Concidering to re-paint the exteriour myself too....

Was thinking if I could mount the fenders on the body with longer bolts so I could paint them the same time and be able to get the paint penetrate in behind the fender beadings too. Just like in this factory picture:

Yes, I would guess they are Euro tailights.

When I was going to mount the case oilcover in the bottom I found out that the PO had pulled the threads for one stud...

Luckily they had the Wurth's Time-Sert set at my work so I got new threads for the stud easily. Now the engine should not mark it's spot due to that...

Nice job on the engine Hebster! Fantasy Factory speed look!

When you contact VwVeteranen again tell Klaus (Uzo) Herr Kritz says Hallo! I've spent many many days digging thru his goldmine! Good Times!

The plastic vapor barrier on the doors is SO important....yet I too rarely see it any more.

When painting the exterior, so many guys paint each part(doors-fenders-hood-decklid-light housings, etc..) off the car.....and thats why on SO MANY cars the paint appears to be slighty off color between components,...slightest variations in temp/humidity/evaporation of solvent/exhaust flow/etc.. can make large changes to the finished color... YES, do paint your car like the cool old factory foto....you'll get a nice even colored paint job!! Can't wait to see it all sprayed and assembled!!
Aloha!

Nice job!!! What are you guys allowed to spray over there, or what did you use? When I go to Norway to teach, they all use the PPG Enviro system. Works pretty good.

I used Standox acrylic 2k paint. The paintshop had some oldstock acrylic they could mix the colour from. Getting more and more hard to find real acrylic here too...

Thanks guys!
I guess it is ok.

Did do it myself and outside. Unfortunately the spring had got that far here now too so the small insects thought it would be fun swiming in the paint...

Got a few spots where they got stuck. Decided to just squize them lighty into the paint so they wouldn't crawl all over the car. That way I should be able to polish off them leaving just minor marks from the tiny legs...

So, started sanding down the new paint.

And then refurbish it again.

First sanded it with P1500, then some 3000 and then polish.

See the difference in the finished fender (to the left) and the non touched orangepeel on the quarterpanel to the right..

YAY buffing ! Thats actually what I am taking a brake from right now. My feet are wet, my hands are soggy and my shoulders hurt. On the bright side, I'm getting paid for my job

How do you do the buffing? In this case I simply sanded down the orangepeel with some Polarstar P1500. (drysanded with a random orbital DA) Just to smooth out the hispots of the orangepeel.

Then wetsanded with Abralon 3000 to get up the gloss again and finished with Polarshine rubbing compound.

Will still apply a layer of Simoniz wax for protection too.

I've got the wet DA at the shop. Start off with the runs and dirt getting them taken care of with a razor blade and 1000 grit. Then jump into it with 1500 on the DA wet and then wet 3. Half the time after the 3000 you almost don't even need to buff it. I go over it with a rubbing compound and a gray pad and finish it off with a swirl remover/waxing compound. Its not really that hard of work, but by the time you're done you don't ever want to see a buffer, car, or even hear the work "wax" again
