Quote from: rainbow4jd on May 01, 2014, 12:12:23 AMDoing a Concours / Museam quality level restoration on my Bird.On the underside - I know there was just overspray on the under chassis, but it seems a lot (a lot) of restored vehicles going through the auctions with painted underbellys.One argument is that the restoration of paint quality, fit and finish, are all far better than original so paint the undercarriage.The other argument is that painted bottom looks SOOOOOO good and highlights the suspension, axle, and exhaust components.So just wondering what you all think? Remember - this is a trailer queen in the making - if you were doing a trailer queen - what do you do?As a sidebar - at the Mopar Nats - how do they judge a restored car - paint or primer? That might be the deciding factor.

I feel that as time goes on, buyers of higher end cars like this will want something done as close as possible to what the factory did. The factory did not intend to paint the bottom of the car. Period. If you look at how well some OEM restorations are done, they are still very beautiful underneath, even though they are not wall to wall shiny paint. Compared to getting all the details and finishes right, painting the entire underbody is sort of taking the easy way out.
