Could someone please post a clean and crisp picture of a firewall so I can show my painter how the firewall had over spray on it. We go to paint in a couple weeks and he has never saw what I'm talking about. He says no problem but I'd like for him to see first hand what I want.
My garnet red Norwood built 69 pictured below had about an inch or so of body color left on the firewall so I duplicated that . I think it is clear from what John Z said whatever you decide , whether it is a 1/4" of body color or an inch of body color on the firewall don't make it a clean hard taped line.
John Z from another thread "Firewall blackout at Fisher Body wasn't a "concours" operation, and coverage varied greatly; the photo below is my untouched original Norwood 02D car, which shows pretty much Fathom Green body color above the plenum seam, and blackout below it. Some cars had blackout further up, some didn't - it was done with a hand-held shield (not tape and paper), and sometimes the sprayers used the shield, sometimes they didn't."
