Porsche Progress Report 3

The rain finally subsided today and the 911 came out of the paint booth into the sunlight. Color match is very good and the paint application is excellent. Today they will buff the clear-coat, hang the door, and reinstall the side window. If all proceeds as planned, the car will be done on Friday. Woohoo!
It’s really amazing to see how much paint technology has changed since I helped Dan paint the FIAT 28 years ago. Computer color-matching, more environmentally friendly paints, rapid drying in heated booths — none of that existed back in the day.
Somethings haven’t changed, however, such as the fact that good prep work makes for a better finished product. I think this is turning out very well.
