My Norwood 69Z was built 1st week of May. It is LeMans Blue and the underside was a gray primer color with a speckle, light gray/white color, particularly thru the middle area of the trans tunnel. When I removed the fuel line clips along on the inside area of the frame rails, it was gray. I should have taken more pics under the gas tank area but this area appeared to be painted black. This may have been done during a repaint years earlier. Unfortunately I only have 35mm pics of these. I need to scan them and have the available in digital format. Thus, I had my underside painted gray in about 30% gloss.
I was told that through the production run of 69's out of Norwood, the undersides have been seen in several colors: black, gray and a greenish gray color.
John Z….Is there any truth to this? Did it depend on the top body color, or was this simply variations in batch primer colors?
