This Pontiac is getting a make over. Its a 1993 Trans Am, but its really in great condition. We are changing the hood over to a Ram Air type hood but otherwise its staying stock. We will repaint the entire car in black. Because the owner dosent want a show car and the fact this car gets plenty of drive time, we wont be completely taking it apart and painting jambs and all like we often do.
As you can see here there was a previous repair on this fender. It was pretty well done but it was done quite a few years ago and showed some signs of coming back so we dug out all the old repair material and started over with new material seen here. This is Fusor’s heat set structural repair glue. These fenders are plastic and this product works very well for these types of repairs.
The red filler on these pictures is the final filler that smooths up panels from doing the heave repair in the previous steps.
The hood pictures show Chase applying a few coats of Slick Sand to smooth out the imperfections of the fiberglass hood. We will block this out and reprime it with urethane primer tomorrow as well as prime a few other spots on the car that needed some attention.
The last 2 pictures show what the fender looked like after we dug out all the old repair material that was used from a previous repair.
