Yeah, video about how it's (NOT) done!  hahaha...

Why would you make that statement? They seem to have done an excellent looking BC/CC job with very basic tools!

There were a few things during the video that caused me to wonder about their methods and processes, but overall, they did a decent job, and with a result that should give the car another 30 to 40 years of life.

They didn’t remove the fenders until late in the process for one. Cleaning up the backside should be the first thing, before repairing and prepping the exterior.

Same for the engine bay, interior, and the underside of the chassis.
 

The very first order of business after stripping the chassis should have been the floor repairs, and other rust mitigation.

Then begin the bodywork and prep for refinish.

I also noticed they didn’t disassemble the struts before repainting them.

They also didn’t show if the gas tank was refurbished.

It's Indonesia! Relatively poor country. Working in flip flops. Using a paint gun that looks 20 years old! Props for how well it turned out. I struggle to get good results and I have 3 times the equipment they have

After all that work they put the old bumpers back on🤐 Gives me the impression that it really was a low budget resto.

Under the conditions they were working in they managed a decent restoration, all be it the car wasn't in that bad a shape to start with.

Average annual income in Indonesia is $837 so labor costs are way low and they make their equipment last.  The shop reminds me of one near where I lived in the Philippines a very long time ago.  They hand hammered Excalibur replicas on the chassis of your choice for very little money.

It also looks like they didn't rebuild the engine or transmission either.

And yes, the end result did look good, considering the shop.

Reminds me of a video I saw of Vietnamese guys squatting in mud, remanufacturing grey market tractors. They were tearing engines, gearcases and hydraulic systems down, freshening them up, bolting them back together, spraying a new layer of paint, crating them up and shipping them to the US.

Haha.. yeah, but that's not the problem.. i got a over 40 years old paintgun and i bet it's better than a lot of those new junk paintguns they sell on ebay..

The finish systems in use today don't spray well through a suction (cup on bottom) type spray gun. The materials are high solids, low solvent, and work optimally in a gravity gun (cup on top).

For sure, the cheap spray guns on eVilBay are junk. A good Devilbiss gun will get the job done, I bought mine at the local auto body paint and supply house. 

I do still use my old Devilbiss suction gun, for ordinary lacquer based primer, and metal etching primer, but haven't sprayed topcoat through it for over 25 years.

They say in the comments, it was not a full resto, they only do bodywork

I agree with you. When they painted those strut housings, brake lines and all, that was when I concluded it was cut rate job.
