Back tracking a little I also got the radiator shroud in primer last week and went for a little blast along the Ballamoar straight for the cameras

Decided to just get on with it and paint the Willys myself with help form my old pal Jack. A trip over on his Triumph for a long weekend on the Isle of Man was enough to encourage him over. The task in store wasn't quite what he/we had expected.
The plan to completely paint the car over the four days was a little optimistic. We did however get the doors, bonnet and boot lid in basecoat.
A cracking job done even though we say so ourselves.

The last major surface in need of a good smoothing is the underside of the bonnet [hood]. Lots of reversed curves and recesses make the task interesting to say the least.
The extra boxing at the top adds more rigidity and serves as a cover for the 2 catches.

Radiator shroud is the final piece in need of smoothing.
