Glad it didn't bend in two when you lifted it up - before you welded it up some it probably would have!  ::)

Finally got around to painting this 60 shell in Speedwell Blue.

MiniDave

Wow, that turned out great!

What's that I see on the a panel? a reflection or something? Looks like a knob or something?

Edit: Never mind, I figured it out.....that's where the hinges bolt on.

I just happened to forget to tape those holes behind the panel so stuck some rolled up tape in them.

That looks really nice.  77.gif

What are the plans for that one?

94touring

Oh to finish other various items and for the owner to come get it!  He'll be assembling it once back home.

MiniDave

I'll bet he's excited to be getting these pics with color on it......been a long wait.   77.gif

Indeed it looks great! I am sure they will be excited to be able to get to work putting it back together.

Haha yes exactly, it's too much work!   I'd rather be flying!  Or driving my bus around!  Speaking of which this speedwell blue will be what I paint the lower half of the bus.  Hopefully have enough leftover from the gallon I had to buy for this mini to spray it too.

Ok well every last bit of this one has been painted and it's ready to go out the door. 

cstudep

That looks great! I so need to get mine repainted they look so much nicer.

MiniDave

That turned out beautiful! Now the owner just has to make it into a car again......another 2 years of work!

Well done.  77.gif

I doubt people realize just how much WORK it is to paint one of these, even one that's already in good shape.

I really like that colour.  Almost regretting tweed grey, but I've got an interior color that won't go as well with blue.  Speedwell and Island Blue seem to be getting popular for Minis.

Looks good. What was the roof color on that one?

Dave you are so right, I'm on a year and a half but finally seeing the light of getting it on the road.

The roof is new mini pepper white.  Goes well on the classic minis.

That's what I was wondering.  Yea, Totally agree on that.  My interior guy has a houndstooth fabric that is fused to padding so it's not super white which matches the roof color perfectly.

Another car out the door.  Sure feels nice!

I've started on another shell that's been on the wait list. Actually one  of 2 which are the last ones I'll be doing for other people.  It's been rolling around the shop floor for awhile till I had time to start in on it. Fixed up the front left corner the past couple days.  Found an old mouse nest inside the cross member.

Started cutting away back here. Found some stuff I didn't like and a really bad quarter panel repair where the seams weren't even connected for a section.  Instead it was caked with body filler.  Had to order a few extra panels repair sections to finish it off.

More on this car.....did the roof paint the past few days.  Here's color sand and the after buffing pics.

You do good work, it's shame you are retiring  4.gif  ;D
