Like the idea of using a bath as a spray booth, handy!


Best get that plumbed back in before your significant other gets home. :P

Looking forward to seeing the results.

Some more dreadful phone pictures..I will take some good ones when they are finished :wink:

Several layers of white later...bit of rubbing down, some correction to runs (not many) etc. Final spray I held the nozzle closer which I seem to remember gave a glossier finish.

Very fine run with 2500/3000 grit then on with the clear coat!

Much top coat applied. Rub down with 3000 then with solvol autosol. Final spray with finish line polish and I have to say...I am rather pleased with the result. New decals to be applied then rebuild. Pictures up soon.
