Body is Painted!!! (5/21/01)
I just got the main body back from
the body shop today, YEAHHHHH!! and as you can see, it came out
excellent! I should be getting the hood, tail lights,
transmission, windshield frame, EMPI Valve Covers, and a few other
miscellaneous parts within a week or so. I need to readjust the
rear suspension so that it sits about 2" lower, but I may wait
until I have the engine and tranny installed to make the final
adjustment. This has been a long time coming, I delivered the body
to them last August (2000), so that should give you an idea of how much
time they spent on it.
Here is the undercoating that was
done around the tub area of the buggy. I'll have pictures of the
undercoating under the hood in a couple days. This stuff is heavy
and durable, and isn't sprayed out of an aerosol can. I think that
it came out great! We
should see some color next week!
Here is the body after a full coat of
polyester primer. Once that was sprayed, then they blocked the
whole body, then sprayed a full coat of conventional primer. The
hood is still covered in the polyester primer.
