Gus,

It is the time it takes though; I canít get motivated in the evenings so it is just one day per weekend at the moment.

I hinted to Nicky the other day by saying ď3 more days on it and it could be rollingĒ, ďEnd of June thenĒ she said!

Cheers Ginge

5 Jun

The kids are away for the weekend at my motherís, as we have a do to go to tonight, so Nicky has been distracting me, to that end I havenít got much done.

Didnít even look into the electrolysis apart from knowing I need a larger tub than I have. I did manage to get the first coat of paint on the front of the chassis, the primer is still grinning through so it will get more orange and etch and prime my front lower wish bones.

I took the advice of Mark and used a flap disc to produce a radius on the bit of my front uprights that the track rod ends attach to, and then re-sprayed them.

I need to get down to Halfrauds with my new trade card and purchase some more paint. I recon on and off only 2hrs on the car today,

Cheers Ginge

Looking good there Ginge. May only be two hours worth but it was a good two hours and that's what counts.

How many cans of paint and primer do you reckon you'll use for the whole chassis and suspension? I'm tempted to go with the cheap option of alkyd paint brushed on.

Alga,

Paint it on, by god, paint it on.

I have started something that I might struggle to finish. My thinking was I like the engineering aspect so much I want to show off as much of the chassis as I can, so I decided to prep and prime the chassis myself then get a pro paint job.

The pro paint job will cost £500, too rich for me (should have done more research).

The orange you see on the front is one can and that needs another coat. I think I will plod on concentrating on the bits you will see more than the bits you canít, it will all be ORANGE though in the same vain as Ronnies RED.

Possibly the most long winded answer in forum history.

Cheers Ginge
