If that Rally Green car is a Z then it is a Norwood car. I couldn't find it on their site anymore. Where did you find the underside of the Lemans Blue car on their site? Thanks for the pictures.....RatPack.........

Pex68, were your inner wheelhouses undercoated at the rear? My 10E LOS car had no undercoating the rear wheelwells and the runs in the primer were unbelievable! I have the same amount of runs on the bottom of the car as yours does and my floors and drain plugs were Seafrost Green. Check your private messages..................Thanks!!!

Just keep livin......L I V I N .............

here is two 69 , 1 lemans blue and other rally green




I know this is an old thread but in the process of re-restoring my 67 5B NOR ragtop and wanting to return the underbody to the correct finish method, I have been studying this topic in detail for a long time and have also read the 'Process Overview' article many times.  When I restored the car back in the mid 80's I scuff sanded and sprayed the under body semi gloss black for the clean look. I remember seeing yellow but I never kept record of how much.
 Now I want to undo that. No matter where in the undercarriage I sand I uncover the following layers (going from top layer to bare metal).....top layer-->  black (my paint from the 80's) --> butternut yellow (original body color and paint) --> red oxide primer layer--> what looks like a dark gray or black very thin layer (phosphate?) --> bare metal. There is no gray to be found underneath so far as reports suggest should be there and overspray over that.
  What stumps me is the whole bottom has a layer of butternut yellow including deep inside the tunnel at the top...as if the whole bottom was sprayed. I figured the robotic sprayers would hit the bottom edges mainly and not so much up and into the tunnel top.
 These pictures, especially the green example,  prove to me that it is possible to have an almost underbody color the same as the top coat. It may sound anal but I am so relieved to see this example and know it can happen. :)
