A few peeps have queried the " let the rain do it's magic"  :o As some of you know I spent my business life designing and manufacturing replica sports cars - using GRP bodies.

We found - purely by accident  ::) - that bodies that had been left out in the elements prior to assembly and paint didn't require etch priming. My theory - that the "acid rain" did the etching for you ! The rain [ plentiful in the UK ] also cleaned off any residue of the sanding keyed gel coat. Does it work ? Certainly with Cellulose [ old fashioned me ].

That said - it hasn't rained since I left the "tank" outside !! ;D

It's actually the UV-light, which breaks open the surface of the gel-coat. (Unless it's covered in UV-resistant gel-coat.)

I know of a boat- and aerospace-parts manufacturer overhere, who has got the biggest "tanning-booth" in Austria, aka. massive UV-lights in his painting cabinet, as reducing the amount of primer you need, means saving weight, which is always welcome on aircraft.

Thanx for the headsup Greg .... seemed to work leaving them out to "age".

CC - I did the whole range of 356s - from the Speedster up to the T6 Roadster. The T6 is still available via my German pal who took over all my moulds, jigs, etc. when I retired. My 550 Spyder was based on a 550A, with multi-tubular frame rather than a "couple of drainpipes" ladder chassis [ 550 ]. I also designed the unique [ to the repro indutry ] a "California" SCCA competition version. The good old days eh ? 8)

Cool! I wonder if I've seen the California car around the vintage circles? I haven't been out much, but my boss just bought a March Formula Ford and I bet i'll find myself behind the wheel of it sooner or later.
Sav0r the adventure.

Very very cool!!!   I love these cars.  Back in the early 80's, I helped my Dad built a replica 59' Speedster on a modified superbeetle chassis.  He still has it.   He had Claudes' Buggys build him and engine and a local place build him a short throw transmission for it.  It's been sitting awhile now but one of these days it'll get resurrected.

My old California [ #55 ] has changed hands a few times, but is still doing the rounds. I made 25 California variants in total. One with a turbo Scooby lump - quick ? Hell yea.
