We have another update on the restoration of early '66 Shelby 6S033.  If you missed the last update, please click here to check it out.  Just to recap, this is one of the Carryover GT350s.  If you are unfamiliar with those, you may want to check out the web site, www.CarryoverGT350.com.

All of the work is being performed by Jeremy Turner at Maple Hill Restoration.  In today's post, we will look at the painting of the underside of the car.  Honestly, the pictures here just do not do it proper justice.  Colors were matched perfectly and over spray patterns were duplicated exactly.  It turned out beautifully and is another step in having the entire car completely painted so assembly can begin.

We were fortunate to not only have the original finishes on 6S033, but to also compare these finishes with some cars built very, very close to the same date.  In this particular "painting session" the proper sealers were applied.  The drips on the floor plans had been duplicated earlier.  On this particular car, the primer/sealer color on the underside floor pans is lighter than the color used under the front frame rails.  After applying these colors along with the engine compartment black, the proper white over spray was applied.  Then the black out over spray that resulted from the factory procedure of blacking out the rocker pinch weld moldings was duplicated. There is just so much more to explain about the entire process here, but I'll just let the pictures show it. Click on any of the pictures to see larger sizes.
