Looks great! I would've liked to have had my Uno body coloured underneath (or at least a red of some sort) but alas the floorpan had already been covered with a thick black underseal when I got the car :-(

Did you have much cleaning off of gunk/dirt or rust treatment to do before applying the Hammerite?

cheers mate rust no i was quite lucky only a few spots here and there but to start of with i had to spray it all over with degreaser and gave it a good wash with me jet wash twice where it looked like it had been leaking oil for years probably why the floor was free from rust and the arches looked like they had never been cleaned was about a inch thick with mud then wiped it all over with panel wipe to remove any slight residue
