G'day again,

I have done a quick search and nothing came up re: what was the factory finish inside the front guards; painted body colour, body deadener or chassis black?? Thanks, Al

Hi Al,
While you are considering the correct finish to use, here is something else to think about...

If your guards have been worked a lot, say to remove rust and/or dints, the metal can be thinner than factory which can cause starring in the paintwork from stones being thrown up by the tyres. I have seen this on a car that had been resprayed on months beforehand.

I guess this would be less of an issue if you never travel on gravel roads but still a remote chance on sealed roads too.

I decided to use dynamat type material directly above the tyre just in case...

Just a thought.
Cheers,
Trevor_B

The FC specification issued by GMH states that either primer followed by underbody black (375-1646) or primer followed by dipping black (366-1690) is the required finish.
So, underbody black or chassis black would suffice.

Stone guard or body schutz will reduce any stone impact

Awesome, thanks fellas. I reckon I will go for stone guard then which will be a slight departure from original but sounds like the way to go. Al

Original isn't always the best, evidenced by the amount of rust that has been cut out of old Holdens over the years.
