I'm obsessed with primer colors. Do you feel like the camera capture is pretty true to the appearance of the tunnel when you see it in person?

Thanks, Bill

I think the deep up in the transmission tunnel shots are the red/brown primer.

I will confirm next time I am under the car but I am fairly confident all the red you are seeing is Matador and not primer. Remember LOS cars were painted differently than NOR cars. My fathers green 68 (NOR) does have some primer but not as much in the tunnel area until you get closer to the rear axle area.

Last night I spent a few hours working on removing the black overspray off the top of the cowl and tulip areas. Word of advice, if you still have any MEK make sure you have whatever you are working on in a well ventilated area as you are gonna burn some brain cells.. I almost felt a buzz afterward and I had fans going in the garage. Either way it worked sorta well but I am going to try oven cleaner next. If you have any experience and success with spray bomb removal chime in as I am open to suggestions.

Photo 242 - Pass tulip before removal

Photo 243 - After a few attempts at removal

Photo 244 - Plug removal showing original white for the white out for the stripes

Photo 245 - Upper cowl after a few passes with MEK and a scotchbrite pad and a few with 800 grit paper.

Photo 246 - Fan shroud after cleaning. There was a ton of overspray on it and I still see spots I missed but I needed to "tap out" for the night and called it for now. Will show done done photos once I'm done done.. lol
