George,

I would paint undercarriage same color as the body. I see so many engine compartments painted black and it just drops the value on resale for the car. It just looks cheap.

Agree 100% Jim.

It's all going to be painted same throughout. Going with a white for SW cool surface.

Did you get your ride all finished this summer?

That's the ticket but make sure underside receives the same treatment. Never paint the inside of the engine compartment black. Always looks like trying to hide something. And the restoration was done 1/2 assed. Doing it right means bigger $ eventually when the car passes to its next owner.

There shouldn't be any metric fasteners on this car.

If those screws are fine thread they could be 1/4" British Standard Fine which is 1/4" - 26.

Ernie, Looks like you followed exactly the same way I did in setting up engine stands. Radiator support looks like an exact copy as I did for Bugsy. That along with removing the front wheels on the stands so pivot points are level. Good job.
