car had sat under a cover outside a few years of its life,
so most of the sheet metal had surface rust.
metal prep to remove the rust and then we sand it or use scotch
bright to prepare the surface for primer.
There are small imperfections (dents and scratches)
in the floor, but we need to put primer on all of the bare
metal surfaces before they rust again.
The center console
is primered black and the rest is painted with white urethane
work is never finished! Here the boss is sand blasting the
fenders and bottom from years of road rage and rust (most
RS Carrera's were delivered for the European market and roads
in the winter ain 't the best on any car in the 70's).
you must rotate the car a million times. During this process,
you have to use an air blow gun to blow the sand out of the
inner body structure and I mean a million times. Without the
rotisserie sand removal would be very difficult.
and the front apron are the last panels with old paint and
primer. We will remove this this week.
