PAINT & BODYWORK

Its time for paint and bodywork. I stripped all the pieces off before I took it to the body shop.

Since it was not exactly street legal, I took it over on a trailer.

 

 

 

They have stripped the drivers side down to bare fiberglass and are fixing the cracks and broken places.

 

 

Looks a little different. Sort of like a tiger shark paint scheme.

 

 

In the paint booth. I personally took parts off to be painted separately like the hood , wiper door, exhaust filler, and side grills. Even though the body shop owner said they would do a good job, I was afraid the workers may try to cut some corners and not take the parts off.

 

The left hinge area had been broken some time ago. Someone had rigged up a fix. The body shop said they could repair this part but I was skeptical. They fixed it though.
