Sorry for the lack of updates, i do minor updates on my facebook page, had a few mistakes along the way, mostly silly things like forgetting to put hardener in the clear coat etc. But ,aking some good progress now.....at last.

Starting to get some colour down :) its only the underside of the bonnet, but a successful step for a diy novis paint sprayer

Luckily only the rear spoiler so it didnt take too long to sort out, could have done without it though, but i guess its a learning curve. I wont forget to add hardener ever again :doh:

Managed to half spray the front bumper yesterday, but rain stopped play.......all i need is a few days of sunshine and no rain and progress could be made. Summer here has been terrible with hardly any hot sunny days.....which is what i really need when spraying.

Glad you caught that quick. I've seen some guys spray the whole car and do that. Want to talk about crawling into a hole and dying!

I can imagine....its horrible to remove as it never sets, you cant sand it off, paint stripper is a nightmare as it can eat through the plastic aswell, makes me wish i had a media blaster. Hopefully its not something i will do again.

Managed to get the front bumper sprayed, not perfect but it will be soon, a couple of runs and some dust but easily sorted with a bit of wet n dry.

Starting to put things back together now. the bodywork needs a bit of flat polishing to get it perfect like a mirror, i have done the roof and it has come up amazing, well pleased.
