My VR6 and Storm

Recommended Posts

So, as nice as the slam panel has turned out, it appears to be off a 16v. I removed it from the VR6 breaker I have so I’m not completely to blame 🤣

No matter, I’ve got another one I can give the same treatment, plus it’ll allow me to fit some of the stainless parts I’m sure I bought a while ago

That's funny! MGR parts? What do you think of the quality?

I’ve got mgr and oe. I’ve yet to fit the mgr, although the sizes seem the very same so I’ve no worries about fitment. I’ve got a set of their bonnet pins I’ll be fitting as well. I painted the stainless black as I’m not wanting shiny 😁

I agree with you, black looks better than shinny, if they were brushed I might consider... Looks good!

So, second attempt at the slam panel and it’s ok, not perfect but that’s ok, it won’t be a show pony 😁

Nice one Martin, looks great! Bit of 1200 then 2000 grit sanding, then a good cut & polish and it'll stand up to even close scrutiny though. 👌

Thanks mate, I’ll keep that in mind, I’m guessing that’ll help with the orange peel effect? Although I’m just delighted it’s red 😁

 

The wings are nearly ready

Looking like it now. 
If you look at the first page on my thread I show the results of orange peel/shrinkage removal, but I started with 1500 and finished with 2000 for quicker buffing. It truly is amazing the finish you can get if you have applied enough clear coat.

Thanks mate, I’ll have a look, I think I’ve got enough clear coat on, although I’m not exactly sure what the correct amount is? I’ve put on 4 coats

 I’ve found it best to leave it a few weeks if you can for it to harden off properly too. 
You should be good with 4 coats.

Knowing my usual timescale, a few weeks won’t be a problem , saying that, proper curing shouldn’t be an issue as my garage is heated, running off the house central heating........ and my missus likes the house roasting so the garage is like a hot house
