  6. That cardboard mounts never gonna hold up ! Nice work, cant wait to hear that un
  7. If there that bad you can get stick on chrome trim, from Halfords, i had the same issue, the stick on stuff works really well an wont cause rust traps
  8. Yes get the trim on , it will make such a difference when you do
  9. Yes i always preferred my old suction Devlibiss gun, to the gravity ones, once youve tickled it and set it up you can really throw the paint on, i always used to mix the paint to thick, once i added 10-20% thinners the paint would flow lovely, i have got really cheeky before now and sprayed a final coat of nearly all thinners, dangerous but did look like glass, off the gun. My old Mini was the last car i painted .....
  10. yes lovely standard mk3
  11. What a shame, great you managed to get it , lovely model, spec and color, make it look mint mate
  12. NRP Nuneaton are the boys for paint, i use Jawell paints aswell, no date for paint, theres still so much to prep, defiantly this year, and hopefully before the weather turns
  13. Thanks for replys, yes ive done little paint jobs before, and they've gone bad, i cannot stand reactions on paint as you never know if youve got the contamination out until you paint again. I usually paint the cars at home, but in limbo at mo, so a mates going to base coat (Ford copper/brown)and clear coat- he has a body shop, and has quoted me £500!!!!!including supplying the clear coat, so it should look a top job when its done Doing about two to three full days a week on it Tibbs
  14. beasty in the making , nice
