removed all interior, doors and windows
i began preparing car for paint, cleaning and sanding the body..

my little girl is already crazy about it :driving

Image

meanwhile i was looking for a set of wheels,
first thought of buying some brand new ones like xxr's or rota grid

until i found these, very cheap, perfect size, perfect fit, need some work but i like them already

some photo's about the paint process
first i had to build my own positive pressure paint booth
after modifications, trial and error i had a good air flow, pushing air through the filters

Image

first i painted all loose parts such as fenders, doors, hood and trunk lid
i sprayed the car body last

Image

Image

Image

Image

i will be painting the trunk as last this weekend
on most parts i had orange peel
but i don't mind about it

i sanded the fuel cap which had lots of orange peel and polished it by hand to see how the end result could be

fresh painted fuel cap
Image

result after sanding it down and polishing
Image

very pleased with the result and looking forward to do the entire car with a da polisher

Cya later

What do you mean with "sanded" because the result looks amazing! (mag trouwens ook pb in het nederlands ;) )

Can't wait to see it finished!

ik heb het tankdeksel geschuurd met 1500 en 2000 nat schuurpapier, daarna met compound pasta de krasjes eruit gewreven en terug opgeblonken met polish.
Een test om dan zo de rest van de auto te behandelen, alleen zal ik dan het compound en polier proces met een da polisher (van meguiars) doen, dan gaat het nog beter en vooral sneller..

Really impressive! But way around the tire on the right front wheel and on the left rear wheel! You need to rotate them. :roll:
