    Lacquer on Trans-am taking a turn for the worse

    Well over the years there has been a few stone chips on the hood, water has gotten under the lacquer, and after a jet wash, some of it has flaked off.
    It needs a respray. So have taken it near to where i work to get a quote, they done the repair work on the Kia. They have taken a few photos, and will see what they come back with.

    Thanks for the linky.

    3 main things to sort this year. Paintwork, suspension, extend garage. (oil consumption issue may be held off until wider garage and whip engine out) so need to try and balance expenditure. Something needs to be done with the paint work, maybe something to keep it tidy for now, and I can perhaps do suspension.

    You could always do what Rolls Royce used too. Hand paint with enamel paint and then wet sand it back.....!

    They also did the nose cone on the Vette, and the 10th anniversary graphics on the 79 Trans-Am.

    This is what it looks like at the moment.

    If I was to get the whole car painted then I would be tempted to run it up to Swindon. Would be nice with an all over freshen up.

    What happened to Sponge Bob wrap?

    Why don’t you run the car up to them anyway? And least with a quote for a complete spray job you know what your looking at.
    Leave the suspension- I’m aware of something game changing coming in that department....!
