Need LA Experts - paints, undercarriage, and primers
« on: December 15, 2006, 03:09:33 AM »
New to this site, but have been dealing with some our our hobbiest finest - thanks Kurt S.  In process of restoring my 69 BB Camaro.  It's a 12C build of 68.  It's an LA car.  I have read (over and over and over) all the post on this topic - but it seems everyone caveots their reply with "....Noorwood car..."

If I've missed a link, and LA cars have been dicussed, please point me in the right direction.  If not, can you guys help?  Car goes into paint booth next week. My goal is to be as original as possible and we want to create as authentic restoration as possible.

Q1.  Did LA use the same sealer color as NOR (black?)
Q2.  What color primer was used inside the car, and under the car?
Q3.  Were LA cars "squirted" with color using the same process as NOR cars?  Ie, at waist level producing the same "overspray effect" as a NOR car?
Q4.  NOR cars got a shot of undercoating in the rear (and front?) wheel weels.  Did LA cars as well, or was that a "regional" plant process?
Q5.  Was any "semi-gloss" paint used on any part of the final paint other than the Firewall, and the rear Black out panel?
