Undercarriage gray primer color

Hi Guys, It's getting near the time for me to paint my car's undercarriage. I am going with the original factory look instead of the typical all black. So this means to me that the undercarriage was all primer gray, oversprayed with body color, oversprayed with firewall black paint and finally oversprayed with rocker blackout paint.

My undercarriage was sandblasted when I got the car so I don't know what shade of gray to use. In the attached picture is the undercarriage primed with DP50. kind of a medium gray. I have a much darker gray from a mopar project that I could use.

Does anyone have pic that might be of help that would look correct on a computer monitor ?

thanks
Chris

This looks very similar to what mine looked like. I'll try to post a picture.

The color looks right you just need Ermine White over spray. Looking forward to Phil's post.

Hey guys, I am hoping for an answer before I paint my undercarriage next weekend. In the below picture is what I commonly see on 69 restos online. I question the blackout on the floor pans for the Norwood 67 cars like mine. Should my car look like this picture with rocker blackout overspray added or should I not have the black overspray on the floorpans? please advise.

Is that Hugger Orange overspray? If so, that is the amount of Ermine White you want. Also, I have never seen that much black overspray on a RS rocker blackout. Is your car Van Nuys or Norwood? I have seen differences between the two. Stick with gray primer on the underside with Ermine White overspray and you should be safe. Still waiting for Phil's post!

My car is a Norwood car. The blackout you see I am beginning to think that it is a Van Nuys thing.

The cars I have mainly dealt with have been Van Nuys and they do not have that extreme amount of blackout.

Love it or hate it, this is what I ended up doing.

1) Primed undercarriage with DP90LF black epoxy primer.
2) Painted undercarriage with SEMs Hot Rod Black.
3) Oversprayed DP50LF light gray primer along rockers, inside wheel houses and tailpanel with heavy amount of coverage where the gas tank goes.
4) Oversprayed ermine white over the same areas.
5) Oversprayed Hot Rod Black along rockers.
6) Oversprayed Hot Rod Black along base of firewall.

It looks like hell, but it is close to what I believe my car looked liked based on other unmolested Norwood 67's RS/SS cars.
