Rear lights and fuel cap bolted in



I spent a sunny afternoon bolting in the rear lights and fuel filler cap, as they were only placed into position for the photos yesterday.

The under side of the filler cap was a sod to get to, but after resting the car on two old tyres in the middle (so the wheel arches were completely open), I was able to shuffle myself right into each wheel arch and stretch up into the middle to get a spanner onto the bolts.
Many thanks to my mate Conrad who was helping from the top by doing those bolts up - an impossible job to complete on your own!

Solid 2 pack Ford Colorado red paint



The car has now had its coat of solid 2 pack Ford Colorado Red paint, and doesn't it look great?

Can't wait to see it for myself!

Sooooo excited!

2 Pack wet on wet primer




2 Pack Polyester Primer






The car has a coat of 2 pack polyester primer sprayed over it. This is kind of like a high build thick primer, that allows sanding down to leave an even surface. The finish of the filler is as smooth as glass.

Ready for Priming
