  9. Poptop roof rack all done.Due to hairline cracks all over the roof he initially painted it with Reface to bond and fill all the imperfections than a high build plaserat primer before flatting and apply topcoat .

  10. Dashtop removed and will be bare metalled and then painted.Workshop is currently full of Bays but look carefully you can see a rare split oval Beetle quietly waiting in the shadows. 1521863535651-786549209.jpg 1521863571059-1884798473.jpg

  13. Outside is all ready for primer tomorrow then I finish sanding all the inside on Saturday then this will also be primed and eventually top coat. I am still doing all the grunt work in the evenings and saturdays and to be honest I am completely knackered but the sprayer is still keen to get the best results so I will just go with things and I am sure it will all be worth it !
