          It's done the old way with a two part paint system. Brooklands Green was not available in a water based paint

            Some pics from the bodyshop this morning. Outer shell has had four coats of paint. See pics below. The driver's side has been rubbed down and when all done the shell will receive another two coats then four coats of lacquer

              Sorry. I should have said passenger's side has been rubbed down.

                      Painting finally finished. Just bonnet and windscreen to fit and side stripes to add. Looking absolutely beautiful. So glad I didn't change the colour. Photographs in the booth don't do it justice.

                        Am truly jealous of the rear of front wing to front edge of door gaps - looks spot-on. Colour looks great too.
                        Looking good...Ö

                          The gaps all round are superb. The boot lid fits better now than it did when it was new. The coachbuilder is a perfectionist.
