Smiley Nothing personal Bobbi!
I was in Farnborough this afternoon. Encountered a '67 plate Golluff on the M3 on the way home, who I'm pretty sure was on a mission to kill someone before teatime. Truly scary to watch as he swerved from lane to lane & back again. Had some serious mental issues I think, but why? He was probably only going home from work to stare at the telly all evening.

Piecing together the jigsaw I provided him with.

Another visit to the garage from Mr BayChimp this afternoon provided the much needed shove to get on & paint this thing. Thanks Bob Smiley
So, a litre of paint later, (9 aerosols) it's now a slightly darker shade of green. I don't think you'd really notice the difference unless you had the original colour to compare it with.
I warmed the garage for an hour or so before I started, turned my 2 little butane heaters off while I sprayed, then put them back on for a couple of hours after the dust had settled.
No obvious runs anywhere, but several "dry" patches. Will these come up again when I go over the whole lot with wet 1500 or 2000 grit paper, or will I need another, slightly heavier "wet" coat?
I'll resist the urge to do anything with this now until the weekend, but need to get more paint mixed anyway for the bulkhead, radiator grille, dashboard &, of course, doors.

Thanks. Like I said, a bit patchy, but I'm not sure if flatting will bring that back or if it needs another coat.
Glad I invested in a mask -look at the colour of the filters before & after!

Sorry I couldn't stay a bit longer, I wouldn't have minded splashing a bit of paint around. Now you have to decide how many coats you are going to put on.
