I've been looking through various rebuild threads in the Project section and it seems most people go with either nasty black tarry under seal or just colour coded to their main car colour. Thing is, under the boot floor they were originally finished in a greeny grey paint. I still have a little bit of this under mine but it's fast being taken over with surface rust. I intend to get stuck into this very shortly and wondered if anyone has any more info about the original finish, colour etc and if anyone has ever re-done this original greeny grey paint. All the 'OEM resto' guys don't actually do this part to OEM standards!

I think peugeot 'cheaped out' with just undercoat. My Goodwood was like that and the arches had a slight misting of green body colour. I too painted the underside and arches to full body colour, as most restos do.

My phase 1 GTI6 is grey underneath too and suspect they all are. No-one sees it (well no normal people anyhow) so image how much money they saved by not painting them.

So it was standard then? Both my 6 and rallyes have it under the boot floor. It seems a bit cheap however it has also lasted fairly well considering its seen 17 british winters!

The boot floor just looks like grey undercoat/primer to me, this is on a p.1 gti6 with very little boot floor rust for the age so most of the grey is intact.

As long as its properly rust proofed thats all that counts for me, especially as my daily driver was so badly rusted. I will not let that happen ever again!
