Painted fiberglass body panels
« on: November 27, 2021, 12:14:41 PM »
I'm media blasting the front bumper brackets on a 68 Shelby. In doing so I  unearthed red paint under the black and  some of it wasn't covered(RED car). Is this just a case of a sloppy repaint of the car or were those Shelby bumper brackets mounted and then the parts painted on the car creating overspray on the brackets. I'm betting a sloppy re-paint. Gary.

The '68 Shelby fiberglass was already painted when installed.

Just a re-paint in your case where comprehensiveness was not an objective.
