Slight change of plan and I have now pushed the Sprite round to my lock up to continue the work...It is now in different company....
nice to see you back Phil
....and the rubbing down continues.....
The start of a lot of tedious rubbing down - fortunately I am using my small air powered DA sander this time!
Having had a holiday it is time to get back to the Sprite. I have removed the windscreen and wiper arm spindles, then I found the old roll over bar strut.....
Used is good. I've found increasingly that people like that look. It tells a story. Maybe I'm just trying to justify the rattle can finish on my stuff.
Although the Sprite has "period patina" I really don't think it is right to have the paying public "admiring" my quick job, 13 year old spray painting.......So a local sprayer is going to do a respray if I do the prep work to keep the cost down.
The wing bead shows the sort of problem!
So I have started to strip the Sprite!

I have been cleaning the car and looking at the paintwork...it is distinctly "Used" and so I will have to decide whether to get a patch tidy up or go for a smooth all over and respray......It is a Rover Metallic BRG at present.
