This is awesome! Thank you for your undertaking to describe all that is required for "de-trimming" the door for paint. It's probably the trickiest part of getting the 928 ready for the painter.

This car is on the rougher end of those that I have done complete resprays on in the past. We're embarking on the dawn of a new era in the 928 community, in my opinion. The scope is widening and...

The black stuff isn't supposed to be there. It is probably butyl tape and a quick fix by a body man. The brown/tan stuff is the OE adhesive product. I've never been sure what it was that they used....

I might be as excited as Brad to see the end result of this one. The fact it's a Euro S2 and the way the color has grown on me has left me drooling.
