Interior Texture

Slowly but surely, I am making progress on my 67 Fastback. I have cleaned the floor pans and primed with red oxide primer. My next step is to prep the interior fiberglass panels and here lies my dilemma. The fiberglass panels have seen their share of wear and tear and they have quite a few deep scratches and rub marks on them. If I clean them up and strip the paint, I will still have more blemishes than I want. If I repair the blemishes, I will be filling in some of the texture on the fiberglass panels. One option that I have considered is to fill in and block sand to remove all texture from the interior of the car including the doors. Has anyone gone this route and what did you think of the outcome. I am not building a concourse vehicle but I do want it to look nice.

I did that (actually the body shop did) because I was in the same boat. I really like it because it was different. (I've had quite a few people actually notice it and commented about it.)

Here's a better idea. Use a fine art brush to put some high-build primer in the flaws. when it's half dry, press a scrounged piece of seat vinyl against it, embossing the grain in the primer. Carefully done, it's almost undectable.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Absolutely!! It's a very old timers technique that works very well, been done for years, but unknown to those who "hire" to do their "restoration" work...which is really just glorified body shops....
