I know it is an older topic but I have a question on the front wheel wells. Having completed the task of removing all the goop we are re coating the rears as suggested ,I am thankful for the advice on leaving the floor pans and tunnel clean ( beautiful un- molested 45 year old sheet metal , IMO should be seen ) I know the rears are a must ,but is it acceptable (judging) to leave the fronts clean ,If not is the correct pattern 12:00 to rear ? Wonderful site , have been following for years and finally decided to pull the trigger on my Z , original 34k numbers car in family 37 years with documentation and full history. Me and the car aren't getting any younger ,time to start enjoying it ! Also a wise man suggested going Day 2 ,perfect for me. Will post pics later.
