Impressive! Love to see so much TLC going in to a buggy :)

Yes TLC, imagination and the 'wow' factor.

Make sure you park in large car parks where those of us with more modest buggys can loiter in the shady corners !

Loks great, thinking you will need some of the clear paint protection film applied to the tub to stop paint damage by the hard to as it will move and flex.

agree with keith... An even "thin" coat of laquer. If you do this check first that the laquer is compatible with the paint type you have used. Don`t overdo the laquer coating.. it has a tendency to develop a yellow hue.. (waiting for the comments on this ha ha)  ;-)up ;-)up

Spaul I meant the sort of clear wrap anti chip protection that comes in a sheet that you cut to fit, they do model specific cut to shape kits for mgb's porsches and alike also bumper protection ones for modern estates.

So not been able to do anythin for some time, work - weather and followed by attempted breakin of me garage meant compleat lockdown till new door and window had been put in, (nothin taken just damage to door and window)  >:(  i'v finally got back to cutting the laqure back and polishing up, 5hrs at it today on the bonnet and from 2 foot away its perfect look realy close and there is still some minor orang peel and a few paper scratches that the pads didnt quite cut out, not sure wether to leave it as is now, i was never gonna achieve perfection in my eyes (first time ive used metal flake on such a large scale)

definatly got the bling factor

and i wanted a good bit of depth in the paint might have gone a bit ott though  ;D

Rich.

Looks amazing.

Don't touch it anymore as from experience you will do something that suddenly makes it worse and you will think 'wish I had left it as it was'  ;D

This from Chad is a "real pearl". In about 48 years of painting - refinishing cars on an amateur basis this is where I have chewed myself to bits probably more times than I have had hot dinners  ;D ;D
