How not to stoe a GT

This is how my GT was stored after being rescued from Perana Motor Company.

I peeled the plastic off on Tuesday and then removed the wet but warm curtain covering the roof / boot / bonnet.

(Nothing like par-boiling a cars paint job)

The paint job is not exactly how I left it 15 months ago, in fact parts of paint job were removed still attatched to the curtain.

The good news is that the interior was dry as a bone. I was expecting it to be full of mould and mildew.

Now to sort the brakes / battery / alternator / and see if Chris Jooste finished what was paid for.

And buy a car cover and show my friends what covering a car is all about (not that it needs any protection now)

I'll get some more pics of how it looks now without the makeshift cover.

How it used to look 15 months ago

And after removing the plastic covering, curtain with paint, and giving it a wash

Judging by what looks like prep work under the paint, it's no wonder it buggered up. The primer looks like it was brushed on. The layers are very thick as well. Don't know if it's a bondo / bog or what it is....

Ji, just paint it with 2K, as the grey primer is Duco 300 and if it is in the sun it will happen in the hot JHB area. Smile as you still got a GT. :) Hope next parking is under a carport or garage. ;)

Good God..................poor GT. :cry:

Although; it being poorly stored may have been a blessing disguise since the paint issues were exposed (no pun intended) and said car can now be properly sprayed. :)
