Painting

I am going to paint the GTM myself. As the car is small and most of the panels come off I am hoping this will be relatively easy.
The best time to paint the engine bay is when the subframe and engine are out and as I wanted to get these back in, this was the ideal place to start. There were a few old holes that needed glassing over followed by a small amount of filler to smooth things out. To keep things simple as possible I decided to keep the car the same colour as the gel coat and to use cellulose paint. Around three coats of primer were applied being sanded down with 600 wet and dry, followed by around three coats of blue before being buffed up.
