Before and After Avanti Paint

Why perfection of pre-paint body work is important.

The curved body lines of the Avanti are unforgiving. Well done bodywork is a beautiful sight showing the car paint color at its best, but sloppy fiberglass work is equally as visible. There are no short cuts when working with a fiberglass body.

There are often barely visible pinholes in the fiberglass, which can be overlooked. There can be small gaps in body panel edges which are caused by glue voids. Loose body panel components must be correctly re-bonded or outer skin wobbles and rippling will occur. Cracks must ground back and re-glassed with correct glue to glass ratios or repair will shrink or expand at different rates from surrounding fiberglass material. When body panels are rehung on car, contouring for correct panel alignment and gap is usually needed.
