My 1974 Porsche 911 gets a new paint job!
I started the paint preparation part of this project in Feb 03. Since I’m pretty slow (no wise cracks!), it’s taken me a while to get to the point where I could apply 4-6 coats of primer with a hardener added. I sanded the body using 220 grit sandpaper using both the wet & dry method depending on the situation.. As you probably know, the 911 is a hugely complex vehicle and the body has many compound curves.

I’ll post more photos as I get more work done. BTW, I finally decided on the color – it’s definitely going to be Guards Red – the latest variation as used on late 996s. Unless I change my mind again. ;-)
