The younger brother reporting in... Iím good with Daytona Blue since it was original to this car. Changing the color, I think, would always bother me a little bit in the back of my mind..! Carry on - youíre doing great stripping the paint and having so much fun. I donít want to take any of that away from you, LOL.

Default More Stripping.

I am so glad we decided to completely strip the paint down to bare fiberglass. We knew the Vette took a shot to the front in a parking lot incident.
Some of the history we now know by stripping.
1 Small cracks are exposed.
2 Areas that have been worked exposed.
3 Car was stripped 40 plus years ago for a repaint.
4 Top of Passenger Front Fender was replaced during first repaint.
5 Bottom of Passenger Front Fender was the only major body panel that retains the Daytona Blue base paint.

Replacement top Fender

I used a combination of paint stripper, lacquer thinner with scotchbrite, and a heat gun on the inner fenders. I will likely do the raptor bedliner spray.

Default That is clean.

You worked your butt off to get it that clean. Almost a shame to cover it.
