At vw fest I had an unfortunate incident with a friend of mine, which unfortunately resulted in me requiring a new rear door.
Weve been so busy at work that I've only just managed to get it in and painted this week. So here's a few pics. I would love to know what you think. You may notice I painted a few extras while I was at it
I will be also giving it a full detail once it's back together so the detailed pics will follow. Hope you like!
i painted the door earlier and then prepared the full side for blend (plus a few little chips etc)
Degrease and mask ready for paint.
Paint. After spot priming with wet on wet primer I then applied the white ground coat (Stage 1)
Followed by the red pearl coat (Stage 2) I then Applied 2 coats of Spies Hecker clear coat (Stage 3)
(All with the appropriate flash off times in between)
De mask (after 40 minute bake)
That is pretty much how I left it at 5pm yesterday. I'm back at work Monday and will be
flatting and polishing every painted panel to match the texture of the rest of the car (yes I did flat and polish the whole car)
then I will be detailing the whole car for the bestest shiniest results (proper England) Watch out for the rest of the pics next week.
hope you like!!
