Paint upgrade

DSCF8654DSCF8659 DSCF8660 DSCF8661 This ’04 Cobra is in the shop to get its paint upgraded. The paint on the car is in pretty good shape but does have a couple of places that could use attention. So we will go ahead and take care of those and give this Cobra a nice slick paint job that will set it off from the others. We started by removing the bumpers, mirrors, headlights and tail lights then we washed the car with a strong soap to strip off all the wax and paint protectant that has been applied over the years. We then sanded the entire car with 320 grit paper followed by 600 grit paper. Once we were done with that, we used a scotch write pad and scuff stuff. This process sands the hard to reach areas and also cleans the car. Not pictured are the bumpers which were also treated with the same procedures as the car. Tomorrow we will start with the bumpers and the under side of the h00d. We are planning on also getting the body masked off  tomorrow and the car painted on Friday.  DSCF8662 DSCF8658
