Yesterday we trimmed out the doors, hood and trunk. Today we trimmed out the body. First we sanded the areas that we were painting. Then we then cleaned those areas and masked off what we didn’t want to paint. Because the car is already white, we didn’t need to seal it. We applied the color coats, followed by the pearl coats. Once those were dry, we applied 2 coats of clear. The next step is to install all the panels and fit them for the best alignment. We then will start repairing the body. There aren’t many dents in this car, but there are some. We will get those repaired and primed up to produce a great finish on this Z3. This pearl paint pop off of this car in the sunshine.
