Loads done yesterday and today :) going back down later to do more :)

Sprayed

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I went for a matte finish :) but when my bro sprayed it an I took a picture the paint had sparkly flake in it which he found strange as its 2pak that uses no laquer, he had a massive argument telling me how much better it will look laquered so he won :) here she is shiny

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Turned out unreal :) the shine an difference in the sunlight is unreal :)
Satin blak roof an arches nxt week an reprint the wheels and she done
Off to do the brakes an windows now :) updates to follow
