67RS do you have any pics of the under side of your car before and after you removed the undercoating?

I have a 69 Camaro that was taken to Ziebart the day after it was sold, and given the works.... So it just has loads of that undercoating all over.

I'm sure I do but they are in old time photo's and would have to dig them out. Life is so much easier now going digital isn't it

Here are pictures.  The first one is the car on its side in my garage, yes on a mattress.  The second one is the undercoat partially removed, but you can see where it was.  The rest are after undercoat was removed.  I'm sure I have more pictures, but have just been too busy to look.  Let me know what you think.

Very nice. The mattress must have been the cheaper alternative to a rotessire back in the day.. :D  Kind of the DIY way right?

I had the mattress at the time and didn't have a rotessire so it worked. It did take a long time to clean all that off. Do you think the undercoat was factory? I have nice clean floors now, no way would I want to cover them up again

To the best of my knowledge they were never fully undercoated from the factory. Many many dealers did them as a upgrade for customers like Gary said.
