Best original style undercoating
#1
I'm looking for suggestions on the best undercoating out today to reproduce the original style that was put on the front clip and wheel wells. Just trying to reproduce an original look. Thanks

I used U-pols multiliner.  It's really tough stuff. You can play with pressure and distance and recreate the factory look pretty close. It works pretty well.

I am sure some of the guys that do body work all the time have better solution. I have been looking at getting one of the 3-M guns to apply their Body Schutz from quart containers. These prices are from on supplier and not necessarily the best price or supplier. 3-M Body Schutz $35.98 / qt. Gun $140.54. The gun dispenses more like the factory did and not like an aersol can does which looks nothing like factory. http://www.autobodydepot.com/3M-8864_3.h...R74bTeP61t

I do think that this material does not like to be painted over either so check on that also. I know they have materials that can be painted over.
The Ford process, as you saw when you cleaned your car, is to apply sealers to bare metal then primer and then paint. The areas with black like the engine bay, lower body black for Decor Group and the black on each side at the tail lights to hide body color when you have a panel between the tail lights is applied before the color. The black is masked off and then the color sprayed. So in the front wheel wells there is areas that show primer, black and color on top of the sealer.
If you are not building a show car then what suits you best works.
Does anyone on the forum have experience with the 3-M Schutz gun and how good does it work to replicate Ford application. I am working on a 72 Q vert that was dip stripped so nothing there and have been looking at getting the gun to apply the sealer.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

David the Upol multiliner uses the same type of gun as the 3m stuff but much cheaper. When you buy the kit it comes with the gun. Also the upol can be painted over. As far as replicating the factory look, you need to play with the air pressure and distance from panel to get it right, but can be done with good results.  Upol has been phasing out the multiliner and has switched to raptor bed liner. I have bought both and they seem identical to me. You can still find the multiliner on different sites but overall they are switching to raptor. http://www.ebay.com/itm/UPOL-UP0821-Rapt...Swol5Y4xzy
