    hi, not seen you about for a while.
    just like to ask some advice...
    i've got scratches in my paintwork, but most disappear when the car is wet... i assume this means they're just in the clearcoat.
    is there any way for me to sort these with an airbrush or similar, or is it a pro job to do?
    cheers.

    Hello,
    The car sold for 1300 to a passer by who phoned up to look around it. Thought I'd let you know so you can keep up your tally.
    All the best,
    Karl

    I understand you don't do the painting job anymore. Shame as has been said but oh well. Do you know anyone else on here who does though?

As title really,popped in to drag up an old example of a rusty puma and realised I miss the fun of doing the blog.
I know I get messages asking why I don't anymore.
The truth is I felt i'd done enough as an example and that more was just showing off or biggin myself up (in yoof speak )
With a bit of care and effort a good job can be done,with careful choice of materials a good job with less cost can be done .... it is what it is

When i'm back to work I may revive...

I got to do a low budget repaint on a very battered and used Mini for a sales dept.
Shame I didn't get before pics,but like most things Rover related and old in a workshop it didnt get much attention,poor thing and,it's auto .Had been "boyed" about with a fake cooper lookalikey sticker set etc,but on the boot it had a huge Rover badge,on checks is registered as one of the "Rover" minis.

Had a trader bring an Abingdon MGF in for a wheel refurb.I believe 150 were made,wonder how manys left?

Especially for those missing blogs.
The panels were prepped and primed and prepped for colour.

I started by masking the backs of doors/panels that matter etc and giving the panels a good degrease inside and out,can't be too careful.
I have to admit,theres always the element of doubt before jobs like this unknown expensive paint,one chance etc etc,so we begin.



I set the prepared panels up.It was nice to do something different and play with Aurora,on...
