I have a Norwood 69 Z Olympic Gold RS car that is at the painter now, and I need to confirm or get your comments on the following:
1. Currently, there is surface rust on the underside of the car, but I can see gray primer in various areas that had oil etc. had leaked on the underside of the car.
2. I understand that some cars came from the factory with gray primer as my car has on the underside and others were painted black. I see many cars that have been restored painted black on the underside, but not many with the gray primer.
Is it correct for the underside to have the gray primer then the body color overspray then the black overspray due to the RS option?
A few months back there was a Lemans Blue RS Z car that was a high point car that had a gray primer underside with the overspray as I have explained. If anyone remembers that car and discussion was that car done right?
As has been stated there were large variations between cars and also plants. The Vintage Judging program certifies unrestored cars. We are are in the Y building as well at the Camaro Nationals @Carlisle. Participating this year we have five unrestored, which provide a wealth of information on what techniques and finishes were used by the factory. You are welcome to stop by and view these cars and ask any questions you may have.
This is the event to participate or spectate in if you want to see some example of the finest camaros.
