This section under the fenders is it painted with base coat? looking at the photo it appears that it wasn't!

Painted in body colour. The shell was painted with doors & trunk lid attached (& open).

The rest of the panels were painted on stands (hood/bonnet painted vertically hanging by the hinge points)

Thanks Kerry, Im painting the 65 in Caspain Blue, seeing its a metalic would it be better to paint with all panels on or with hood and fenders off (which would be easier)?

Cheers
Mark

As long as whoever is doing the painting is confident panels off should be fine.

As it I a COB Colour I would recommend setting up the guards and Bonnet on a Jig in front of the car and then painting car and panels in the same process.

If you are not totally confident I would paint the car as an assembled unit after doing the door shuts and A pillars in hardened basecoat, then simply opening the doors and shooting the clear in and out as you paint.

Cheers
Lance.

You can also hang the front guards on the car but move them forward on the bolt holes

Shaunp is 100% correct (he usually is if I remember correctly) and you can lay the bonnet between them on some 25 x 25 to do the front as a unit thus keeping the same spray pattern

Thanks fellas I have a bit to think about with painting this car, I could also take doors off paint door jams and boot and under fender areas then put all back together and paint as complete body. Although this will require more work.


Thanks
