  • Avanti --- No Longer Naked

    The last time we saw the 74 Avanti it had been stripped with razor blades. In the second pix after a ton of hours filling, sanding, filling and sanding it looks like a coat of many colors but reasonably straight.

    The third shot is covered in two coats of 2K to hopefully arrive at a straight body ready for painting.

    Hopefully it will be ready for paint before too long. I need to quit sanding pretty soon.

    How many hours to get it to this point?

      Good work, Bob. About the most FG work I ever did was to patch up a cedar strip rowboat. I was 15 and used FG resin with my mom's tea towels! Held water until a friend put his foot through the bottom. Doh! I'm sure your efforts will pay off.

        I'm afraid to add them up but 50+ in the scraping and maybe a little less in the prep so far. I'm doing it a few hours a day and I'm quite a bit slower than a body shop but you get the idea of why a paint job can get real expensive.

        Probably another 20 or so before paint.

          Bob,

          That is a FAR better sight than the last time we saw her! And each time is a huge improvement from the previous! It may seem slow on your end but from here you are certainly keeping a steady pace. It really won't be too long before you'll be rowing her through the gears. Enjoy!

          Cheers, Ken
