ABOUT THE CAR:

The AMC Javelin is an American front-engine, rear wheel drive, two-door hardtop manufactured and marketed by AMC in two generations, 1968-1970 and 1971-1974. Styled by Dick Teague, the Javelin was available in a range of trim and engine levels, from economical pony car to muscle car variants. In addition to manufacture in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Javelins were assembled under license in Germany, Mexico, Venezuela, as well as Australia —and were marketed globally. (Wikipedia)


BEFORE...

This car came in for a cosmetic restoration, meaning body work, patch panel and a paint job.

Our client has chosen to do a complete mechanical, paint & body workover on this car including installing a complete new interior. 


DURING...

Initially we have removed the engine and components under the hood to prepare for the next phase. 

The project includes media blasting the car, examining the body and replacing any necessary patch panels. All of the exposed rusted out areas will be patched. Then we will epoxy coat the body, do any necessary body work, completely block sand the body, 3 coats of paint applied along with 3 coats of clear coat, wet sand the body and then buff to a pristine shine.

Once the body work is completed and the car is painted the engine will be reinstalled along with any necessary hoses or replacement parts in the engine compartment.

The vehicle will undergo a final Quality Control inspection by 3 levels of management, then prepared for delivery or pick up by the client.

Got the interior sections of these done. Trunk lid, hood, fenders and doors are all painted. Once they are dry they will flip them over and paint the exterior.

Started the new paint job, beautiful gold on the bottom. Waiting to get the black paint on the top half, should have pictures up of that very soon.
