Finished! '85 Brat red paint job
Posted 24 December 2012 - 11:46 AM
Not even just that, I completely crafted a new exhaust- fixed broken bolts- all that kinda stuff. I also installed new brake shoes/pads, changed clutch cable, changed a door hinge, etc.
Reproduction Brat decals from pooparu (B&R Sign & Design in Denver, Colorado)
looked like this when I started (sun-fade, paint chips, etc were just focused bad on the drivers front fender and front of drivers door)
doing a few things at once
The tailgate was dented up pretty good in the middle, otherwise the car was pretty straight
propane, and propane accessories

I didn't spray down the actual red or clearcoat paint, I have a pro mexican for that
mistake #1: decal was not included in kit (its ok, pooparu reimbursed me)
^I layed down those decals with a guy, with soapy water like doing window tint for perfect placement. Was a huge job.
Now out of the booth!
tailgate looks amazing, too bad this decal mistake needs fixed:
white line painted on, tailgate re-cleared, but...
Mistake #2, white paint bled into clearcoat
tailgate finally fixed correctly, after a line of red paint this time and MORE clearcoat over all. Looks good.

When I got the project, car had no cat or muffler on it and bad exhaust leaks.
I'd say we care that the cat smoothes out the exhaust more than its effects on converting emissions gasses, LOL

This is the fourth one, the first three, the guys bailed on selling what they posted.
Wish me luck and GOOD vibes. THANKS
However, this one comes through, it'll be worth it.
