Found a U-Tube segment on the Dodge Charger plant showing dipping the entire welded up unibody in a tank on conveyor. The tank contained zinc and phosphoric acid creating a zinc phosphate coating on the steel for corrosion, typically called parkerizing. Then the structure went to robot controled prime painting.
Also found footage showing painting the N main assembly at the Dearborn plant.
Film was done in black & white. Color appeared dark and not painted over a light colored primer but appeared to painted on bare steel.
