    I never removed grille from my original paint Y2 A12 but here are two pics from the top...obviously Lynch Rd. I also have a St Louis built 69 Gtx Q5 original paint that looks spot on

      The factory did not mask off anything when this black out was applied. On original unrestored cars you can see the overspray into the engine bay by the battery tray as well as other places. You can see black paint specs atop my fenders for example.

      If you are going for OE correct you will want to spray it from the bottom up so the overspray details are replicated. My car was on a lift above my head when we did this detail. Just like on the line as some else mentioned above.

      It all depends on what you are looking to achieve at the end of the restoration. I hope this helps.

          Although it was corporate policy to black out the area behind the grille, not all vehicles received it. I have seen, and owned, original paint Mopar's of various colors that never received the treatment. Even had factory markings in the area.
          Best guess is it occurred during a period when workers stopped but the line didn't.

          If you have an original car that does not have the blackout treatment, look hard for factory markings. Photo document it.
