Have a 1969 Camaro Z28 that has been certified by Jerry MacNeish. One of the corrections that need to be done that was
reported in the certification was: "Lower Rocker Area should be painted semi/gloss black below the rocker molding". Car was
repainted years ago and all that area was painted "Hugger Orange" the original color. Enclosed is a picture of the area. Can
someone please post a picture how it should look? What kinda black should be applied. Eg. like Rustoleum 7777 or ??. Please
comment on this. Thanks--Larry

Do a little searching on the site, there are some good threads on proper finish ( % gloss) and were to mask off to get it correct. Seems like it was a hot topic a few months ago. Assuming RS package ?

janobyte: Have tried search but coming up MT; can not find the wording of that thread so search would work. FYI  Larry

Yes; thanks to Cook DW for picture. Did find some info on the "Search". Type of the color Black is still in question. To me it looks like a
Satin Black. (Like Rustoleum 7777) Will go with that unless I hear different. Larry

 I don't think you can do any better than GM Reconditioning Black as far as matching the correct gloss level and texture goes.

It's really not a semi gloss, Here is an untouched unexposed place on a 69 SS showing there is a reflection and a good bit of gloss.

Its not really semi gloss but more of a flat gloss.  The black should end underneath the chrome rocker trim about in the middle.  I went through this when my car was certified by Jerry and it has been at the nationals last year with the correction that was done approved.

I agree with Mike S....    GM reconditioning black will be good for that area.. :)

This project is turning out to be more complex then what I thought at the beginning. Here is a few loose end questions for our members.

1) I assume that all trim is to be taken off like the trim around the front wheel wheels and the chrome rocker trim; correct?

2) All bolts should be removed before the paint; correct?

3) Hard to tell by pictures given but the black on the panel (where the panel turns horizontal) is consistent throughout. This means
    when the factory done it the body of the car was up in the air. If car was down lower I would assume the black paint would
    be heavier on the end then lighter as it gets towards the frame. Correct? If yes then a "lift" would be needed to do the job.

All comments are welcomed and thanks.  Larry
