Hi, after what seems like an eternity filling and sanding I was happy with the finish ( the rear door was bad ,I had to do a lot of metal work to straighten the skin) , then it was time to splash some paint on which was today’s job,
Today’s little tinkering was , give the doors and console a flick over with 320 grade flour paper, then onto top coats,
And I can only see one run on the side of the console,
and I have a small amount of mixed paint left for any touch ups, the paint work in general isn’t the best but for a driver and the odd show I can’t complain, may be after a cut and polish it should come up better, and that is the last of the painting done bar any chips or scratches , cheers for now
Now that all the painting is done,I could finally get on with making the second half of the headlining, so yesterday I covered the roof with cardboard and packing tape then covered up the rest of the car then today I laid down 3 layers of fibreglass and resin and it’s now curing till tomorrow morning then it will be removed and all tape and cardboard discarded.
