69 Dearborn Undercarriage Finishing - A Guide
« on: September 23, 2017, 07:31:14 pm »
This is an article I've written and rewritten a dozen times over 20 years. Found it was easier to have a prepared document when I got questions related to the subject rather than going through the whole thing every time. It proved to be a challenge as your always discovering new details, sub patterns and such along the way so it has only been share privately in the past since I never felt it was finished. Not sure anything I do is completely

Also just limiting the coverage to one area of the car was sort of difficult when you want to help and describe everything that was going on at that point at the car plant.  See allot of related requests here so thought it would be a good time to try and wrap it up then focus on some of the other years and plants. Hope some here find it useful in there related endeavors.

For those that are also members of CMF the article is also located in the Library there with all the other articles listed by model year

Its a Big file with plenty of pictures so will take some time to load. Be patient  :)

Hope it helps others

Thanks for looking

Looks great!  Here is a pic off an original 69 dearborn Boss 429 I have a bunch of pictures of.  Notice the under coating sprayed in the shock tower, I have seen this often in dearborn cars, not just Boss 9's.  I have a new arrival here, a 69 R code coupe from dearborn and it is untouched and the same way.  It is an interior decor car and has the extra undercoating underneath.

Nearly the same here... Dearborn R-Code, date of assembly 02/10/1969




But there was not too much inside the shock tower.

A big Thank You! to Jeff for the guide. Very well written, it helped me a lot during the last weeks.

I don't remember the date on the car, but it was spring 69.
