To bring the subject up to speed, the mothers decided after saying shes not moving for a while to tell me that shes sold the house and is moving out on friday, so i've had to put in some solid hours to try and get the beemer finished asap.
I've done most of the work on it but figured that to get the body perfectly prepped for paint it would take weeks, so considering i havent got weeks to prep it never mind spray, i've had to resort to a quick paint job as a temporary measure.
Anyways, i've gone for matt black, just for something different, but mostly cos its cheap and easy to do, and it will help take the eye off the various areas that aren't perfect until I have time to get the finish done to a higher standard.
I got to thinking that the matt black is all a bit bland and needed something to break it up slightly, and I've had a blast and done this. bear in mind the matt paint is a bit darker in person, the flash has made the gloss part seem more constrasting than it is..
opinions good or bad as if its just me being daft and it looks crap i have time to undo it, so to speak... (ignore the dust also, 'tis filler dust)
Before (ish, before the matt stage)
