You realize my friend that you are giving away in these threads of yours some of the most thorough and detailed auto body repair training available anywhere?

I don't know if I'm more amazed at the consistent quality of your work, or the time and effort you take to put it up for us.

Thank you.

cheers

Thanks Shifted.

I know nothing....nothing.

My friend in the business goes to training seminars several times a year,and is a walking encyclopedia of auto body and paint knowledge.

A few hints are bound to rub off.Laughing

Got the first coat on the commandos today.



I wound up sanding the paint in the center of the bumpers off anyway to start with a clean slate.
Probably faster even using #80 all the way by the time you count all the extra steps it takes to deal with the chemicals.

You have to get the stock number online,
and call the store for your outboard motor lower unit paint.

The doors have cured for 48 hours.
It's time to retape them to paint the window surrounds Rally Black.

I did some body and paint years ago on my first car, rusty 72 VW Superbeetle and it was only 11 years old at the time. I replaced both front fenders and still probably killed a gallon and 1/2 of bondo and 2 rolls of sander disks Shocked

When I went to have my 240 painted I bought an electric DA sander and some sanding disks. After about 2 hours of breathing old paint in the hot S/W sun, I bailed.

I went down to the Shieb and asked about getting it painted. they said it would be about 150 extra for the sanding and about $200 for a couple of dents. It took me all of about 10 seconds to see I wasn't going to do it myself. lol!

Props on the detail work, I cant wait to see it finished. Koolspot

Word,

I've prepped and taken an 84 245 DL and the 87 Toyota Hilux to Miracle.

Not bad if you keep the bulk single stage waxed.

Some people talk of the tamale lady,
we run in tool lady circles.

7/8 conduit. That's what you spec'd for the lower chassis braces right?
Thanks.

Back from the bodyshop on a flatbed.
It's really very nice and smooth almost no dirt specks in the paint.
