Bare metal on a GT4...

been there, done that on a GT4...be prepared to find Factory bondo 5/16's of inch or more in places over the sheet metal...
good luck to both Jay and Dan with the project, you'll need a bit along the way...it's a big, big job...every one of those lines will have to be painstakingly recreated.
those suttle disappearing lines and gentling rolling shoulders are especially tricky...best to have another one close by for comparison.
hundreds of hours of 'fun' ahead !

all the best Jay,

brett

Brett-

Yeah I'm very curious to see what's under that paint-

As you and I discussed earlier in the year a good GT4 is a pretty special thing- even if the marketplace does not reflect it at this point.

I'll be sure to post some good photos and videos when she's all finished!


Jay

Didnt find any on mine either, just lead filling seams and high-build primer. No real reason for bondo unless it was repaired in the past. Ferrari was great at using lead and metal finishing rather than cheesing it up.

I was wondering about that - surely care was taken not to over heat any sections, but why wasn't paint stripper used?

Soda blasting or media blasting is best, no chemical stripper residue in seams and joints to come back and haunt the painter.

No blasting Ferrari with anything

Blasting makes the biggest mess,you can never get rid of all the media,its gets in everywhere and inevitably some will show up when your blowing color.The site of that sander running over the fender ridges,the panels all scratched up,that sander is removing a lot of metal,that looks really awefull,sorry, I apologise for saying that. That GT4 had thin paint,chemical stripping it would be a breeze,apply twice as much as needed and wash it off. Nice smooth body,not scratched up. The body man will use lights to scan the reflections in the bare metal,the scratches impede reflections,heck they are distortion. Painting Ferrari & Rolls require fanatic attention to detail,nooks and cranies,seams and all.

Yup. Do you ever find a grinder in an aircraft painting hangar? Nope. Chem strip, clean, sand, clean, prime, clean, block, block, block, etc. Sad to see this happen to a classic car.

Media blasting makes a mess. Parts of the car will be Chemically stripped. We start off coarse and switch to fine sand paper as we work through primer and bondo. By the time we reach bare metal the sand paper is so fine you can use it to wet sand orange peal out of paint.
