If the rain lets up I will get some fresh pics as it sits now.
Looks great so far!
Looks like a clone of my car! Great find! What are you thinking for fixing up the paint? Mine is going to need it soon and I am trying to figure out exactly how to do it.
Im going to try the rustoleum automotive black and see how it turns out. My grill is the smallest thing that needs paint so I will get me a can of rustoleum automotive primer, black, and clear coat. I will try this weekend. so you will get to hopefully see a nice looking grill.
Here are the results of the rustoleum paint.
In a few days I will buff it. Also my other escort finally rolled over 100000 miles.
Well I removed the license plate bracket. Looks alot better and now I can actually clean behind the plate periodically. Also I took a better pick of my passenger seat Im not sure how it got tore up like that but im swapi g seats any way.
You may also notice in the picture my quick fix for broken lap belt retainers, requires nothing.
I bet a dog ate the seat.
What did you use to buff the grill? I am starting a project of repainting similar to your project and have never buffed paint before so any info is helpful.
I just buffed it once with turtle wax solid rubbing compound and polish. I am going to get some polish thats meant for black paint. Ive used the rubbing compound and polish before it just takes alot of work. last time I used it it took about 4 applications of each to really smooth it out then a nice 3 coats of wax for that i initial protection.
