Painting the Baja
Posted 09 September 2003 - 11:43 AM
Cool, huh. The hood scoop is functional. A sheet metal duct directs air straight into the weber carb. I have the entire interior stripped out of the car (minus the two front seats and the dash). I even spent the time to remove the layer sound-deadening material inside the car. Everything I removed weighed about 100lbs. Good stuff.
I'll update with pictures when I'm finished (which should be within a couple weeks). I call it "The Baja"

I'm doing something similar... a new paintjob, new interior, seats reupholstered, ect.
I'm sure that the real car will look great, as the picture is a little promising (but itself looks okay)
you could probably do without the "rekognize" on the side of the body.

Looks good to me... is that a Gen 1 RS / Gen 2 WRX scoop on there?

You're in Denver? Why don't you come out and show that thing off at the Subaru Bar B Que next weekend? Details about the get together are in the Meet/Greet forum.

Yes, that is a "WRX Style" hood scoop on there. I figured I'd keep it in the family. Also the two colors of paint are both original Subaru colors. High Tech Red and Glacier White. I like to keep it in the family. Err.. I mean with cars......
A lot of prep work went into this. I completely sanded the car down to the original primer with a non-orbital sander. I fixed all dents and rust and primered/painted/clearcoated using a gravity gun. I estimate a total of 30 hours of work and $500 in paint/supplies. I will never do it again.

I agree, painting a car is a lot of work... I spray painted my Explorer in the driveway in Wyoming over a few months (stupid wind never stops here)... It doesn't look bad, but a lot of work... and despite my efforts to cover the glass, I got overspray all over the place from the wind, so I had to get all that off the windows :madder:...
But yeah... I still like your paint job
