Time for an Update guys and possibly gals.
Colour Correction Time.
Unfortunately for IT people the lock down means even more work than usual so I've been a bit too busy to mess with the car for a while.
Of the 8 red bits I'd already painted I chose the best of them to set the base colour for the car.
3 pieces needed colour adjustment after the body was painted as a result.

Pics Here:

Pic 1 is prep and I decided to get rid of all the ear holes to start clean on fastening them when finished.
2 and 3 are the Baslac Silver going down. About 3 coats.
4 Is as small bit of masking to lay the interior black coat. Note: No point in painting where the carpet will cover it.
5 is what happens when a dumb arse doesn't close the gun cover well enough and puts a black drip on the car.
This colour is a pig for spot repairs.
I had to blend the entire rear panel to get it even.
6 and 7 are the body in final base colour.
As my camera doesn't seem the get this colour right, 8 is an attempt to correct the image at lest on my phone screen. Probably different on your monitor.
9, 10 and 11 are all the other bits now colour corrected to the base body colour.

Not a fun job. This might be the last time I do a blended candy.
So if the weather holds for another couple of weekends I'll get the top coat 2K clear down on all of these.

Been a while since I've done a post so here's the little that has been started recently.
Brakes are finally done. Pic 1 shows my brand new front calipers care of Mike Motors.
Pic 2 are some of the left overs after everything went back together.
(there's always left overs - isn't always a bad thing.)

Anyway now the chassis has left the shed, the body can come back in for final paint prep.
After sitting in the sun for almost 2 months at around 40 degrees some new cracks opened up.
So all in all its a good thing to let it bake.
I'd rather find them now than when its in final paint.

So more dremil and fibre glass fairing and more sanding.
The rest of the pics are the body now ready for final undercoat.
I hope to get the body painted in about 2 weeks.
Then comes any colour correction coats needed as all the small bits where painted separately and I was only guessing at the density I wanted.
Difficult until I've got the body done. Not expecting much though.
