Z28 cowl paint (and Z11/Z10)
« on: December 07, 2015, 03:05:44 AM »
This probably could be in originality section. :)
How the cowls are painted on Z-striped cars is often discussed. So here's some pics.

Here is an original owner yellow car. 05A NOR



The green one is not my Z, but it's really close. Mine has a bit more white on the driver's side, but it clearly fades away to the green underneath just like this car.


Pacers were done differently.
Picture courtesy of SCW / Brian Henderson.  03B NOR
They really didn't want the orange everywhere on the NOR pacers so they were masked off. I've seen LOS pacers with coverage all over the top of the cowl.

great pics on that yellow car. Looks like a gloss black on the cowl, and then goes to more of a flat on the firewall.

See a lot of white striped painted cars, but are black striped cars even painted considering the cowl is black? Just curious. My Silver with black stripes don't seem to have ANY over spray in the wiper motor well area, under the cowl panel. I can't say much for what the past owners of my car did, but the wiper area is untouched.

Yes the black stripe cars are painted in this manor as well.  I can't speak for all because different times of the year and different plants, but I can tell you for certain mine is this way and is unrestored.
  12D Norwood and the top of my cowl definitely has gloss black sprayed on the top of the cowl and it quickly fades to a flatter black as it transitions to the firewall.   It's much harder to see but as I'm carefully cleaning this car it became apparent there are 2 different blacks there.
  I would imagine restored black stripe cars probably don't even bother with this little detail so you won't see many done this way (shucks even white stripe cars aren't done this way on most restorations that I see).  I will duplicate this however just as I see it on mine.  Very easy to fade it in being black and black, and will likely go unnoticed by most people.

Edit:  If it helps verify, I just noticed the very first picture that Kurt put in the first post.  You can clearly see the gloss black on top of the cowl that fades to the flatter black, on a black stripe car.  Much later car than mine but appears to be very close to the same.  However mine has much better coverage of the black as I can see no frost green showing through anywhere on the cowl or firewall area.  Guess they were much more generous with the blackout that day on my car.
