    Hi Rich,

    Apologies for the bad memory. I just realized that I'd already asked you the u joint question last fall. Sheesh! Bad memory and a project that's taken slightly longer than expected. What a shocker.

    Hope you have a good week.

    Gmack,

    I prefer to black out the area behind the grille but to tell you the truth I've never seen one that came from the factory that way. I'm not the expert to be sure though.

    Like you say, with a dark color you might not even bother but it's a pretty simple process. I just use rattle can paint...

    I'm restoring my 74 GTV and it's now down to metal. I've heard various reports of the front facing radiator supports and the headlight mounts painted flat black at factory. I like the idea of those areas "going away" visually, but the car will be amaranth(very dark), so I don't know if it's worth it on a non-show car. Do you know if the black is correct? Any images of where it would have been applied exactly? Other thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help.
