This past weekend, we spotted over a few sections with a second coat of 2k primer. This will ready us for our final round of block sanding before final paint.
We continue block sanding our 911 in preparation for paint. It's a slow process when we're working on it just a few days a week.
We started block sanding our 911 this week, after letting the 2k primer cure for about 10 days.
We trailered our 911 down to a buddy's paint booth for a long weekend of work. We got the car scuffed, blasted and masked—ready for its first coats of new paint.
We're continuing our work on the 1973 911, including pulling the windows out in preparation for paint.
We're still chipping (well, grinding) away at our 911 to get it back to the original paint surface where we can. Portions of the car are back to bare steel. We're taking care to remove all previous filler so we can start fresh.
We get the pedal cluster back in our 911 and continue on the preparation for paint.
Initially, we thought we were just going to get this car running and leave the paint as-is. However, we're starting to go down that slippery slope towards a full restoration. As Br'er Rabbit would say, "Please don't throw us in that briar patch..."
We reinstalled the engine in our 911T over the weekend—and get it running after 15 years of dormancy.
Our Blue 911s comes home from the shop after being gone for nearly 9 months.
