Hello. Just an introduction here. This is Ed's GT. I have started this thread in his name because its his car and he doesn't get on the internet much. We are tracking the progress here. Enjoy!











The bumper covers had to be stripped because of the cracks in the clear coat.
I ground it off with 80 grit. Then 180 grit.


High Build primer, guide coat and block sanding.










Got new sunroof tracks on the the way from the Fiero store.

Still investigating options.
Were definitely going with base coat clear coat for simplicity. KBC01 or C2C-KBC01 ( Don't understand the difference)
Any experience with that?

The headliner was not salvageable. Joann fabrics has holiday coupons in their App. 50% off the material was only 8.18$ For 1 yard.




Clean the old foam and glue off with 80 grit sandpaper.




Repair the visor mounts with fiberglass material..


2 coats of resin.






2 coats of DAP Weld Wood contact glue on the board and the material. Be careful not to super soak the material.


Carefully lay on the material losley and roll out with a clean roller.


Don't forget to leave enough edge material inn the middle to tuck it in with the sunroof trim.




Got the headliner done and up. The finger prints will relax out with time and heat.

I had to redo my headliner also... I have a T-top---- actually, not to mention as well ---- that I have your car combo almost exact T but with the beachwood interior instead.. but same medium red and gold rims.. that first picture was like looking back in time 😏

Anyway, for the headliner, my foam was crumbly in areas so I taped it all back in place..after, I wrapped all the foam with seran wrap because I was afraid that the fiberglass resin would eat the shape of the foam.. and put divots.. like your "finger prints" you say... Did you have any issues working with the resin and the foam?... I know certain glues eat foam also...?

Out of curiosity what type of flex agent needs to added to the paint and clear to avoid the spider web cracking on the poly/flexible body parts?

Interesting thread, I've painted a few of my own and need to address issues with cracking already. Super super disappointed it happened so I'm trying to learn what needs to be done.

Flex additive will make the paint/clear coat more flexible, but it is only temporary and intended only to allow the flexible bumper cover to be installed. The paint will harden over time to normal. I didn't use any on mine and had no trouble but i did sand all he original paint off down to the factory primer.

Here is a test panel finally.
(No dust control or appropriate dry time between coats. Rush job.)

DP90LF Primer (black) 3 coats




C2C KBC01 basecoat 3 coats




3 coats of HOK USC01 clearcoat.






And a comparison with the factory Dark Red Metallic.

This is Brandywine over OEM black and OEM silver metallic.
It looks like less black fade over the silver but not much.

Silver on the left.


Outside.

I got started but had to stop because it rained. To humid, the door skin started to blush on the corner. I fixed it with adhesion promoter. It still needs another coat.
