All painted and on show at the local school fun day.

All that is left is to flat and polish the paint then fit all the bright work.
Trims for the sides are ready, just waiting for the window trims and rear light trims to arrive back from the platers

07-15-2010 09:11 AM July 2010 Lacquered Willys
4 coats of lacquer and apart from a few bits of dirt particles it's looking good. Flatting back and final polishing should remove most if not all the dirt particles.
All in all I cannot grumble considering the jobs been done in a wooden shed lined with plastic and with an on hire 12" extractor fan doing the job of keeping the dust down.
Not bad for an electrician whose last full paint job was way back when I was 19 back in 1981 on a 1971 Morris 1000 van!
Come to think of it my old mucker Jack was on hand when that little number received it's fresh coat of Fiat yellow, must be his fault then!!

Spent last night in the booth/shed! laying on the basecoat.
Lacquer tonight that is if I can muster up enough energy. The last fortnights certainly took it out of me.

More pictures of the lacquered panels. Flash on the camera really alters the colour. The true colour is close match to the famous Stone Woods & Cook Willys of the 60's Gasser wars
