- As I've already bought a cheap polishing machine and some G10, I will at least try
to remove the brush marks.
- Thanks for the link, but I am going to try the wet & dry brush approach the canal boat painters use.
- That is my problem in a nut shell, I just haven't got time to go around the sand/fill/sand/fill/sand loop often enough.
Having said that, the old etch primer does act as a guide coat, so the bodywork is getting pretty smoother in some places.
( The less said about the other places the better.
- Well it is funny you should say that Geoff...

Another Bonus Session:
My real workload is all over the place at the moment as I am dependant on others before I can make any progress.
So after two hours working from home, it was time to get back outside and push on…
After some sanding down, the boot lid got another coat of the high build primer.
The really good news is that this side is now ready for a coat of BRG!
Then it was back out the front, where I numbered the brackets holding the grille in place.
The brackets were then removed, bagged and the grille came out too.
Then I can to peel back the cockpit cover, so I could get in and drive the car.
( As it was parked too close to the hedge for me to fit in and sand the bonnet nose. )
I must confess, just hearing the engine run lifted my spirits.
So I just left it ticking over for a while and scraped off the front number plate.
Then I decided I should really hose down the driveway before I make any more mess.
But backing the car up, gave me a better view of each side.
( Light grey = Prep started, Dark grey = Still to do and Light brown = Knife putty.)
Overall, that is close enough for a race car that has seen some action.
Note: I will flat down the etch primer before the high build primer goes on, so it will get better.
What is left of the yoga mat protected me from the wet driveway.
Sanded down the front wing on the driver's side.
