    Anyone have a pic of where the chip guard goes on a 84 or 83 hurst olds? Maybe someone could upload a pic and circle the areas? I have an idea of where it goes from what I've read but a pic is worth a thousand words! Also, my I'm doing body work on the car & it is in partial primer, should I spray these areas with the rock guard b4 I take the car to get painted? (Areas will be prepped of course)

    That's we used my father used in his body shop years ago. Typically we went 1/4 way up between the lower body line and the lower edge of the rocker/quarters/fenders. Not sure if that's factory correct though

    You could PM 83hurst#1812. He has an extremely original 83 H/O.

    I have an original 84' Hurst...starts sbout 1/2 an inch below the bodyline...there is none on the back of the fenders...go figure...thats a place that would be beneficial to rock chips...putting in a couple pics for reference...that yellow tape is 1 inch so it starts 1 inch from the stripes...mine is very smooth so a thick saturated coat of it should work....also a smooth transition from the edge so you might want to use some aperture tape at the top...it is not a hard line per say...hope it helps...would definitely get some other peoples descriptions before you do it. 20170410_195801.jpg 20170410_195957.jpg

    The 3M spray can won't mimic the factory look...you would want the 3M Rocker Shutz that you poor into a Shutz gun if you are going for an original look...if not the can will be fine...when I repaint mine I'm leaving it off...probably spraying the whole car black with gold stripes and the Hurst logos and trim and grill will be flat or satin black with a W40 logo somewhere on the car...I paint for a living every day...about time to paint my own.

    Thanks, that helps. I will likely use the can stuff, just wanting something fairly close to original. (I don't have a shutz gun or anything) I'm guessing after these areas are sprayed, I should prep the rock guard areas with 320 or 400 grit prior to paint? Your rock guard looks pretty smooth, a lot of them I've saw were pretty rough looking.
