Rat Pack... I was  refering to buddy... I just wanted to see how much red overspray was on the bottoms of his floor pan plugs...
I wanted to see if it was consistant and the spray patterns similar to the red on the bottom of his car... I believe you are correct, it would only add confirmation.

John, that is what I thought it was. Man those LOS built cars had lots of overspray. This 67 Z's floors were just about yellow. The sides of the tunnel were covered in body color. We didn't go back that heavy on the overspray, but maybe we should have?........ You know how the judges are at shows, they don't want what is correct, they want "pretty"....JK!....LOL!!!!    :P .............RatPack.............

That was not my car but an original I found on the net to figure out my questions.

Sorry, I wish that was mine:)

*** Anyone with an urestored car that has not had any restoration work to the undercarriage or floors other than being washed,  I would like some pictures for a future CRG article regarding this topic. Please send me a private message and I will give you my email address where to send the pictures to. All years of 1st gens are wanted, including Firebirds.


Here's some photos of the floors of my car when it was being done, just wiped down, no touch-up yet.  68 LOS 12D  I just cleaned them with lots of 409, touched up the rusty spots with either a clear rust converter or Eastwoods flat black rust encapsulator, and left them alone.  Didn't want to mess up all the factory drips & runs or color-car is Sequoia Green, floor color has a good greenish/metallic tinge to it.  Got dinged for having "Painted Plugs"  Oh well, just how it was and not changing it.
RatPack, will PM you, have a few more.

If I'm not having a memory glitch, I think DP90 can also be thinned down to be used as a final step sealer prior to color as well as a first coat for the treated metal...
