This week paint went into the gun and on the interior. Three coats of Aga Blue Glasurit. It was very exciting to actually lay down some paint this week even if it was just 1/2 quart.

great work Freddie as always... :-)

1 question please: how do you handle the mounting holes of the parts that you have powder coated as I am told if you have any coating on the immediate area under a nut or fastener that it will loosen up as the powder coat does not allow the fastener to grip/bite into the surface of part which now has powder coat on it vs. bare/plated metal originally...

Thx for sharing & keep up the great work & sharing... Bob

Nice chromed gauges look really nice on fresh painted dash. Here is the paint I highly recommend for the dashes. Easy to use and correct look for metal dashes...SEM Trim Black. Also scracth resistant.

TIP: Make sure the dash is well prepared meaning sanded smoothly with no dirt. SEM Trim Black is not forgiving at all it shows everything because it lays down so smooth.

Finally! the project I have been waiting for...restoring the wood dash and steering wheel. I have a love for working on wood. During my years of volunteer work in Brookly New York, I picked up the art of wood finishing. I restored many unique furniture pieces. So, when I get an opportunity to work on wood pieces, I bring my A game. The process is not rocket science. The important thing is to sand carefully so that you don't round off the edges and, being patient by letting the urathane cure between coats. I start the sanding with 180 grit taking all the old lacquer off down to bare wood. I will use some air tools on the flats and the backside of the wheel. I use a soft scratch wheel to get into the edges. I use the same wheel to strip the metal on the wheel paddles. When PORSCHE glued the metal paddles onto the wood, they used a very strong black bonding glue that with time, it penetrated the wood thus, causing black spots where the metal bonds to the wood...stay tuned let's see how we do on this one.

Okay I'm going to hi-jack my own thread..Here is a nice hole-in-the-wall burger joint located in Central Point Oregon on hwy 99 just right off hwy 5. A few years ago I jumped on the In and out burger wagon. Back then I thought to myself...I have finally found the perfect burger! I realized I had lied to myself when for the first time, I tasted a Five Guys burger. Guess what? Five Guys burgers have nothing on this place, Jaspers Cafe in Central Point OR. The juices from the burger ran down my arm making the burger that more tasty. If your ever in the area, hit this place up. Warning though, the order line goes out the front door. Check out the menu. It's a good thing my wife does not read my postings...she is a nutrionist and thinks burgers are not that healthy ; )

TIP: Have an appetite of a lion before you go.

Freddie,
I have been quietly following your rebuild thread. Your wood trim came out beautiful! I love that look in the early cars...

Keep up the good work. You're an inspiration to me as I proceed forward with my '73. Thanks!

Thanks guys for all your wonderful comments and cheers. I have now sprayed Aga Blue on the car...how exciting is that! For as many times as I have sprayed 911's, it always feels like the first time, exhilarating. Of course your paint work is only as good as what you have done to prepare the panel from metal conditioning, metal work, blocking and more blocking, primers and then the final spray. You don't get a flawless paint job like this out of pure luck. It takes sticking to a procedures that is maticulous and consistent. This is a single stage Glasurit high gloss durable finish...
