    Well after 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years of sanding, masking and priming I finally got some gloss on today.
    HURRAY!!!
    This has been the longest, most tedious part of the build so far, and that includes grinding down the 30 feet of weld on the rear arches!!

    This thread is now pretty well up to date as of about 2 weeks ago, so progress will be real time from now on.
    Hope anyone new to this build has enjoyed it, and to all who know of it already, hope you enjoyed re-reading about it.

    yay!!!! finally got the cage painting finished!!

    Gotta wrap it up to paint chassis now, but could not resist unmasking some of it just for a quick look

    After getting the centre of the chassis in gloss I dragged the wings out of storage and cleaned up any marks and scratches incurred while put away and then shot a final coat of primer over them.



    24 hours later I flatted them back and laid on the first coat of gloss, mmmm......nice 'n shiny



    Not a bad nights progress, hopefully I can get another coat on tomorrow before going up to the Ace for the Spring riot.

    Wings have had 3 coats on them now, so I wet flatted them back before the final coats for a smoother finish. Before and after shot here; (gloss one before sanding)



    Also got the floor panels out for painting, glad I did as I had not drilled all the bolt holes in this panel when I remade it, oops

    Its all done now and all the ally is sanded down prior to the epoxy primer going on.



    Slow progress while painting!
