FINALLY I have got a decent finish on the bootlid that I am happy
with! I sprayed it outside, so its not paint problems but contamination
in the garage, either the extractor is too powerful (it is) or the
garage needs a good hose down of the roof and upper walls (probably)
or its a static problem (quite possibly) At least I have ruled out
the actual paint now though.
front is now fully glossed on the inside and the frame is done too.
years of masking got it to this stage!
cage took forever to mask up.
around all the joints and brackets.
finally it was done so I could get the gloss grey on the roof panels,
on all the inner wings, behind all the door edges and down the inside
of the A and B pillars.
will ever see the grey but I wanted every inch of steel covered inside
and out after it was media blasted as I never want to work on rust
on it again.
little bit of a jump here as I have not been keeping you all up to
date. After masking off all the gloss areas in the roof & sides
I moved on to the tubs, rear shelf and rear window frames. Here it
is all primed up waiting for topcoat.
bit of a jump-sorry, the gloss is all laid on and has been masked
up ready for the next stage. I forgot to take photos so you will have
to wait until it is all unmasked at a later date.
window frame is now gloss black and masked off ready for the side
window frames to be done.
