  3. Thats looking great. Are there any visible pin holes in the primer still or did you manage to get them all stoppered beforehand?

    I wish i had that sort of space to paint all the panels at the same time as the shell. Doing one or two at a time gets boring.

  5. Handy having the oven. You'd be waiting ages for stuff to dry working in your awning.
    How many coats did you spray on and is it celly or 2K? I'm sure you said before but i've got a memory like a goldfish (or a Pacific Regal Blue Tang if you watch Pixar films). :oops:

  6. I epoxyed it 1st more the metal areas and at least 3/4 good coats I put on and I'd say front and rear quarters I knocked off and I'd say 6 on them of high build 2k !! Cost me £100 for the chap to open up ect and all paints so far !! Was there 7-1 spot on !!
