I didn't see the question before I posted. lol
Yes, they're for painting a dx or straight bar with the same paint scheme. Pretty cool the way they work. I've seen other photos of this style stencil, but not the one for the top bar. Barry

This one has the number 36 on it. I bet they had a lot of these clamps made up, one or maybe more for each painting boot?
