Lower quarter panel.....decal or paint?


Recommended Posts

I was thinking that the wide argent part of my lower quarter panel is a decal but I do not see it on any vendors list.  Is this part paint or a decal, the wide one that wraps to the bottom and into the wheel well?

Like others noted, the lower color is paint, and was the first process done in the paint shop. The argent/black was then masked off and the body color was applied. The two component stripe is available as a reproduction, it covers the paint masking line.

Yep, first thing done is to paint the lower color.  I broke protocol—today I painted the black on mine after having painted the white a month or so ago.
