1965 Corvair Monza 4 speed

Post by Techmaven on October 18th 2008, 11:16 pm

Body is super straight and really not alot of repair needed as far as I can tell so far. Rustoleum red, anyone? Roll or spray?

I blocked down a section of the engine lid and under the crappy synthetic (Old MAACO) enamel, is what looks to be ruddy brown primer and the factory paint below that. I'm going to take the top layer off with a jitterbug and 180 grit and see where I stand.

Still on hold due to COLD weather and the fact that this will be a driveway project.

If you have the place and feel comfortable spraying, I would do that. It will be a lot faster and a lot less work. Rolling is fine when you don't have the space, tools, experiance or just don't want the fumes. Each way has its good and bad points. Good luck which either way you go.

post pics before you sand and after its dry. I gotta spray my 2002 cavy next year and I'm curious how much sanding in the compound curves I'll have to do

RoboGeek, The amount of sanding in your compound curves will be in direst relation to the amount of orange peel you have there, But then I'm sure you knew that. Laughing

yeah.. I'm just looking at that hood and if the spray side dries that nice, sanding will be much easier
