Hi Rob,

I was reading your build pages again and, If you still read this forum, I would like to ask you a few more questions please, if that's ok.

1- you painted your car with a roller and I would like to do it too, as your car looks great. Beside filling and sanding preparation work, what kind of primer paint and other preparation you have used before painting the car with the top coat? How many layers of the top coat you have applied? Did you sanded in between the layers?

2 - what kind/type of the paint did you use?

3 - did you have any problems with bubbles using a roller?

4 - I really liked the colour of your wheels before you have painted them white. Which type of paint you have used and which shade of gray it was please?

Thank you and I hope you still enjoy driving your car.

Groetjes from UK.

Hello,

I surely read the forum every week!

I used a undercoat used on poly boats called Epifanes,you can use it with a roller and its filling and easy to sand.
I used 2/3 layers Epifanes and a 1K truckpaint mixed in a new Fiat 500 colour.
I experimented with several expensive rollers and ended with a normal foam roller.
Between the several layers of truckpaint i always sanded with wet 800/1200
paper.
I am still happy with the result,note that i used a mat paint which looks older
and more even.
Very important is to heat the whole tub(with a paintdryer) to avoid enclosed airblisters before you start painting,I found a whole lot and missed some which came out in the sun embarassed:

The first time I painted the wheels with a simple rattlecan in a sort off bronze
from a consstructionmarket,personally I like the old english white wheels!

As you can also read in the posts from Paul L when you are busy painting you will see every scratch and bubble,when you,re driving it everybody likes the result!

Good luck with your build and exuse my poor English

Hello Jerome,

Thank you very much for your reply and there is no reason for the exuses, your English is very good. Glad your still enjoy your car and I really like how it looks.

I can speak a bit of Dutch, so I would say: blijf genieten het rijden in jouw mooie auto en bedankt voor de info.
Groeten, Deni.
