Pre-painting preparations

31 Dec

With chassis fabrication complete, we spent a couple of hours yesterday sanding off any high spots and filling any low spots to make the body smooth and tactile, ready for painting. We’re also experimenting with sections of automotive carpet for the vehicle floor areas.

We won’t paint and detail the vehicle until we’ve finalised the construction process, to ensure that we can see the vehicle hard points and joints properly without being obscured by paint. It’s an exercise in delayed gratification though – the solar taxi is going to look fabulous when painted.
