The bonnet was in great shape, or so I thought....

With the hinge off and the scab attacked with a knotted wheel a nice hole soon formed...

Bolts fitted into the hinge mount points to make sure it doesn't move, don't want to be covering up the bolt holes!

So I could paint the front wings without laying them down which I didn't want to do so I could paint around the edges etc I made up these simple stands, just some spare angle attached to a brake drum for a base then the little arms at the top are adjustable to suit differing mounting holes so I can use them again in the future.

My favourite is the roof photo.  It really has come out well...   I expect you were as nervous as you were excited to see it in colour and reflected and to see how well you'd done.  Judgement day!!!

The wing stand looks as though it would be unstable but I can't imagine you making anything like that. How far can it tilt before it overbalances?

Only a small step in reality David but a huge psychological hurdle overcome, it really does feel like you're on the home straight when the paint goes on....relity is though there's stilla  huge amount to do!

Repairs have come out well yes, roof amongst them  Wink

It is a lot more stable then it looks Frank, amazingly so really. The brake disc sits flat to the floor and is quite a large diameter one with a lot of heavy mass, takes quite a bit to try and knock it over.
Only issue I found though is my use of angle steel for the stem, when you spray the wing the frame tends to oscillate!  Grin

I have to hand it to you Kev the shell was looking spot on after you'd finished all the repairs & now that you've laid down a few coats of Monza Rosso it looks factory fresh! You must be chuffed  Grin.

Yep, chuffed Rob that's for sure! Sorry for the delay in replying but I have now almost caught up with where I'm at with the car, but I'll elaborate a bit more on here from the magazine articles, make a break from the Christmas talk!

The remaining panels got painted red, a while back now it seems but was really only in October I'd guess..

Hatchback I needed to paint the inside as well as outside so hanging it form the roof seemed the best solution.

So the inside could get painted without any masking lines, along the top inside and out too.
