John Z.  Does you car with the houdstooth trunk mat have a rectangular sound deadening tar type material mat glued on the trunk floor where the trunk floor starts to slope up to go over the rear axle?  If it does, was the mat applied before or after the spatter paint?  I have a 68 deluxe interior car that has the sound deadening mat but at one point in its life the trunk was resprayed and so was the mat.  I am restoring the trunk but don't know if the mat gets covered with the spatter paint.  Thanks for the help.

Yes, it has the deadener mat, and it's not spatter-painted; the deadener mat was applied in the Fisher Trim Shop, after paint.

When I restored my 69Z back in 1995 - 2000, Risk's First Gen had some GM NOS "touch-up" splatter paint.  I used this because at that time, no one had formulated correct spatter paint.  I need to touch mine up but do not have any paint left!!  Attached are few picks. 

Mine looks a bit lighter in color than John Z's, but given the mix in the can vs. that sprayed at the assy plant, I suspected differences.

PS: Does anyone sell correct rear seat dividers for rear fold down seats? I have send originals that are black with a tar-like paint on them.

Here is one more pic with a little more detail of the color....

JohnZ - would you mind posting a few more pics showing the splatter paint spray pattern from different views about your trunk?

So is the "correct" paint water based like the rattle can stuff?  Was the factory spatter paint also water based? (it would seem so in some cars I've had that ended up with wet floors).

What kind of pressure gun do you shoot Larrys trunk paint with. A HVLP or a shotz gun.

When I had my 69 trunk sprayed with Larrys paint, we tried to use HVLP paint gun but it kept plugging up the tip. We had to switch to a shotz gun. I can't remember what pressure we used. The shotz gun gave it a more original looking pattern then the paint gun did.

was there a difference from the 67's to 69"s or were they all the same?
