Continuing to strip the car. The last two panels are in progress.
The right fender and right door. I’ll have these in primer later on this week.
It’s been very busy at the shop so customer jobs first.
Stripped, but will need to DA the rest of the paint off. A few dings but NO rust.
11-8-12 Bodyworked and primed NO rust on either the fender or door.
11-10-12 Block and spot prime on left side
Notice the “219” on the rear panel. Probably written as the car went through the assembly line
All new window motors
Cut in on the hood and deck lid. Decided on 2012 Toyota Sunset Bronze Pearl
Sharp color in the sunlight. Lot’s of crystals including the paint mix.
Cost is $800+ per gallon
Hood and deck are cut in. Have a new insulation pad and clips on the way.,
11/28.2012 Pulled the doors off to do the cut in.
