Spent a day on it Saturday.

The tops of the wings needed a skim to make level with the

scuttle.Also got the door gap sorted on the drivers side.

Blocked down the polyester and adjusted a couple of bits here and there.

Polyestered the car and bonnet and boot and inside the boot area.

That is looking so straight, Paul. I thought for a moment you were going to leave the polyester finish as the authentic orange peel Ford finish!

 

I've just received a load of photos of a Californian Mk 1 that's never been re-painted, never been undersealed and with no rust. The paint in the engine bay is full of runs and orange peel, and the underside is a little white overspray but mainly red primer, especially the middle of the car between the chassis rails!

 

How authentic will you go??!!

 

When you come to spray the green stripe remember to fit the rear lights and mask them off before painting....Check out Colin's A Frame car(also not been re-painted) in the container if you don't believe!

 

Keep up the great work.

 

Mark
