Lovely subject Al. One of my favorite sports cars of all time. I do prefer the dark blue though....

Thanks all.

I considered dark blue Sam but in the end the yellow ochre won out. Probably cos I had a Hillman Imp Californian in that colour.

Even with five coats of Protec clear gloss, I couldn't get a good shine so a little polishing was in order. It's still not what I wanted but it will do to get my mojo back.

I applied some BMF to the chrome side strips, painted the centre of the Minilites gloss back (another period touch) and sprayed the soft top. UNfortunately, the wheel nuts on the aftermarket wheels are poorly fefined.

Finish looks great - as do the wheels and top. Nice one, Al.

Great job, you don't want it super glossy mate they wasn't back then. Looks perfect finish for the year.

Beautiful work! I echo kpnuts about the body gloss - far more period accurate than a modern 'liquid finish' effect. And the soft top roof is just fabulous, the finish is absolutely new leather looking.
