Re: Paint and Interior
When I took my 67 convertible in for color change paint job it had been my daily driver for a while. But I took off everything I could including the complete interior. I did not remove the glass or conv. top. This saved me hours and hours of paid labor and was easily in my skill wheelhouse.
Unbeknownst to me beforehand, the body shop then pulled the doors, hood, fenders and trunk lid. They did not pull the glass or top and replaced/realigned all the sheetmetal after paint.
Paint job came out fantastic except for some reason they painted the metal portion of the door tops the outside color. Easy fix.
Much slower going back together once I got it home. New gaskets everywhere. Then the grill didnít look up to par. Then the bumpers didnít look very shiny, etc, etc. It just cascaded.
