Here are more pics of the black car with white stripes showing the mist from the blow in.

Excellent pictures. Thanks a lot for posting.  I've passed them onto my painter. Would you guys do a tight line where the black should be fogged in or make it as the pictures depict?

I would do it similar to the cars produced around the date of your car, and the plant your car was produced at.

Early norwood cars were much sloppier and some had a good deal of mist down the firewalls, the black car is a 4/24 production date and is much neater than earlier,

The black stripe cars did not have as much of a visual problem with overspray showing as the white striped cars.
Regarding LA I have little experience in their stripes.

So a black stripe car would have the same technique a white stripe car had, at least for a Norwood car anyway.

Okay, i guess I'll have him 'fog' the black over the yellow. My car is a January-3rd week Z/28.

Did you take any before pictures of the firewall?
I wouldn't be surprised if there were some yellow mist with the black over it on the top of the vertical and roll over like in the picture of the Gold/black stripe Z I posted earlier.

If you study this, realize there are 2 different black paints here, the firewall black that has a fine gold mist over the top 1-2" of the firewall, by fine I mean a 5% coverage max. Then You have CODE 10 GLOSS Black stripe color leading to the edge on the cowl top. Looking at it knowing there are 3 different paints and where they are should help you and your painter understand what should be where. Who's on first?



 if you look very close you can see the fine gold mist it looks almost like dust.



Yours probably had some yellow where the gold is here, blacks shot the same.

Thanks Kurt. This Daytona yellow Z was built the same day as my burnished brown one. Amazing how sloppy the factory was. Twenty years ago, If you paid someone 50k to restore your car, and got it back looking like that you would be pissed! Now, not so much!!
