Evening all, thought I would start a ongoing thread for my home re-spray.
Doing a full body respray from Blenheim Silver to Dark admiralty grey in 2K acrylic. It’s going to take a couple of months I think with evenings and weekends to do it all.
If anyone has any tips or tricks or suggestions as I go along please feel free to comment!
Here she is at the moment, well that was a few months ago now. Doesn’t look too bad from afar.
More and more trim I’ve removed the more and more corrosion I’ve been finding. Lucky enough nothing too bag, just surface rust.
Forgot to take photos of the rust on the drivers side. A quick Dremmel and then a spray with some Hammerite just to keep the bare metal protected while I wait for the supply’s for the re-spray. Need to get some Alachrom from work to treat the aluminium corrosion prior to priming though.
I stress the hammerite is temporary just to keep the surface rust away for the week while I get set up.
Quite bad bi-metallic corrosion under the lightguard retainers. And a small dent I will try and pull them fill if I can.
All the bits turn up on Wednesday next week so I will continue with the strip and corrosion hunt this weekend! Hopefully not too much more to find...... haven’t removed the rear bumper yet! I think I will remove the panels and prime them away from the car as I have a stand, then I can do all the flatting back comfortably.
Already committed with the dremmel and the sanding block so there is no turning back now!!
