Preserve/Restore: GW - Returning from the Paint-shop soon!

Well... It's been almost three months but the old-girl is all newly painted, getting her final sanding and buffing and due home from the paint-shop soon!



Here's the scoop... Since all the windows, hood, tailgate, etc., are off; What else should I replace now instead of later when it would be more difficult? Thinking like... New/replacement door-actuators if available? Or? Suggestions?

Looking to paint mine soon too. Can I ask what brand of paint? single stage or two stage? Primered before painting or just scuffed? Ballpark cost?
TIA!

Unfortunately I don't know the names of the paint/clearcoat. Sanded/not-primed. But I'll ask as I'm going to see it for the first time tomorrow. The lowest price I received for a strip-down job without removing the woodgrain/trim, dashboard and headliner was $4,500; Then up to $6,000 for rotisserie. By far... The most unexpected time-consuming issues were removing/re-installing the rear wing-windows, and taping-off the woodgrain/trim. Then there is the do-it-yourself version, or MAACO for what I understand is around $1,500.

Looks great! That has to be exciting!

I'm starting the search for someone to paint mine- we'll see how it goes.

That looks GREAT! $4500 and they took the trim bits off or did you prep beforehand? I'm starting my penny jar for my truck, so it's nice to know ball park figures.

Thanks.

Smile She has a new coat! (New pics)

I had removed most of the trim/chrome including the bumpers. Not the door-handles as they were best removed after the window glass/guts.

Are you going to add any sound deadening to the floor and inside the doors?

Good question. What I remember reading here is... To at least use a heavy-plastic between the inside door-panel and door.

Other suggestions for the doors/panels?


As for the floor... I have the original carpet and padding to re-install.

Should I put something additional under the carpet? A how about the cargo area?


Thanks for your help! Crist

Make sure the plastic between the door panel and the doors gets sealed to the doors well- that keeps the water out.

I'd also install a screen under your cowl vent by the wipers to keep debris out of the vent area.

As far as under the carpet- I'd install dynamat or something similar throughout then entire interior. There have been posts here with people using some similar material from Lowes or Home Depot. If I can find that post I'll link it here.
