Job 35 : Smooth and Prime Wings and Bonnet

 

 

Hours Spent : 28

 

Final work to the drivers side of the car took hours, ensuring everything was smooth and all the lines followed straight down the side of the car without kinks, changes in angle or height.  The bottom of the door needed to be filled out to be closer to the skirt, the rear wing and skirt had already been brought out substantually to line up with the door.

 

 

With everything smooth I could spray the side of the car in a thick coat of spray putty (filler primer), an initial thin coat, followed by several thicker coats (building in thickness each time) prevented runs, whilst covering small imperfections.  Whilst spraying I was also able to sand down and fill the imperfections in the side skirt before spraying it.
