I think of Rich's Creamsicle as the PNW Phoenix. But I remember the old name too. Just glad to see her getting some love again.

After applying the chip guard the satin black paint was shot on the roof.
I think the gloss is just about right. Don't you think?

Proceeded to Satin Black paint the bumpers, grills etc.

Looks great. I like the satin black. I've been using the VHT epoxy - chassis paint rattle cans in satin black. Used on bumpers, targa top, for sail panels, rockers, and front and rear lower valences, as well as the black chassis and suspension parts. It sprays really well when at normal room temperature.

In need of the following items to proceed with resurrection for a 1974 914:

The original had scratches and chips and an uneven color so it had to be redone.
Here is the procedure my buddy did:

Sanded it smooth
Applied sealer primer
Applied chip guard
Painted Satin Black
Clear coated.

In the "As long as I'm in there category" the decision was made to add a through the hood fuel filler.
