Fisher Body Paint Shop
« on: December 19, 2008, 02:28:16 PM »
I need verification on the first primer coat as stated in the CRG document http://www.camaros.org/assemblyprocess.shtml , the second high build coat is called out as Gray.

I assume the first primer coat was GRAY also, and that the undercarriage when the car was complete was this first coat of primer(Gray) and the overspray from the body color and rocker blackout when used.

Is this correct?

Thanx
Buddy

The first prime coat (at least at Norwood) was red oxide - see photo below of my 02D '69.

So do both of you have red oxide showing underneath your cars with body color over spray around the edges?

Thanx

The grey usually shows up on the floor pans and under the trunk floor... some cars have more.

Ok, It looks like Red Oxide was the overall primer for the entire car.

It looks to me that where the primer has been worn away?, the blackish color is possibly from the chemical processes before paint?

Someone help me with what I am looking at.

JohnZ, can you describe this?

Thanx
Buddy

67 Red Exterior w/Gold interior. Look at the following link, the red is primer not paint color. Just my luck the car would be red so to skew the difference. :-[

I was referring to the Dark Gray or Black coloring. Where is it from? Did any chemical treatments in assembly cause this dark coloring or is it road grime?

Thx

The greyish black looks like flow coat primer or the like... black out paints, different color paints, clearing nozzels... who knows what could have happened... some of the line guys were jokers.

Isn't the black the first etch coat in the process and the red oxide primer in your pic minimal coverage? Like the epoxies I use today. I did not think they just blew on lacquer primers over the bare prepared metal. According to the assembly process this is what is indicated.
