it looks really good mate, are you going to have enough room to spray it there.

i've sprayed a mk1 astra gte many years ago outside and it was a nightmare.
i ended up covering the concrete with water and it stopped all the dust coming up when spraying the lower part of the car, made a massive difference.

Engine bay polished up great and the inner arches look pretty mint aswell,looks like you have got a great shell there Cool


Yeah everyone loves a big pile of new bits it almost becomes a shame to fit them,especially the ones you cant see once fitted Laughing

that looks really good, I love you so clean and shiny.  
did you brush or spray the paint on under the arches and floor?
did you use the exact same paint as the car colour or just some hammerite?

i'm asking as it looks an exact match mate.
when i did a test area on the back of mine with hammerite it was no where near a match.

cheers lads im having trouble with quotes it wont let me type outside the quote box

rich yeah feels good to see it getting some paint at last cant wait to do the rest and start getting it together hopefully wont be long now but depends on the weather


dean mate its just brushed on as wasnt bothered about the finish as its textured anyway from the stone chip i have done it with hammerite i thought it was a close enough match for under the car hope it still close when i have sprayed the rest of it if not i might blow it over with the gun if i have any paint left
