|Body - Ragtop|
Kermit took the car to Kareem Abouzeid the owner of Knockout Collision Repair in Chico, CA to massage the body. The car was a daily driver for a long time so it had a fair share of dents and dings.
As you can see, under the white paint was some of the original java green. The car will soon be back to the color it left the factory.
Where did everything go? Boy these little German cars are easy to strip down too. I heard that they like to run more than a LBC, but I am not sure if I believe that.
As you can tell the car has been stripped down to bare metal, and coated with a PPG Poly Primer. Both the interior and exterior were gutted.
Kareem really gave his soul to this project. I know that he was being hounded regularly, but he made sure there was not a single ripple in the paint job. This is the kind of service that is just hard to find. I would recommend him to anyone with a classic. (If I get too lazy I might truck my Frogeye to him).
Kareem cut out any questionable areas and welded in patch panels that even an expert like myself had a hard time spotting the repairs.
I love watching a professional at work. It is so hard to find this in LA. Not only that it is about 40% cheaper in Chico because the overhead and insurance is so much less.
