I made both of my kick panels with 0.8mm sheet steel, drilled all holes and slots needed and got them powder coated black, then fitted the plastic service book holder on the passenger side one. Looks great.

Got a bit of a family problem at this time.

Looks like the garage will have to be turned into a room.

so manta will have to be sold when the paint is done 

The Bandit (which l have had for 16 years) has now been sold ,gutted

Hi Wayne,

I'm truly sorry to hear this. Family must always come first though, above absolutely everything.

Fingers crossed, things work themselves out for you soon and you can find a way to keep the car you searched so long for.

All the best matey  :thumbup

You must be gutted after the time you were looking for a car then the work you done on it. Was good watching you work through it. Hope things work out. All the best.

Spraying looks so easy as well doesn't it, which of course it is for the Pro's - but to us mere mortals/amateurs, its very tough to get right. Top man for even trying it matey!

Just a though - something you could consider Wayne is lying them on their backs, so you have a much flatter surface to spray - would that help do you think?

Good luck regardless!

Good call on the lying wings flat lan.

When we had a body shop that’s how they painted the wings (on proper frame)

Sanded down the wings once flatted the paint not looking to bad on one ,some reaction on on the other wing

Had to much paint coming though the gun.

l think l have adjusted it correctly 

This is the first time l have painted using a spray gun in 35 years

Painted the rear spoiler (was bright red) turned out very well.

Happy with the finish 

Got granddaughter staying this weekend so of for shower and play

Also a very sad day on Friday,the bandit went to South Wales,But Going to a good home

Hi Wayne, with some advice of the body-shop it will end up all nice. It is a chemical reaction of two different kinds of paint.
