What is the original color under the cowl panel?


Recommended Posts

My 1970 240z is in the shop getting painted and I was wondering if anyone knows if the area under the cowl panel should be painted the body color or some other color. The photo below shows the area with the panel removed. There is overspray from a previous paint job, but it looks like the area itself was never red (in this case). It almost looks like the grey that is used on the rear finish panel or the grille.


Any thoughts?

Gray primer. Mine was the same way, had red overspray under the cowl. And that was the original paint job. Obviously the cowl was painted in place.
