Looking good Al. And yes, you will have to find another name! Keep up the good work,at least it's not the same colour as your bus (or is that where the paint came from?) Laughing

sadly the second and third coats went pear-shaped and the paint just didn't stick in some places. the only course left was to take it all off again and rusty currently is wearing a coat of primer filler on the roof. the paint we'd used was labelled as poly-eurethane (not sure if i spelt that right!) and we bought it at the same time as the body colour cellulose. the paint shop said it would go on ok, but it didn't! ray has found some old english white and we'll try that next, so rusty may have a white roof instead of dark green! pics will follow....

Did you wipe the surface down with a damp rag soaked in thinners after the final rub down to remove dust and grease and let it dry before the spray ? (just a thought)

Rusty sees some paint!

Post  Big_Al_Smith on Wed Sep 01, 2010 7:09 pm

A couple of nice days weather-wise have seen Ray and i plaster a little paint on some parts of Rusty - lots of primer filler, rubbing down and the roof, bonnet and doors have now seen topcoat. Fingers crossed if the weather stays good next time i'm off work we'll have the whole car done. About bloody time i hear you all say..... Laughing

Really tidy! Finish looks great for DIY, I wish I had the patience and skill, I could have saved a fortune!

So when is the target completion date?
