    Thought I'd share a couple of pictures of what I'm up to today (whilst I'm waiting on the base coat drying):

    made pretty good progress today - got the first couple of coats of colour on:

















    Will let it dry overnight and the plan for tomorrow is:

    (1) flatten back any high spots/imperfections and then give them their final coat of colour

    (2) paint mirror bases

    (3) paint satin black gill inlay

    (4) lacquer gills and mirrors

    (5) finish off with rubbing compound

    With any luck I might have these finished and fitted by Sunday night!

    So are you painting new bits or just parts already on your motor?
