But it needs time to get them smooth. As I won’t have her finished before the end of this summer I can’t be bothered that much. The painter has promised me that it will be ready before his holiday in mid September, that will do for me for the moment. But I went over to him last Saturday to have a look at the progress so far. Left hand side is completely smooth now (although not quite clear in this picture);
The same can be said about the front, all the “loose” parts, the underside and the interior;
But for me more import was that I checked the colour sample he received from their paint supplier Sikkens. First impression in the bright sunshine was that the colour was way to light. But the more I look at it the more I am convinced it just could be the correct shade. This was more or less confirmed by a visit to an ex-Leyland garage in the area.
