After buying the red GS400 convertible in December I have been spending time (and a signifcant amount of) money tweaking it and bring it back to as close to OEM without a frame off restoration. The car is so nice that not much has to be done to the interior or drive train. When I took the car to my favorite body shop for a "light over spray" we discovered some places that were not duct taped properly in the previous paint job and surface rust had appeared. The more we looked the more we found little things that needed attention and the end result is a complete new paint job with all stainless and emblems removed, fenders removed, etc. We have not found any serious rust or previous body damage. In the end it will be stunning and my pocket book much lighter. I have had this paint shop work on other cars for me and they are perfectionists and carefully check everything. So, the deadline is to get it finished in time to take it to BCA Denver third week of June and have some fun.
