After many months at the body shop my car is finally getting painted this weekend. I know there is rock guard rubberized 

coating on the rockers and I believe on the lower portion of the nose panel. Can someone chime in on how

far up the nose it goes and wether these cars originally has black rockers or coloured?

 

cheers,

I believe, Bill, the answers are to be found in threads about body “schutz” and “underside painting”.

 

There are some well-illustrated threads.  This one is slightly off-topic for a ‘73, but...typical!

Wurth Stone Guard Grey in spray can or schutz gun compatible.

 

PN: 8890 972 for the spray can.

 

I don't recall how far up the front valence you go, but think it is to the lower fold; just make sure that your car did have it, as some did not on the front.

The square taillights have the schutz around the entire bottom perimeter, except for the rear valance. But, to Einspritz’s point, I can’t recall if the round taillights have schutz on the lower nosepiece.

 

That’s why I’d try to find a couple of the threads on schutz and underbody painting.

Andrew did you use a media blaster to remove the "schultz"? 

 

 

I used a Jet Chisel.  Made short work of the texturing.

This is good to know.  The last person to paint my 73tii had shot the Schutz about 4 inches too high on the rear quarter flank.  We will take this off and re-shoot the schutz properly when we prepare to paint the car in the fall.

David,  I could go bananas on the underbody with the Jet Chisel.  Haven't done an area that will then need to be smooth.  It may be a bit much to be used in that way however, I've never tried.
