    Waiting for the "before and after" shots of the hands when it gets to wetsanding At least they'll be soft as...

    I think I just realised why you want different coloured primers etc.......... The reason I have used the guide coat is you sand the guidecoat with about 600 wet 'n' dry, using lots of water and big circles until you have sanded all traced of the guide coat off. Once you have sanded the guide coat off (ie: can't see it anywhere) STOP That area is now level and near enough to perfect ready for top coat. If you sand through to the metal in any places before you manage to sand the guide coat off (big circles with the sanding block remember) your preperation was no good .... Go back to step one and do preparation correctly.

    Another 1.5hours ... upto 9.5hours now.

    I peeled off all the center door trims (it'll probably get more dents over the next few weeks without these than it has in the last 21years with them in place ). It took quite a bit of time with a razor blade to remove the double sided tape from the doors. Removed the rear sill trims and marked the dents on the doors.

    The only panel on the car that has been resprayed and isn't original factory paint is the rear left quarter panel... Unfortunatly I have now found the repair is [email protected] I don't know how a bodyshop can do such a dodgy job (no doubt an insurance job very early in the cars life). I'm glad the rest of the car is how it's left the factory if this is going to be the repair standard.

    Also I got the black gutter trims off without damage by rolling them up and off the gutter. Starting and the windscreen and slowly working my way back. More irreplacable trim removed without damage

    time for bed.

    OMG John,

    I have just realised, I must have chatted to you as a young lad somewhere in WA, as I still tell mates the story of an R8 that was painted with signwriter paint with a brush!

    I thought it looked awesome, it must have been just after the second coat. I wonder if it could be applied with a spray gun.. hmmm.

    It is a small world.

    I dunno why I didn't click from your avitar, I guess it looks so shiney! how does she polish up these days?

    What a small world. I presume it was at a classic car day at Whiteman Park (I took the R8 about 6-8 years back, before we bought the 16TS) or a French Car Day. Well the paint is fine, hardly faded at all. It isn't the most opaque but it is basically in good condition. Polish? I did do that once, must have been about 5 years back.

    This year we will have the car's second 21st birthday party. We had the first in Adelaide in about 1995/6 before moving to Perth. This may be something of a record!

    The car lives under an expensive car cover (felt inside, PVC outside) and whilst this isn't ideal, in Perth's climate it is reasonable.

    Now if I could spare the money and had the time, better paint would be desirable. But in the meantime, providing no-one looks closely...... And it is protected at least.

    Cheers

    21 years? your car was only first used on jan 21 1986!!! It's still on the UK government database would you believe!

    And as for the gutter trim, I know where to get brand new black ones right now, if you ever needed them.

    I can't remember it's rego. It's good the way you can look up details like that (the links will not work as they expire quite quickly though).

    It wasn't possible to do this at all until last year I think.

    Well Guys,

    this is the only repair on the whole car, the only panel that doesn't have paint that is 4microns thick and you could scrape off your nail in the rear passenger quater panel... it was obvious when we bought the car that this panel had been resprayed as it was a slightly different colour ...

    When I removed the rubber strip I found this:



    What a bloody shocker ... This would have been an expensive repair (baked 2pack spray on it).... When I ran my hand over the repair it was up 'n' down Gee's what do you pay people for ... I'll have to find out who did this repair and send them my bill

    15minutes work with the air speedfile (including bogging it up) has near perfection. It's got a slight low where the bumper was (as I didn't remove the bumper until I noticed htis). I will finish this repair tomorrow .... Why can a backyarder fix something in 15minutes... yet the pro's have screwed it up over in the UK

    The different colour filler is what I've levelled it.

    Here's a good example... It's the only dent in the front passenger door (just a carpark battle scar from a 4WD's door).



    These are what really confused me when I tried to fix the hail damage on my first car (a renault 12)... I just *couldn't* get it straight (though it looks ok) I could still feel under my hand. Of course it stood out like dogs balls after the car was painted.

    All you need to do is tap the shiny metal bit down until it's level (or low) with a hammer and re-bog it and it'll come out perfect.

    No car to drive tomorrow ... I got carried away and haven't found time to finish these repairs so I can drive tomorow

    Anothe 1.5hours... Upto 11hours now.

    seeya,
    Shane L.

    Another 2hours tonight ...13hours now.

    I finished the rear quater panel

    [imghttp://shanescitshed.com/cx2500/paintcx/reardone.jpg[/img]

    The passenger door is done ...



    The drivers rear door. I was wrong, the cow hadn't headbutted the door once .... More like 4 bloody times (anyone for roast beef ).



    This actually took several goes as there was a few 'high' bits I needed to tap down to get it right.



    I'll explain how I removed the picnic shelf from the bootlid too .... Talk about a bloody drama ... It's actually quite easy now I've done one. This time it took an hour ... Next time 10minutes ... I thought I'd smashed the bloody plastic retainers on it

    She's going to look really flashto drive to work tomorrow

    Smiffy/Cgat, any ideas how the rivets are installed on the new bootlid for the spoiler, or were they just screwed on with self tappers

    I got one fitted to the silver one back in the days when I used to get the work done for me.
    There was holes in the rear of the spoiler attached to angle brackets which were rivetted to the bootlid. The holes for the screws were then filled with a black goo like Sikaflex.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    I take it you refer to the rivets on the bottom lip of the bootlid? They were definately not self tappers. They're like flat mushroom heads, that stand proud of the surrounding metal. The trim that sits on them, has white plastic inserts (which break readily) which you line up with those heads, and push the trim downwards to lock into position. I gather that new rivets and the plastic inserts are available. Cgat may have more info. Hope that helps,john s

    Hi John,

    yeah the plastic bits are ok, however as I'll be using an older boot lid the mushroom shaped rivets are not there. I may have to screw/bolt the plastic bits on. However the best bit about those mushroom shaped rivets is they require no hole in the sheetmetal (that will attract rust). I'd like to recreate this rivets that leave no scope for rust.... I doubt it'll be possible though ...

    You want me to see if I can locate some for you? I could do it in the morning at work. The other possibility, is using double sided trim tape, like the stuff that holds the badges on. My only concern there, is would the heat you guys get affect the adhiesive? john s

    Can you buy the rivets ??? If so they may well be here on local cars I'll ask at the paint shop the next time I'm there.

    Double sided tape ... Would it be strong enough ?? I don't want my picnic shelf dissapearing the rear view mirror at speed

    Do you know how the rivets work ?? Do they leave scope for rust if they are done by a backyarder ?? I'm assuming you drill a holes, poke the rivet through and mash the other end of the rivet flat from inside the bootlid.

    Here is the crunch. How these rivets are applied is a mystery, as I've never used them. I suppose they must be a seperate part, as I can't immagine them making up a whole new tool to press virtually identical body panels.
    Other cars that use these rivets are the BX 16v, the AXGT, and if my memory serves, even late series 1 CX's, which have the smaller bootlid spoiler. If you can find one of those, the rivets are I think spaced the same as for the picnick table of the turbo!
    It was a long time since I took my spare one off, so read between the lines a bit!

    Other cars that use these rivets are the BX 16v, the AXGT, and if my memory serves, even late series 1 CX's, which have the smaller bootlid spoiler. If you can find one of those, the rivets are I think spaced the same as for the picnick table of the turbo!
    It was a long time since I took my spare one off, so read between the lines a bit!
    Thanks Smiffy,

    I thought you may have used the rivets before on one of your cars

    I'll ask around, and if all else fails, simply bolt the plastic retainers on, painting the holes with serveral coats of POR15 (after all this whole area is hidden.

    I also now can chase up some perspex inserts for the picnic shelf too (as I can copy the old ones).

    Remember to take some piccies, as I need to swap the picknic table on my car when I get round to painting her. The rubber is cracked. Those perspex windows are a pain in the bum, they go cloudy and turn green! I'll have new ones made for mine. I'll see if my little brother does plastic bending at school like I used to john s

    Wow! I'm hoping to get a restoration car sometime soon and I've just learned a heap, just from reading this thread.

    By the way, Shane - never mind the car - you have a great garage! Might have to come over one weekend with beer, just to play with your toys - er - power tools.

    Believe me when I tell you, you need to be dedicated to the cause!
    If you have a partner, you will need thick skin too, as they will be nagging at you to stop wasting your money and time, and go buy a newer car!
    It's at that point that I reccomend a sudden spell of

    Actually I don't have that many tools.... I what I do have has taken me 15years to accumulate (I have been collecting them since I was about 15years old ...). That's about the age I destroyed/lost every tool my father owned so I had to start getting my own

    Another 1.5hours last night .... 14.5hours now (SWMBO is starting to get really p!$$ed with me ).

    I fixed the dents in the roof last night and whipped the grill out for prep for primer.

    I'll post the piccies later.
