I'm restoreing a 1952 comander convertabile. I need to know the color of the fender appron's in the engine compartment and the underside of the hood. Also in the trunk compartment is it painted grey first and second the floor undercoated black. Or undercoated first and everything painted grey?

Check the post "Need some color information" from a couple of days ago. I asked this same question a couple of days ago, regarding my 52 Starliner. Fender aprons should be the same as the body, the under hood on my car was a very dark color, but I guess it should either be body color or primer, depending on where it was built. The trunk should be gray, the the black sound deadener sprayed on before the paint, and the trunk floor is left black
