ha i imported my red rev 2 gts from Japan 10 years ago and it's due a respray. i've t-cut and waxed and done a lot of the mechanical work myself (heavy stuff to the pros) but it has lacquer peeling here and there and wings and bonnet are fading beyond what a buff can sort out.
i'm looking into getting storage and stripping and sanding it and maybe get it to primer. if you do this you should save at least half your labour bills. you'd want to put an month aside it's a lot of work to do right tho!
and dont cheap out on the paint or lacquer or you'll be doing it again in a couple of years!
i've been looking at this colour, C7P Lightening Red:
10 litres from mr. T would not be cheap!
my last buff and wax:
lasted about a month and then back to a lovely shade of pink :kiss:
