Default Crazy or there's a mint green coupe in there


You might guess crazy but that's ok. I want her back to mint green and decided I wanted to see as much of her in original paint so wet sand away the blue makes a good guide coat

And if they didn't use primer, maybe the didn't prep the original paint by sanding... You might be able to sand down to the original clear coat. Wax, polish, original paint!

Keep on going! 964 windows for the most part just pop out...literally. The only one you might have to cut the seal on is the rear. The door windows don't have to be removed as the frame between the window and paint also just pops out and is held in by metal clips.

Good luck!
