This classic came to us needing some TLC. It will be a body off driver restoration. At the time the car came to our shop, it was agreed by the owner to have a red exterior with white interior. The Thunderbird will have a matching red hardtop. It will have a 312 engine and a 4 barrel carburetor. It will have power steering, an automatic transmission, power brakes, TC radio, fender skirts, and wide white wall radials.
The doors, deck lid, and hood are chemically stripped down to the bare metal in preparation for the first step in the primer process.
The next step in the process is the primer. Our shop uses two coats of specific primer for etching. After this dries, the next step is to apply three to four coats of a urethane primer.
