Well here’s a suggestion.
Painting is one of the things that we don’t have any real ‘how to go about it’ and it’s one that most members would probably like to have a go at, I know I would with all the spare car body bits I have lying around.
We have seen what MX6Steve has achieved on his front garden and now Ritchie tells us he has experience in painting.
If the two of you (and any others for that matter, as long as you know what you are talking about) could come up with a ‘how to have a go’ post, i.e. how to prep the body, what to use (wet and dry/ sand paper grades), what to look out for (body imperfections etc), how many times to rub down, what equipment (considering you can buy compressors for Ł60ish nowadays), can it be done with cans?, what will the finish first look like, how do you get that ‘showroom’ shine, can you get a ‘showroom’ shine? Etc, I’m sure we would all find it of interest.
Just a suggestion
