Looking good and I think the colour's going to look absolutely stunning once it's flatted and polished.

Mine is likely to be only a few shades away from yours as I'm pretty settled on RAL 3032 pearl ruby red. I could be swayed once I've seen yours all polished though...

Nice colour! It looks a lot like mine from the pics, but then again i know how different it can look in real life.
Having fun sanding around the two humps?

Just looked at the pic's again: did you practice on your garage door first to make sure you liked the colour?

Is the paint lifting from the primer or is the primer coming off too?

It's a shame that it has pulled up. But, better mow than when the job is complete. Best wishes. John
