Hello 1748 yes my question was more broad. My car came out from the factory very very green and interior is original but bad shape brownish wool. My intention is to paint the car black and Im looking for information how the black cars were looking at inside. My intension is to restorre interior nicely with original shade cloth and do it as it was made. But like a original black car. Im really not a fan of that greeen shade.
Regards Peter

Everything under the car was painted black even is some exterior color was over sprayed.Then everything under was shot with heavy undercoating. This was the factory way of making everything one color under the cars. Thats why the side panels are two different colors.

Jack from discussions with Allan McCrary the outer face was painted in body colour and then at final assembly the lower part below the fenders were sprayed with bitumen type body deadner which is certainly not shiny. From a production point of view it would be simpler to paint both sides of the panel in body colour, which is what I have seen on restored Cords in Auburn. Perhaps this needs further clarification but I think it makes sense.

Peter: Are you planning to make the side plates? You will need many dimensions. It would be easier for you if I made an actual size paper pattern with some dimensions and detailed pictures . It still would be a challenge without having an original for guidance. I could mail you the paper outline if you wish.
