UPDATE:-

Tub and body panels have been sandblasted, some of the body panels have been sprayed with a primer just to prevent the sandblasted surface from rusting as all the rust removal work starts as a matter of priority.









These are the doors that will be cut into half doors


















The roof gutter is going on;-







And this one is just for THEO  ;D


The old one is on the top the new one the bottom

Nice Keith,

Hope that PB is keeping a detailed photographic record of the gutter replacement. How did the old one come off?

PB brought round a panel painted with two shades of MATT GUNMETAL SILVER - light and lighter

I was not happy with either, as they were both too light, so its back to the mixing chamber
He will now mix another darker batch for approval.

The final finish we have chosen is;  standard base gloss Gunmetal Silver with a matt clear coat - it looked really great.

The panel with the matted base coat had a very course surface and would be a SOB to keep clean and to eliminate scratches. Rejected
