On It’s Way


So today I started painting the sideskirts, But I ran into a few issues. The spray can started to leak and caused a lot of drip marks on the sideskirts, Shortly after that, the paint started to fog up and was looking rather frosty. I was pretty pissed off to say the least. So I dropped everything, Cooled down for a little and headed over to Peps to get some more paint. Turns out the supplier had labeled the cans wrong, So with my acrylic paint, I had enamel thinners matched with it. Peps were more than happy to supply me with 2 new cans for free, And I bought another can for good measure.


So anyway, I managed to get the front bumper painted and cleared, And the skirts have been sanded back, Ready for a repaint. Hopefully I’ll have time to finish off the skirts this weekend.

In other news, I scored a free set of Bridgestone tyres … Awesome!

Fifty Thousand And Counting

I’d just like to thank you all for continuing to follow RoadsterGarage. I really didn’t think that the blog would be going as good as it is. So once again, Thank you all for pushing the view count over the fifty thousand mark!

Prep Work


Well today I decided to get some paintwork on my body kit. So off I went to the local Peps auto parts to get some paint made up. I then headed off to Repco to get some other goodies.

So I spent the night prepping the skirts and bumper for paint tomorrow. I started off with a 400 grit, then worked up to a 800 grit, Finishing it off with a 1200 grit wet and dry sand paper.

I then gave the bits a wipe over with some wax & grease remover and hit it with the primer. Tomorrow I should be able to lay a few layers of paint on the kit.
