well i managed to get my respray finished today but my gun decided to play up and spray out some big blobs of paint so its still goin to need flatting and polishing but even the pros have to do that most of the time

and this was painted yourself outside ?
i take my hat off to you mate, that is a perfect job especially in that space where you had it sat mate.
my last job i was a painter spraying tractors and tractor equipment in a proper spray booth and the finish was no better than this.

Top job given the facilities and I'd be happy if I could achieve the same if I ever needed to respray a car at home :-) Seeing the pictures of the bare painted 'shell reminds me of my car when I first bought it, makes me kinda miss having a 'blank canvas' as mine's moved on so much since.

That's a great job mate,takes a lot of balls to have a go yourself and it looks to have come out great in the pics.

Now to the fun part of bolting it all back together,dont think it will be long until this ones back on the road Cool

cheers mate its still got very slight orange peel and the odd very minor imperfection if you look really close but given the circumstances it was done in im happy with it another flat and polish and it would prob look perfect cant wait till its back together and i can drive it it is a good feeling to see it coming back together hopefully be able to hit some of the shows next year in it

rob mate, i know i've said this already but i've seen where your uno was parked and there wasn't much room for spraying but you have done a bloody good job of that.

did your neighbours mind you doing it there?
