Hi all - I am rebuilding/repainting a '51 3100.
Question please - what is the stock under the hood paint - is it mat black or should it match body paint?
Thank you in advance!

Hey Scott, my 54 GMC under hood was black with lots of chrome yellow overspray. The truck exterior is chrome yellow. I painted the hood underside yellow with the horizontal pieces gloss black. I e seen others similar. Basically black primer with exterior color overspray. Same with fenders. The factory paint quality was not the best. You’ll find that out as you peel back the layers. Have fun with it.

Hoods,fenders & doors were all originally painted a satin black primer at the factory.

I have seen a lot of hood undersides that had varying amounts body color overspray on top of the black primer but, I have never seen one that had a completely painted underside from the factory.

And don't forget about all the dealers that liberally shot undercoating on the undersides of the hoods.

I have satin black chip guard on my underhood and most of the underbody. Not exactly original but it doesn't show minor scratches, imperfections etc. It's held up very well for 18+ years.

Figured stuff that old would be in public domain by now. Unless he took the pics at the factory? Can you copyright other folks work?

Let's stay on topic here.
