02-07-11 My car has finally made it into the body shop after 5 years of ownership. I thought the paint was okay, just fading a little on top and maybe needing a few dings covered up.. boy was I ever wrong! fortunately I can stop over anytime during work since it's getting painted at my dealership, because i can take some good progress pics. Ray Ray, our best bodyman called me over to look at the progress today, and showed me the nightmare underneath my top coat of paint.. we've counted 5 coats not counting primer and panels that come from other cars! One coat of paint was actually applied without sanding the previous layer, the layer underneath was actually still shiny! The good thing is no rust found except at the rear truck, and only a small section that tey're going to weld up for me.
