Did you use the original Saturn red or is it just a generic red?

It was a single stage Summit Racing Gloss, Flame Red.
I have never sprayed base clear coat so I just bought this paint it has a hardener with UV protection.
Since it was a different color we had to paint the door jams.

Thanks.

My arms are sore today.

The color sanding process was this.
I worked on one part like fender at a time. I taped off adjacent edges or the hood worked one half and tapped center line.
Wet sand with 1200 clean sand again 1200 clean spot sand with 1200.
Wet sand with 1500 clean spot sand 1500.
Sand 2000 clean
Buff with wool wheel Meguiar's 105.
Clean spot buff with Wool pad Meguiar's 105.
Clean foam pad Meguiar's 105.
Clean the foam pad use Meguiar's Mirror Glaze 82 Professional Swirl Free Polish
Clean then use the finish foam pad with Meguiar's G19216 Ultimate Polish clean then done move on.

I started out with Summit Racing compound but that did not work near as well as the above procedure.

I canít find the driverís door chrome trim at the top.
When we took it off we put a small kick in it now it will not stay on.
I checked junk yards here and two adjacent states and I can find this trim piece.
Does anyone have one they are willing to sell to me?

Looks to officially be considered a part of the SC outer window sealing strip assembly for the left door. Checking the JY pix some 96 SCx cars have the chrome strip and some do not. There is no indication tat it was a dealer installed option either.

I was at the junkyard eariler and there was a SC1 that had the chrome strip under the window. It looks like part of it was peeling off though. Maybe the chrome was just some kind of sticker that went over the normal black trim?

Default Re: 96 SC2 bringing it back to life (slowly)

I had a few cars where the strip was chrome under black rubber/plastic.
Weird. The black rubber/plastic coating wore away, exposing the chrome.

Most older pics of SC2s that I recall show that as black trim.

For example:

http://www.skoutr.com/images/saturnsc2/P6100009.JPG

I do see a few where it looks like chrome on that lower piece, but that is the only chrome piece on the entire car.

For what its worth, I didn't think that piece looked right in your photos. My intuition thought it would be better off black. I love how this car has turned out and I'm somewhat envious.

Those are hard to find and they are equally persnickety when being removed and installed.

Removal tends to bend the rear part upwards, and they are hard to straighten once bent. On my current DD, the PO had driven a screw through it and into the door frame to keep it from bending upward, probably because it was removed and bent during removal. The last time I got one from a junkyard I cracked the door panel of the donor car next to the bottom rear corner of the window, so be careful for that. When you take the mirror off, you can push it rearwards from the front instead of prying it up.

The next time I install one, I'm greasing it up so it slides on easier.
Prior to install, soak the mouse fur with silicone spray soaked into a cotton ball, the cotton ball will prevent spray from getting everywhere, and the silicone will help the window slide.

They are a black semi-gloss finish that peels off with age, and the chrome is underneath. The only thing that I've thought of that is closest to that finish is plasti-dip spray, but I' haven't tried it.

If you order one of these somewhere, make sure they mount it on a piece of wood before boxing, otherwise it will get bent while in transit.

I looked on the ends and it does look like it had black over it at one time. Strange it is chrome under it.
I do not know where I am going to find the piece. There are no gen 1 SC2 in the junk yards around me.
This weekend I might try to fix the bend in it maybe that will keep it on.

I changed oil in this car over the weekend and my son has put a little over 7K miles on it since the motor rebuild.

Mark, I found one in the local yard and pulled it for you. I believe you needed the driver side, as that is all the car there had also. It will need paint or the chrome needs to be slightly polished. I removed it as a unit, so the chrome is not bent.
