This was my first look at the car all
in one colour. The top coat has now been applied with both front and
rear wings being resprayed as well as the front valance. There is
still the satin black to add to the sills and to the bumpers and lip
spoiler. These shots are taken of the car with the fresh paint on.
No buffing or cutting has been done at this point.
Here you can see that the replacement
wheel arches now look part of the car.
The lower part of the n/side front wing
had to be extensively repaired.
Shot from a distance. The paint match
looks pretty good though the door stands out somewhat. Once all the
paintwork is buffed and cleaned then hopefully it will blend in
well. These sills had had side skirts fitted, so the holes had to be
plated and stone-chip paint was added, you can just about make out
the difference in texture. The sills will be sprayed in satin black.
Both front wings and front valence were
resprayed. The front of the wing where it joins to the valence was
rotten and was plated.
Nicely blended in lower wheel arch
repair sections. You can also see that the back panel between the
lights is now correct and in black. The car came with a colour coded
rear panel in red.
