I have been reading the CCOA judging sheets for the undercarriage but they leave me guessing. My car is from the Dearborn plant. Can yall tell me how the undercarriage should be painted or dressed out? Thanks
Cosmoline-the udercoating goop. Why your car has a "textured" feel on the underbelly. It dries to a very hard shell after air exposure, but it stays goopy when kept enclosed in any compartment/cranny.Brian what is factory cosmolina? And thanks much for all the information. I will be writing as much down as I can and trying to compile a real good information packet for both myself and the guy that is doing the body paint. I will drive this car but I want to start right. Won't be driven daily but when the occasion permits. were the front springs bare metal or painted black?
You want the black out to be on the horizontal area of the rockers only..where it's not visible from the side, at all. The body color should be all you see if you crouch down just a bit and look straight on, so find the "curve" of the rocker/side on the body and where it starts to go up-that's the junction. It's a foggy line, not too sharp. Holding the cardboard away from the area lets the line be less sharp.ok now looking at the picture of Brians car, where would the slop grey start and finish? Also the pinch welds were painted black. Currently on my car they are glossy, detailed from the GoldenClassics I am sure, but the black goes all the way to the bottom of the Rocker Moldings? Is this to high?
