    So did they spray the black after the body color? Or before? Ron

    Not always. I've seen a lot of cars have the top part left body color, as shown in the photo before.

    Could be a more factory specific thing?

      I see in this photo there's not much for black over spray.

      - - - Updated - - -

      Pretty much body color unless that black above radiator?

      AC my bad!

      On the blue car, it's pretty much splatter. You can see (a little) heavier paint on the left & right of the supports into the fender area.

      Not to add to the thread hijack, but to add to the historical examples:

      Though not a B-body, this is a relatively untouched (engine and manifolds have been resprayed, master cylinder is the 1973-up type, left side of car resprayed long ago from apparent rear door/quarter damage), 22k-mile Plymouth Valiant showing off its factory blackout.

      Unlike the two B-bodies above, it is much fuller and darker. (Question: Was this area sprayed at the factory before the lower filler panel under the grill was installed? Would explain the ability for this amount of coverage. Perhaps the B's had the filler installed during this process, and the A's not?)

      [​IMG]

      Either way, a bit more coverage of black paint makes the view through the grill a heck of a lot nicer without compromising the accuracy of overall factory sloppiness. Reminds me that I have to do that on my '68 Satellite.

      -Kurt

      P.S.: Back to topic: That's one GORGEOUS Charger 500. Even a wing car can't match the excitement of seeing a Charger barreling towards you with all headlamps exposed and flush with the grill!

      Thanks Kurt! Like my buddy says he new a guy that worked at the factory and said whatever it took to get it out the door! Not all chargers were created equal! I'm sure many of you will agree. Ron

      I guess the point is to attempt to recreate what looks like equated to nothing more than an "attempt" in the first place lol.

              You sir have the finest styling of all the second generation chargers out the. What Chrysler did to make the 69 500 charger was perfection.
