Painting the under side

I'm getting pretty close to being ready. What do you recommend. I know some folks have used bed liner type material, but i'm worried it'll trap moisture next to the panels that are already prone to rust.

I'm leaning toward painting with the same paint I'll used for the body, but if there's a better/tougher answer, I'd like to know about it.

What do you recommend?

Rob

Rob,

Don Marcot sprayed the under side and interior panels on my MGBGTV8 conversion (http://www.advanceautowire.com/mgbgtv8)with Lizard Skin (http://www.lizardskin.com/) and then painted over it with body color. It looks good. He used both sound and heat reduction materials.

Kit car magazine has an article on Lisard Skin in the current issue.

Thanks Dan. I'd read about that stuff, but had forgotten about it.

Rob
I painted the underside with the same paint as the top. Then masked off the wheel wells and forward facing edges. Then sprayed them with undercoat.
