Hi all.
Been a while since I've posted, I've slowly been preparing my '82 turbo for its repaint.
After many, many hours of chemical stripping right back to bare metal on the entire external shell, not so much as a pin prick of paint remained... despite stripping off numerous coats and worrying what lay beneath, I was amazed at how good it was, clearly no accident damage, I can only assume it was all remedial paintwork over the years.

She is now a very unattactive shade of olive green primer! But ready to turn silver again.

What I'm looking for is a decent reference as to how the front end stone chip was applied - namely how far up the front wing it came. I believe I am right in saying the whole front slotted valance was stone chipped and this was carried on to the lower front of the wings, on some references it stops with a horizontal masked line where the valance seam ends - to the wheel well, on others it ends higher (mid bumber height) and on some it is even blended into the wing - no masking line. My own had been painted many time in this area over the years so I can't trust what went before. It's been a long journey getting to this stage and I am keen to ensure these details are correct.

If anyone has reliable reference I would be grateful.

Thanks Rob

Kozzy is the man for original references for this. Ping him a PM.

You know your membership has lapsed?

If it is ready, it would be lovely to see the car at turbo40!

Top pic is more like it than bottom which is too high up the wing

Looked at a few pics and I believe it should be horizontal off the top of the valance. My painter dropped it down at an angle as for him it should follow the body line of the wing going from near vertical and starting to tuck under. So standing near the car you can’t see the line from smooth paint to stone chip. There’s a natural line circa 30deg angle from the top of valance to low corner. Hard to explain and tried to take a pic but it’s too dark.

Here’s mine, which isn’t stock, just following the body line

Here’s Pete’s Martini which I believe to be original paint and it’s horizontal

Yes, just been to to check mine, Pete's is correct
The Schutze line is horizontal coming off the vertical valance seam where it intersects with the bumper

It should follow the top of the black sill line forward until it meets the valance?

Yes that's a better way of putting it!

I like how it was done on mine. The ‘join’ is hidden under the body curve. The higher it is, the more obvious it is.
