Restoration / Trunk Spatter - Sound Deadener
« on: July 11, 2021, 12:57:22 PM »
I realize there have been multiple topics, posts regarding trunk spatter however, I would like to suggest another thought regarding sound deadener application prior to the spatter paint process.

In researching trunk spatter paint and sound deadener on original, unrestored cars, it seems that the process may have been something like this:

- Sound Deadener was first applied to the inside of the quarter, forward of side marker and below quarter glass, possibly before quarter was welded on?

- Spatter may not have been a single process; Seems that there was a somewhat thick, stringy dark grey/black base applied first followed by the aqua speckle spatter operation.
- Possible that a thin coat of the Lord Fusor sound deadener was applied to trunk floor, quarter inner wheel housing (trunk side) prior to the spatter operation?

Appreciate hearing what others have discovered on this topic.

Did the factory ever use shims between the Trunk Lid and Hinges on '67-69 Camaros?
