Thought I'd lock myself away in the garage away from all the bog roll hoarders.
Had a busy few days on the car...

Starting to strip the car ready for the colour change.

These are the last pictures of the car in it's factory colour.



No turning back after repairing a few dents.


Building a "Spray Booth" in my garage.




I've decided to paint it in stages to make it a bit easier for me.
First up is the roof.

First bit of colour on the car.


This next part always scares the ****e out of me. Sanding down a new paint job


After a flat and polish




Masking up is a tedious ball ache but time taken doing it properly saves a ****e load of work later on.








Main shell painted




Yours trully


Starting to remove masking






Will start to flat and polish the shell tomorrow after I've repainted the boot brackets (bast4rd cheap masking tape)

more to follow over the next few days.

Hey Tony,
Yeah I use 2K Arcrylic. I find it loads easier than the water based stuff.
Setup wise there's not a lot to it.
Mid range HVLP gun with 1.4mm Nozzle.
50L 2.5hp 9.5cfm compressor. It's a bit on the small side to paint a whole car at once with but as I do it in bits it seems to cope quite easily and I'm getting very good results with it.
For me, spraying is the easy part. It's the wet sanding and the buffing where I f*ck things up.
Had to re do one side completely as i caught it with the buffer. To be honest i could probably have got away with it but i want it to be perfect so it got done again today.

We're more or less on lockdown here so i have plenty of time on my hands.
I'll do a proper write up in the next day or two.
Feel free to fire over any questions. Always happy to help.
