A common problem on the 100 is that many of the windscreen to front shroud seals buckle on the curve toward the outer edges of the screen. The SC Parts windscreen seal shown above, which is supplied curved to match the shroud and does not buckle. The SC Parts part number is SC201 and it cost me 5.17 pounds plus postage.
For those like me that have not used 2 pack paint finishes
before, I found the process far easier than expected. The paint comes off
the spray gun far easier than using acrylic lacquers, though the main thing
to keep in mind is that successive coats do not bond fully with the earlier
coats so you see the layers when sanding back. This also means that you
can not sand through your final coats . The process I used was to block
sand the primer coats with 400 grit (wet), keep in mind that 2 pack partly
relies on mechanical adhesion so you cannot use too fine a paper on the
primer coats. On advise from the professionals my finals coats were "boxed"
with clear coat, i.e. I used 2 full colour top coats block sanded with
800 grit (wet) then 2 further colour coats mixed 50% with clear. I'm told
that this helps minimize the appearance of scratches especially when using
The final coats were block sanded with 1200 (wet) hand sanded with 1500 (wet) then polished by hand. I'm still not totally happy with the finish ( the camera lies) and think I will probably have to power buff the car in the end.
