George,

  Did you spray the car? If so, approximately what spray fan size did you use and how much overlap did you do under the rockers with the blue coat to get that factory look?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike, I did not spray it but ill try to find out the answer. The car was painted Ohare Auto Body in Bensenville IL. I thought they did an outstanding job, other than covering up most of the lightly stamped date codes. But I can be slightly anal sometimes. George

Very pretty under your car George. Blue works :D.....Ash Gold does not >:(

What you wrote falls exactly in line what I found under my Z. Wondered why the gray ? ( and front 20% pretty accurate)

under my tank (trunk) was barely any coverage what so ever ,had the car sat out over the years , it would have long since rotted away. presented almost as bare metal with very lite surface rust.

Looks like you pretty much nailed what it might have looked like before the undercoating.

No Yenko did you use base clear to reproduce the overspray? It looks fantastic I would like to reproduce the overspray on my floor just not sure how to go about it.

Scott, I had the paint store mix up some single stage paint and sprayed it on with an Air Brush so I could have better control of the spray pattern. Happy New Years, guys. George
