Madnees Pure and Simple! I hope to get my baby painted soon. But have to sell my 914 Chalon first. To pay for the paint that I want. The law would decsend upon me if I even lifted my praint gun for primer?

That's a super nice job there. Those pics almost make it look easy. Lots of work must have gone into that.

Sorry! Had to come back and look again. You paint in a gazebo is better than some of the so called high dollar ones I have seen. CHEERS!

just came to my mind: are you gonna use those led turn signals with the stock bug flasher relay? I don't think it's gonna work as it's supposed to.

Thanks all for kind remarks and support i am building this on a tight budget at the moment but have most bits to finish
i do have a scat interior to go in but i think i may change for something else

in total the paint job cost me about £250 including spray booth "Gazebo " which worked really well i did have a bit of help from my good friend Paul painting it well he did the roof and mixed the paint i did the rest as he is taller than me

I will update with pics when more progress is made
thanks Garry
