The project has been on hold for a few weeks whilst I rewire the garage, and add some lights smile.gif





Back to spraying again tomorrow.

YOUR MAKING great progress. as long as you have a goal time in mind you will get it finished. a member who had the curren front end and was planning to do the awd turbo conversion didn't have a goal time for when he'd complete it and several years passed more than 4 im sure) and never finished

Sorry for the lack of updates, i do minor updates on my facebook page, had a few mistakes along the way, mostly silly things like forgetting to put hardener in the clear coat etc. But ,aking some good progress now.....at last.

Starting to get some colour down smile.gif its only the underside of the bonnet, but a successful step for a diy novis paint sprayer



And the Toms front lip done



And getting thebrear crash bar refurbished

Man that is an awesome color! Can't wait to see more updates, regardless how slow it is. Sometimes that's just how it goes!

That is an interesting colour, kind of blueish-grey looking. I like it.

Now it looks more greenish-grey. I've seen that color before, think it was on a TVR.

Its a blue grey with a slight metalic in it, the colour tends to reflect whats aroind it slightly, on sunny clear days it looks very blue, on dull days it looks almost battleship grey, it probably looks green as its reflecting the grass a bit.

Niether can i, although i must admit i will be a bit lost when there is no more painting to do as pretty much everything to this point over the past four years has been prep for painting.

Starting to put things back together now. the bodywork needs a bit of flat polishing to get it perfect like a mirror, i have done the roof and it has come up amazing, well pleased.
