's. Has nothing to do with suspension travel.

    Congrats
