    Post Repainting my ss!!!!

    i bought the car year ago.it had really bad paint-job on it.single stage.so i decided to bring her back to life sense i go to school for auto body.as of right now half of the car is primed.had to do a lots of stripping to get that shitty ass paint off.quarter panels i had to take down to the factory primer.i will give more info and add more pics as the progress takes place.

    FIRST DAY.HAD TO HAND BLOCK EVERYTHING WITH 80 GRIT DUE TO BAD PAINT JOB. AND THE PANELS HAD LOTS OF LOW SPOTS.

    STRIPING DOWN THE BACK BUMPER COVER

    WHOEVER REPAIRD IT LAST TIME JB WELED THE BUMPER.WHEN I WENT TO REMOVE IT IT JUST CRACKED.:bang:

    I HAD TO BEVEL OUT THE CRACK AND I PLASTIC WELED IT.ALSO THERE WAS THIS NEW BUMPER STAPLER(CAN'T REMEBER THE NAME RIGHT NOW) MY INSTRUCTOR BOUGHT.SO WE DECIDED TO GIVE SHOT AND IT MADE THE CRACK ALOT STRONGER.THEN I DID FEW SPREADS OF PLASTIC FILLER.

    HAD TO DO SOME BODYWORK TO THE QUARTER PANELS.


    THE BACK HATCH WASN'T THAT BAD.

    HAD TO WET-SAND 220 BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT IT TO DIG INTO THE SMC.TURNED OUT PRETTY GOOD.



    PRIMED THE QUARTERS.3 NICE HEAVY COATS

    PRIMED THE OTHER PIECES

    PRIMED THE AIR LID.

    THIS IS WHAT GOING TO BE ON THE AIR LID.

    this is it for now.feel FREE throw in your two cents in.lol

    Yes!! Do this!!
    I've deleted mine and it looks so much cleaner without it. I'm actually not even running any antenna at the moment and I still pick up all of my preset stations

    BLOCKED THE SAIL AND QUARTERS PANELS WITH 180.GOING TO REPRIME THEN 320 IT THEN 600.USUALLY U HAVE TO PRIME IT ONCE AND 320 IT AND 600 BUT SENSE MY PAINT WAS IN BAD SHAPE ITS GOOD IDEA TO PRIME TWICE.


    SAME THING FOR ALL THE OTHER PANELS

    THE HOOD IS IN BAD SHAPE.CRACKED ALL ALONG THE SIDES.GOT TO DO A LOT OF FIBERGLASS REPAIR.

    I SHAVED THE BOW-TIE EMBLEM.PLANNING ON LEAVING IT, OR AIR BRUSHING THIS CUSTOM EMBLEM ON IT.

    are you using a filler primer, and are you going to repaint it with a bas coat clear coat setup or a single stage emron? i vote the first one since it gives you a better end result and you can apply a lot of clear so you dont have to worry when your wet sanding it.

    PRIMED REST OF THE CAR

    BOTH OF THE ROCKER PANELS HAD FEW BAD DENTS.

    BLOCKED EVERYTHING WITH 180.READY FOR RE-PRIME.



    HERE IS ONE OF THE SAMPLES OF CUSTOM PAINT.IT'S BAYSIDE BLUE METALLIC AS BASECOAT MISTED BLUE ICE PEARL(HOUSE OF KOLOR) ON TOP.WHAT YOU GUYS THINK?


    NOW THIS IS THE JUST THE BAYSIDE BLUE METALLIC BASECOAT WITHOUT THE BLUE ICE PEARL.

    SHOULD I DO THE BLUE ICE PEARL ON TOP OR JUST STICK WITH BAY-SIDE BLUE METALLIC COLOR.
