    Thanks Oldwoman
    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....

    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.
