It looks great Gragham. Is that a Webasto sunroof, and what is the colour? I've always thought GT's look best in blue.

Hi Phil, thank you, it's not a Webasto but a 1980's glass hatch which I am trying very hard not to break! I don't know if you can still get them.The blue is actually a lot deeper than it looks there, due to the white tent where I am spraying. I have just added a third picture showing the door mirrors, same paint, same gun different lght.

GT looking great. How much paint required to spray the four coats of colour? Is the colour coat an acryllic laquer to go with the clear acryllic top coat as you stated that the colour coat is cellulose?

Comment by Graham Prosser
Hi Alan, the paint sequence was: Aerosol etch primer over most of the car, followed by cellulose black primer/ filler, followed by mettallic blue cellulose then U-Pol acryllic clear coat.Used about 2.5 L primer/filler followed by 2.5L top coat and maybe 1L of clear coat, plus lots of stopper, loads of wet & dry plus a fair bit of filler as well!In theory you should not need to use clear coat with cellulose, but I have been advised that to help protect the metallic paint I should use a clear coat.

Forgot to add that the reason I used the black priner was that it deepened the colour of the top coat. The metallic cellulose is pretty transparent so a dark base helps a lot to get a decent depth of colour.
