  9. My bumper rubbers are very old n tired, seen this on Ebay, im thinking i can shape and bond onto the bumpers, just putting it out there, but i think itd work a treat, i know they wont be 100% the same size but nice that they could be new and not funked https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rubber-Strip-10mm-Thick-x-5m-Long-Black-General-Purpose-Solid-Neoprene-Rubber/352174485432?hash=item51ff3c2fb8:g:MakAAOSwlPFeQU-2
  10. 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
  11. Yes get the trim on , it will make such a difference when you do
  12. 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 .....
  13. yes lovely standard mk3
  14. What a shame, great you managed to get it , lovely model, spec and color, make it look mint mate
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. beasty in the making , nice
  18. Cheers for replys, if i did a video on fitting the vinyl roof it would have gone wrong , guaranteed Yes mate get the sanding blocks moving, i bought a 9" one really made a difference for the larger panels/repairs. Should be painting the door shuts tomorrow, weather pending, either way ill be doing another day on the Cortina, focused, patient, productive, - just what the doctor ordered
  19. Thank you everyone I'm pleased as punch with the old knacker
  20. Hot weather? painting weather !, had the wings back from Enviro strip £100, strip n etch prime, hes quoted me £150 to do the same to the boot and bonnet, so pretty much cleaned, gravitexed, base coated and clear coated, two days graft ........
  21. No rush Deano, it will be a day to look forward to
