Hey guys I'm hoping some of you can help. I recently purchased a GTV that's in pretty good shape. However the PO took it into a everyday paint shop for a run of the mill $7,000 paint job. The problem is the paint is terrible and the car was poorly reassembled.

There's a great restoration shop here in NoCo, so I figure when winter comes it will be time for and engine, glass, and trim our back to metal proper repaint.

Since I'm going that far I want to detail the undercarriage, but can't find any reference to what was original. Here's my first batch of wuestions

1. Was the underside body color or black?
2. Same question for the wheel wells?
3. What color was the underside of the gas tank?
4. My car is missing the ears that the washer bag hangs on. We're they plastic or metal?

Thanks much for any help.

I believe everything was body colored, I believe the tank was originally silver. Not sure on the ears, sorry.
