Hi-
I'm getting ready to buy a 1973 Duster in B5 blue. The trunk is in primer. I think it is suppose to be the splatter paint, but not sure which one? I would like to know what it was originally. Thank you!! :)

Nope. Should be the same as the body color. But it would look just as good to use the splatter paint.

Yes, body color, but not applied all that carefully. I think the splatter paint would look better, unless you are going for originality.

Body paint color, all the plugs and wires free of paint because they were installed after the car was painted. The insides of the quarter panels should be undercoated, too, then painted. Helped with both sound deadening and things sliding around the trunk from denting the panels from the inside out.


There should be some undercoat overspray along the fenderwell extensions, too. I remember digging the stuff off mine when I painted it, so I imagine they had their undercoat gun in hand, reached in, sprayed the corner and over the wheel well, but did not get any on the gas filler tube, cross members, wires, etc..
