Title: My Car is Rebelling
Post by TX 73 stock on May 3rd, 2013 at 8:16am
as you know, I'm selling my 73. a while back, I cracked the front bumper. this got worse and worse and finally, had a talk with my old friend BUBBA and decided to duck-it with blue duct tape. This looked great from 15 feet. anyway, since I'm selling it, I decided I'd remove the tape and try to fix it. I cleaned it real good and bondo'd it. it really came out good, flat and smooth, I also bought paint at the auto paint store ( love that smell ). mixed and sprayed and it was awesome. being picky, I went to wet sand it and was going to hit it 1 more time and while I was masking it, the whole freaking thing went pop and fell to the ground. CRAP. I'm actually glad it did this because after looking at it, it would have snapped off once someone hit a bump or a hundred  :D. Buying a new bumper today. I did get a chance to buy a decent sprayer and will have plenty of Targa blue left over for the bike project 8-)
