HISTORY of this car here: Adventures In Lotus Land

 

Read CAR PAINTING DONE RIGHT - Not so hard

 

Good Brain Radar and turned-on frontal lobes will allow you to tell the truth from total baloney.

Watch out- everybody has advice, and many will try to extract too much green from your wallet to share

a bit of practical knowledge.

 

PLEASE NOTE- Painting most cars is not NEARLY this labor intensive-- most car repainting can be done much more easily, and certainly without removing paint and doing the heavy body work as shown below. This Lotus project was particularly intensive as it is a valuable collector car, and fiberglass on top of that.

The clear majority of car painting jobs taken on by ordinary folk at home is considerably simpler and easier than this, and in fact can be accomplished in a single day once you've put together your materials.


The biggest job was first removing ALL of the 40 year old paint from the car-- this was the first re-paint of this car, and the old paint from the factory was soft enamel. The new paint available is far superior hard-as-nails acrylic urethane, but it is not wisely painted over the original stuff.

Once we started removing the paint, you could see the various layers of materials, and the stress cracks in the fiberglass- all which had to be fixed.

The original owner only drove this car 9,000 miles, 25 years before I obtained it, and most of those driving to the country club and back. See those star cracks in the back fenders below? Golf clubs in the "boot".

 

Removing the paint was HELL. Even with your frontal lobes on full blast. It took forever. But we made it out alive.

 

We hired two Creatures From The Black Lagoon to help. Two per light pod.

Once the old paint was off - the cracks in the fiberglass is fixed with avocado green goop, known as body putty. I used FOUR GALLONS of this stuff on this cracker jack box sized car.

Once you cover the ENTIRE car with this stuff- you then have to SAND THE ENTIRE CAR SMOOTH AGAIN.

By the time the car was completely sanded smooth again, four gallons of body putty was reduced down to two ounces on the car, and the rest was dust that saturated our yard, and the rest of the block. (Photo below by Weston Wells).  My sincere condolences to the neighbors.


The first coat of paint you put on isn't actually the pretty stuff you see, it's this flat gray PRIMER coat, which is kind of like glue between your car body and the nice pretty paint.

Thanks to modern technology, you can now roll this stuff on with a roller and do it in your living room if its raining outside (as it was here).  Generally I do not recommend roll-on primer except in rare cases and in hard to reach spots that you can just NOT get either an HVLP gun or a Preval sprayer into. Roll-on primer requires far more sanding than primer you spray on.

However, as here, in the case you've decided to roll on primer indoors, (I can hardly imagine anyone else trying this) make sure you have your gas mask on, all the windows and doors open, the fans on, and the air filters running. And get that stuff back outside the minute it stops raining- because the fumes are related to Zyklon-B. (gas chamber pellets) . Bad for brain cells.

Now if you wear a mask, and do this infrequently, no problem. If you do it regularly, like for a living, you really have to make sure you have a fresh air system that you use.

Of course, after you apply primer to the whole car, guess what....? You get to SAND the whole car AGAIN.

I put on about 5 coats of BRIGHT BRAIN IDEA LIGHTNING WHITE paint, and by that night, I had my shiny new painted car in front of my house. (This new paint dries FAST.)

Here's photos without all the little parts back on.


Okay, here it 'tis: The finished "EMMA".

The new dash below was supplied by Prestige Autowoods, San Jose, California to replace the fake wood dash originally supplied by the factory for an exported left hand drive car. It is an extraordinary example of burl walnut, being a single non-split piece going the full width of the dash, extremely rare.

Your Amazing Brain Adventure is a web site all about Tickling Your Amygdala- i.e. turning on the best part of your brain as easy as clicking on a light switch. This is done as easily as imagining a feather inside of your head stimulating a compass, the amygdala. The amygdala is a set of twin organs, a part of your brain that sits right in between the most advance part of your brain- the frontal lobes and pre-frontal cortex- and the most primitive part of your brain- your "reptile brain" and brain stem.  By tickling your amygdala you instantly and directly increase creativity, intelligence, pleasure, and also make possible a spontaneous natural processes known as "paranormal abilities", although such things as telepathy and ESP are really as natural as breathing, or as easy doing simple math in your head. The ability to self stimulate the amygdala by something as simple as thought has been proven in laboratory experiments, such as those conducted at Harvard University research labs, 1999-2009, and can be tracked with modern brain scanning machines such as fMRI and PET... Indeed, thought is faster than light.
