Since my last instalment I have been busy applying the finish paint to the underside of the body. The underneath of the fenders were treated with a coat of stone guard before colour and 3 coats of lacquer. The smoothed areas of the floor were, after priming, given colour then 3 coats of lacquer. Engine bay area including the inner fenders were primed coloured as before then given 5 coats of lacquer.
Finally colour sanding and polishing of the engine bay area finished the job off. The body is now ready for the chassis to be refitted.
You will notice the finished paint on the inner fenders stops before the outer wing joint. This is due to several reasons but as I will be leaving the finished paint work on the body to Richard [paint and body man] the join needed to be somewhere easy to blend in, also if there was to be a problem I could use bonnet rest tape to hide the joint

One week later and Richard has done an excellent job with the remaining panels that needed attention.
