The debate over what colour to do the rear hatch and back panel has had me thinking of all sorts of ideas over the last month or two.
As I said before I don't particularly like the satin black look despite that being the factory finish, too much like an unfinished project to me.
I had serious thoughts of just doing it all body colour but non other than JR swung the decision in favour of at least honouring the OE aspect and doing the back bits black. A guy who rents another unit next to mine gave me some Peugeot metallic basecoat to try and an old sill was done to see what I thought. Painting it all with normal clearcoat rather than a satin finish convinced me it will be the right choice, for me at least.

So as this is a full update this is what I ended up with on Wednesday evening, finishing quite late as it happens due to the 3 stages of painting with the two different colours then needing to clearcoat everything, spray gun needing stripping and cleaning after each stage..

I'll indulge a few shots, quite chuffed at the outcome.
Think the black and normal, shiny clearcoat rather than satin lacquer works for me  Cool

After all the work on the sills and the rear arches they've come out very nicely

Even inside the boot where the repairs were done, plus the window ledge as that's visible so needed to look fresh

Now the paint is on I can relax a bit, been fighting the impending bad weather so happy this stage is done.
Lots of parts are already refurbished ready to be refitted so it shouldn't take forever to rebuild, I've given myself until the end of February as there's a little job on my lads Hillman Imp that needs doing in March so it's ready for the season next year, looks like the Y10 will be able to get out too.  Grin

Thanks Tim, always worry about sending stuff in for the magazine, there's an awful lot of detail I could send in but I try to condense it enough so it doesn't end up like War and Peace! But still ends up feeling a bit too long winded.
Sent off part2 yesterday to Jack which he keeps saying is an OK balance so we'll see.
Apologies to anyone who feels it's raking too much magazine space up. But the little Y10 deserves to get some press time in my humble opinion.

Don't apologise. VL needs member input (nudge nudge)......

Looking great Kevin if it was not for this lockdown I would have come down to see it in the metal.

Yesterday and today I've sanded back the paint to get rid of the dust that my less than ideal spraying conditions unfortunately always ends up with, not to mention the wildlife! Not having a proper airtight spray booth and worse still, doing it in the same place as where the welding and prep is done means issues are inevitable.

Several processes of sanding starting with 1500 grit wet and dry paper followed by 3000 grit discs on a DA sander, which seems odd to use on new paint! Then a series of differing machine polish stages.

Happy with the outcome though.

Doors all done whilst on the stands, bit nervy first time I did them on there but you get to trust they are on securely and won't fall off!

Wings though I did take off my home made spraying stands, they would definitely not put up with the vibrations of the polisher!
