Body prep
Assembly stand I also have some structural work that I need to do so I decided it would be best to have a stand that would support the body in the same manner as the bug chassis. I was concerned that if I propped it up on saw horses like the manual calls for it would pre-stress the body in a direction which is different than when on the chassis.
Bradley GTII body on stand I bolted the body to this framework and found a couple of bonuses I hadn't anticipated. I can move it around very easily and tipping it up on it's side to work underneath is a one person job. I will be adding some wheels underneath to make moving even easier.
GTII roof The dark patches are body putty. They layed it on pretty thick to get it to match the doors.
Stripped GTII The car is completely stripped of all sub-assemblies and now I just need to finish removing the old paint and filler to begin repairs.
Front end damage This is the sight of a previous repair attempt. The old paint wasn't even removed from under the body putty. It also appears that there is a layer of surface filler or primer (the red stuff) between the bondo and the fiberglass. Because of this the filler chips off fairly easily.
