Re: [Chrysler300] Removal of 55 year old undercoating



Hi, Carlton:


I used a Bernz-O-matic torch and a putty knife to take off the under coating on my E. I am the second owner of this car and questioned why the entire bottom was coated with tar. My '64 only had the rear wheel openings coated to deaden the sound while driving.  Anyone, was this the norm for the day?


Best,
Ron Kurtz

       Hello from the very snowy and very
 cold Northwood’s of Wisconsin,(and Eagle River, home of the
 World Championship Snowmobile Derby)  I am currently in the middle of
 the very unpleasant job of removing old and hard but very
 well attached old undercoating on my 300H. The bottom of the
 car is complete (sand blasted and painted although there was
 not much undercoating left) so it is only the inner and
 outer fenders (with thicker undercoating) that I need to
 clean of undercoating.  The fellow who will be painting is
 reluctant to try to sand blast it off so I am using PB
 Blaster, Liquid Wrench, and kerosene to soften and then
 scrap off the undercoating.    I’m working in about 50F
 temp in my garage so I could probably warm up (kerosene tube
 heater) the fenders further if that would help.  Or if
 there are stronger solvents that don’t evaporate too
 quickly, that would probably help too.I’ll appreciate all
 suggestions.Thanks,Carlton Schroeder
