Hi, This is my 83 Datsun 200sx, I just have pics ater 1st month at paint shop :).
This was some weeks after taking the car to paint shop,
Hood (bonnet) was already removed to prepare for painting (It was a new NOS HOOD, straight as new),you can see loads of dust here and there.
Radiator support had some bad damage at driver's side, plus some dings here and there, from old crashes before it was mine, (already repaired).
Trunk view after plastic filler before gray primering.
Trunk view. crashed close to fuel filler door. it was pretty bad, RR tailight was destroyed and my rear bumper flight about 30 feet away. (on a 2-way street. A mad driver tried to pass me. while other car was coming in front of us. I decided to give him some room to pass me but my front bumper hooked his rear and made me crash with a colission bar at rear right side.
Damage was already repaired crash can't be seen at this point.
left rear side. after peeling all,paint & old plastic filler, we found it had a bad crash below old bondo. so rear panel was heated and hammered by hand & straightened up. now it looks almost perfect. trunk was already gray primered
We can see the bad crash from inside the trunk,(the white part next to fuel filler, already straightened up, some bondo was used to disguise it, all white parts had minor dings that were fixed up.
here we can see, before & after pics of trunk door,it had some small dinngs. (those white looking things) those were fixed too.
Now let's see what's going inside the painting cabin...
Both front fenders were bought used, very straight BTW,old black paint was removed and new white paint filler was applied.
The same goes for the new hood (bonnet) already prepared with white paint filler. waiting for assembling
This is the driver's door, old paint was already removed and prepared for painting. white paint filler was used on it too, some dings found after are being repaired.
This one is passenger door, interior already painted with final color, (I asked them to paint it to be sure if I liked the final color) (outside ready for final painting)
This is the rear bumper that felt like a bird after it's 30 feet flight :) old paint was sanded out, and gray primered. before white paint filler.
Another view of the car, one week after.
rear-end was already straightened/bondoed/primered & sanded. :) niceey
Starting to apply white paint filler to door frames
