February 2016

A cold February – it’s always cold in Feb – saw the welding and other bodywork work finished. Time for paint – well, etch primer anyway.

This is a paint designed to physically bond itself to the substrate to which it is applied. It’s achieved by combining an acid with the paint so that the acid microscopically etches the surface of the substrate, thus forming a physical and chemical bond between the two.

It’ll be a while before the car starts to look finished, but this is down to Peter’s fanatical attention to detail. He just wants to get it perfect. There’s a lot of rubbing down involved…

Bonnet is now etch primed
Nearside etch primed
Offside etch primed
Rear etch primed
