We took a little time this afternoon to check out the work that will be needed on the Karmann Ghia. As with most old cars, when you start really inspecting areas you find things that were previously repaired or hidden over the years. I dont think this Karmann Ghia is in bad shape, but we did find some extensive rust in the inner rockers and sub-par repair on the left fender. We plan on going over this one more tomorrow to see if we can find all the little surprises that may be in store for us.
We were able to get the Civic in the booth today. We sanded it yesterday before leaving so this morning it was ready to go into the booth first thing.We carefully masked off the areas that we didnt want to paint, then Paul sprayed sealer over the repaired areas followed by 3 coats of silver base coat. Once that was dry, 2 coats of PPG clear coat was sprayed to provide the shine and protect the base coat.Tomorrow we will reassemble the door and re-install the rear bumper. This one should be going home tomorrow.
