the other thing i've just thought of as well dave, i had a purple pearl that i put on a tr7 in the 90's and that was really dark until i shot the lacquer over it .Was a bit of a bum puckering moment though, i just had to trust the paint guy in the end.

Oh I'm a long way off yet and I have a few busy weeks ahead so progress will be slow. My worst nightmare will be painting it and then finding some flaw, it would be gut wrenching lol

Hi mate, you can take it down with a more coarse one if you need to. Basically you will find that you will put filler on then take it off then put it on again and repeat so I use a coarse paper to get to where I basically want to be then start working through the grades. You will still end up with sand marks so then you will want to use top stop or similar really fine filler and you a mega fine paper to finish it off

If thats proper basecoat is requires 2k lacquer over the top once dry, only 2k Paint which is the colour which you mix with hardener is direct gloss.  :highfive:
