Checked sticky today,paint looking good.

Open the garage door ,found that it is the wrong colour 

Its a creamy white not a bright white 

Got a rattle can of the paint shop which is the correct colour 

So will go to the paint shop and get the correct paint next Saturday 

If should be easier to paint this time round

Always a chance that the paint doesn't match perfect. At least you've had a bit of practice now. Hopefully be spot on next time 👍

Cheers Billy. Has been 35 years the last time l use a paint gun ,quite surprised it turned out that good 

Is it a body shop quality job, no but not bad for a home garage paint job 

It may turn out better this time

I was going to try and match the white on my hatch as I don't know the exact code. Could end up doing loads of work for a poor result. it's gave me the urge and now I think I'm going to change the colour.

After seeing the retropower chevette im thinking of a nice metallic grey.

Has anyone used K 2 paint as the local paint shop will not do cellulose paint 

Is the same as using cellulose paint,never use k2 paint before 

Any information welcome

Wayne, i'm guessing you mean 2k? Its paint which you add a hardener to and if needed small amount of thinners, the paint supplier can explain all this to you.

You can spray it at home but you will need a air fed mask or a mask that is recommended for this type of paint as the hardener can be harmfull to your health, make sure you have good ventalation in your garage.

The end result will give you a shinnier finish than cellulose, it will air dry in the current temperatures but will take a couple of days and even more to harden properly. Better long term as well.

You could have a look at Anthracite which was a Manta colour of that vintage. There is also Steel Grey and Dolphin Grey which were 87MY colours. Try Googling them.

What l like about the kick panel is that it’s so well (quite surprised)

The fact that is was made from scrap 

And the cost is £0.00 .No cost at all 

And l made it
