Top coats.

So the primer was flatted back and the low spots filled and rubbed level.

Several more coats of epoxy primer were then added and  the process repeated.

After this was flatted it was finally time to start thinking about the top coat. The Midget will be painted in the original colour of Brooklands Green.

First off the door shuts, edges and gaps were painted with a small spray gun.

After this I sprayed 4 coats of top coat over the whole car.

The finish is not perfect with a small amount of orange peel and the odd bit of dust which I expected. These will flat out before the final polish after time has been given for the lacquer to harden fully.

I am pleased with the result as you can see my shadow giving the thumbs up below.
