All day spend bare metalling the front end.No real horror stories under the old paint.
Both wheel arches I personally replaced some years ago and just then painted them with some cellulose paint I had lying about but now time to strip these down .
Sliding door has had over two day solid of pulling out the dents and filling by Ian (The painter)
is getting there.
Painter is super keen on this project as i am the dogsbody doing all the cleaning up and he gets to do all the skilled bits.
Looking great mate

Thanks for all the likes ! I am finally getting my VW mojo back .
Poptop roof rack all done.Due to hairline cracks all over the roof he initially painted it with Reface to bond and fill all the imperfections than a high build plaserat primer before flatting and apply topcoat .
Dashtop removed and will be bare metalled and then painted.Workshop is currently full of Bays but look carefully you can see a rare split oval Beetle quietly waiting in the shadows.
Outside is all ready for primer tomorrow then I finish sanding all the inside on Saturday then this will also be primed and eventually top coat. I am still doing all the grunt work in the evenings and saturdays and to be honest I am completely knackered but the sprayer is still keen to get the best results so I will just go with things and I am sure it will all be worth it !
On goes the primer.
Well the last Saturday I hope sanding .The interior is all sanded ready for paint and most of it cannot even be seen but I will not get this opportunity again so decided to just do the whole lot.
At last painting nearly finished!
