Hey guys, we are going to start the actual
paint process on Monday. It looks like my "parole" from paint prison has been granted!
Anyhow. I was going over how and what to paint on the car and have a few areas that I am not sure about. The car is an original butternut yellow 1967 RS conv. with custom buckets code, small block 327.
I have a few areas that I can't find info on.
1.) I know that the RS rocker panels were black (depending on what the original car color was) and the the 6 piece trim goes above the black rockers. What color black is acceptable? 30% 60% gloss, chasis black? Also, more importantly, how does the original paint blend on the inside of the door to the rocker?
2.) The trunk will eventually get spatter paint. Black/Aqua is what I came up with for 1967. What is under the Black/Aqua spray in the trunk area? black primer? Also I have read on this site that the shakers do not get spatter. Then I read in Hoopers book that they are spattered. Confused on this one.
3.) The outside of the fenders will be butternut yellow. What were the inside
fenders painted? Were they painted or just primed? Should there be overspray on the prime or paint inside the fender? If there is overspray, how much? If you have pictures, they might help. I am leaning to keeping it in black primer.
4.) The hood is black on the inside and the yellow paint will go, of course, on the outside. How much overspray is there on the inside, underneath the hood? or is it a clean cut?
5.) The car was not a deluxe interior. So the top of the doors and the dash will need to be painted. What was the color? I have a black interior and was thinking tuxedo black for those two areas. Also above the dash, under the windshield, was that a flatter black to reduce glare? I know that the dash pad would transition the tuxedo black to the flatter black to look better.
6.) The top cowl panel vents between the windshield and the hood. Should that be entirely yellow or is there some black primer visible? I know the top panel should be yellow but the panel underneath it is where I am unsure.
Well that is it for now. I got the call Friday AM that they were ready to finish the paint so that is why this is last minute. I am trying to get this thing back to original as possible. I will post some pictures when we are done.
Hopefully I can get some answers here. Thanks for the help in advance!!!
