Underside of car same color as exterior

Recommended Posts

I've recently purchased a very clean 75 280 z. I want to touch up the underside of the car but I am not sure what color to use. It appears that the bottom sheet metal was painted the same as the exterior but it looks like some of the areas are black. The car's color is bronze metallic which is seen on various areas underneath (above the gas tank for example).  Were the cars painted the same  color top and bottom as they went down the paint line? I suspect the suspension and drive parts that are bolted onto the car after paint were a satin black. How about the wheel wells, exterior color or black, or were they painted the exterior color and then shot with body deadener and therefore they appear to be black? Any insight out there on this issue.
