you should have painted it first.
I know, I was thinking about painting it or getting it Jet-Hot coated, I probably will when the motor comes out. I was kind of in a hurry to get this car back into service so it wasn't really an option right now.you should have painted it first.
Yup, I think I'm going to bring it to Carlisle this year, it's badly in need of paint (with a mismatching Edwardian Grey hood) but in great shape mechanically. Here's a pic I snapped today. I'm hopefully going to be rolling my Shelbys soon with new rubber:More pics and sound! lol Bring it to Carlisle Good Find - Good Upgrade
My 81 turbo sedan is going like that. Mechanicals are all really good (just a few engine oil cooler hose leaks to sort out and the turbo wastegate seems to be siezing) but the major think is the paintwork. I'll get a good car cover to keep the weather off the car and that'll give time to save up for the painting... Proper paint jobs are expensive, esp. the bare-metal respray version.That's sweet man
Once the mechanical's are all set - then you fix the body - once that's all done you prep it and paint it. It's just the natural way of the beast.
