Great photos David, glad to note the T cut is available, but could not see where you might use it !!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the primer tips, they are to be squirrelled away.

ooooooooo..... David, thanks for the photos but I have to admit that they gave me a nasty shudder of deja vu dumping me back 6 months to when we started the Fanalone rebuild and reliving the agony we went through to get to the finish line. Would I do it again? Probably not but hey! never say never!

However, I'm sure that you will succeed and Jonathan joins me in wishing you well. Enjoy!

T-Cut : I was hoping that photo showed the "before" and "after".   The green hue in early photos - without looking its probably the "for sale" thread - is oxidised lacquer.  In areas where the lacquer is missing the paint looked a lot more blue.  Having t-cut the lacquer in areas where its good (very much a relative term here...) it even shines and reflects.  Last night I took some trick photos in the flattering last light at shallow angles to maximise that.   

The wings are a definite improvement and the car simply feels better sliding the cover on and off over smooth paint.  I've been pouring on the AutoGlym as well.  On the bonnet the only way to know it is better is to look at a "before" photo and the improvement can really only be shifting dirt.   For sure it often feels like an exercise in futility cutting and polishing paint that will come off - there's an argument to put that time into stripping - but more than likely it will remain a "static exhibit" for some time so the better it looks and the more the imagination has to grab hold of the better. 

As to "if I knew then what I know now I'd never have started" that's very much my problem.  There's no self deception here.  Its a rotter and even the good ones have been nightmares.  I have to keep reminding myself how so often people then add "but I'm glad I did it anyway". As much as anything I enjoy spending time with it.  Before I bought it I kept wanting to go back for another look and that hasn't worn off.

Little and often has been the key so far.  Wire brushing too much only to see it go orange was a mistake.  Painting in the dark and rushing into the foot wells was a mistake.  Doing a small area so I can see the difference helps with the feeling of futility moving it from appalling to merely bad.  When the next wave of visitors come it will be "I know its bad but you should have seen it before".

A similar colour I saw and liked at Brands Hatch on an Aston DB4 is "Caribbean pearl".  It was also used on (at least one) Aston Zagato.

http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/tips_techniques/f/8/t/84491.aspx?sort=DESC

The conclusion there was "PPG code #16826"

Doing the search now I see they use it on the current one:

A question via email - can I hear the IPod?   Those ear defenders are a much better spec than normal and as such I can listen to speech, radio 4 or podcasts, with whatever noise be than an angle grinder or circular saw or pressure washer.  I mentioned them before when Andy Tait was settling down to several days of floor cleaning.

http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2928.60

Doing all that wire brushing my tip is the best ear defenders you can find (these are the ones I got) and an IPod.  I found regular defenders only let me listen to music (and I'd still go crazy...) while with these I can listen to speech and there's the world of fantastic podcasts out there.   They've almost made that kind of chore a pleasure, for sure I want to keep going until whatever I'm listening to has ended rather than being desperate to quit for ANOTHER cuppa.

Following that link they no longer seem to stock them.  Amazon do:

I have to say that you are doing a splendid job David. It is all to easy in the heat of optimisim with a new project to strip it down to the last atom almost and then look in dismay at the vast collection of bits. I think getting the car clean and in a state where it will not get any worse is they way to go. I would also like to ask a favour..... Could you photograph the pull strap on the passenger door for me? My Sport is missing the original strap although I do have the end fittings and I would like to refit it to the car. Thanks and again, well done.

The subject of an artcle in the current VL I see. A good approach for tempting some more LMC members to join the forum which has been provided for them. I do still like the idea of 'small ads' and 'aromatic bundles of notes' however. Richard

Been away a week or so.  Will get that photo. 

Article was supposed to have photos with it but Jack printed before I pulled my finger out.  Seeing it today I was better pleased with it as a teaser.  Part II in progress.

Hi David, I'm glad there are people like you around willing to save such beautiful cars. What is the grey paint you have used on the floor? Does it have rust killing properties?

Stanley,

You need to scroll back to page 4 and "Reply #58 on: 25 July, 2013" for the run down on paint I used and paint I might have used and paint I might use next time.  A snippet:

The primer:

http://dulux.trade-decorating.co.uk/products/info/dulux_trade_metalshield_quick_drying_metal_primer.jsp

The first time I used it was on aluminium and it worked a treat.  The data sheet says its zinc phosphate in acrylic so it should do the electrolytic thing to prevent rust.  I applied it over two coats of Fertan rust converter.
