Project KP30: The take over the breaks over. Respray Part #1

From Car show to no-go. The week off work is booked and the Starlet is stripped!

Now don’t get me wrong, the paint wasn’t bad but, between rushing it originally to get it done for a car show, 9 months of daily driving, 3 weeks of hardcore winter use and 3 summers of shows it was starting look a bit tired. That, and in true Toyota fashion, it has gained a couple of blebs and is trying to return to nature!

Round the filler is the worst bit:

I collected all the paint and materials together. The good news is all this talk of going to water-based is, for now, rubbish. Two-pack is going to be available for a while longer!

This just shows how quick I had to put it together after painting it; when I took the numberplate off it pulled the paint off! Check out the OG colour showing.

This needs a roll cage.

There’s not much to it, just one afternoon and 4 boxes of stuff. This is why I love old cars!

Plan is to get it Painted and MOT’d by the end of the Month then hope fully it is being re-shot for a Retro Cars Mag fearture (fingers crossed!!).
