Re: My Coupe at the Panel beaters

Yeah i know the complete history ... My grandfather had bought it new... the door damage was done in adelaide while he was fishing one day ... someone backed into him. He didn't tell me till I questioned him about the bog in the door. The plans are a full respray in 2pac Vivid Blue pearl...

Re: My Coupe at the Panel beaters

Before paint take the front eyebrows off and paint them separate as otherwise it looks tacky.
What a nice clean machine and from the family as well, lucky,lucky

Re: My Coupe at the Panel beaters

You lucky so and so. The car is in nice shape by the looks in the photo's it had a little bit of rust in the boot (behind the bumper) that they have fish oiled?

Mine is in a similar state at the moment (back to it's undies) but is not in as good nick as yours, well done for getting it off your grandfather.
