I was thinking about colors and I think you've convinced me with black

 

Hi There! Thanks for the comment... Just letting you know from experience, black is the most hardest color to paint... the preparation work is ridiculously time consuming!  Patience is not simply the ability to wait - it's how we behave while we're waiting. So if it doesn't kill you, I say do it!  ;)

 looks real good.........single stage???

 

Base and clear! This one is a driver! ;-)

Looks great Lisa. Where are you getting the body and paint work done? Is Le doing it, or is this one of his vendors in SoCal? Regardless, looks really nice, so congrats.

Thanks so much! Le is working exclusively with a body/paint professional who has done his 02s and E9's. This guy's work is stellar! Only his eyes and hands on the car... the quality is evidence in his work. I'm very pleased.

PAINTING something black's not so hard.  It's getting the body absolutely straight so it looks perfect, that's the real challenge!

(well, and then you have to wash it every time a breeze blows through, but that's another story.

 

After 17 years, Jenn's dark purple car is about ready for a respray, and she's thinking it should go black this time too.  And your pics are pretty convincing...

Lisa, the car is absolutely beautiful.

I can imagine it in my mind with the petri sports steering wheel, custom seats with grommets, and BBS style wheels you have chosen. A very beautiful holistic combination. As mentioned before I have great admiration for your attention to detail, patience and willingness to do the job correctly. My inner adolescent can rarely achieve this level of patience- and gentle waiting.

 

sincerely, Peter
