I am repainting my coupe because of rust, door dings, and scratches. It had a lot of rust in the trunk area and on the roof. I stripped the whole car, grinded all the rust off and welded the holes. While I was at it, I shaved the antenna and the emblem holes. Now, everything is ready for primer. I will primer it tomorrow, and get it painted on the weekend. I decided to paint it Nighthawk Black Pearl because its a newer color and i like it more than Granada Black.

Here are the progress pics:

Nice work russian! Im balls deep into my first bodywork/repaint ordeal... How hard is it to remove the front and rear windshields? I wanna do that to do the job right. Here is a couple pictures of my project...


I made this cut at first but later opted to remove the whole thing

This is my donor panel

This pick was taken about two months ago. Since then new metal has been welded in everywhere rust is I'm waiting to finish for a complete DIY on quarter panel replacement
