So finally after several weeks of welding, panel beating filling and sanding the Midget was ready for it’s first couple of coats of primer.
The primer used was two pack Epoxy primer. Two coats were applied.
The primer was applied on Friday and was ready for initial flatting on Sunday.
Over all I was pleased with the result. A few issues became apparent now the car was one uniform colour. This revealed a couple of low spots but nothing a skim of knifing putty and 320 grit in a block couldn’t solve.
A guide coat was applied to show any low spots.
I have managed to flat one side of the car today and hopefully with a bit of help flat the rest tomorrow. After this I will apply several more coats of the primer and do a final flatting hopefully next weekend.
The owner came around and brought the grill he wants to fit. It is an original Austin Healey Sprite item for a pre ’70 car. I think this is a great choice and ,in my opinion, is the most attractive of all the grills.
