Painting progress

Despite other priorities and distractions progress continues on many aspects of 629/729's restoration, most noticably being its exterior preparation and painting.
Having had its initial sand and prep painting, works are now being focussed on the filling of the many "battle scars" received whilst in service.....

....whilst also tidying up the holes left from the removal and relocation of newer body features.

The roof having been previously inspected and sealed is now receiving its final silver coat as well as the repainting of the black gutter strip to lift its appearance and the interest of the restorers.

On the rear of the car a sample section of Indian Red has now been sprayed to confirm the results of the preparation efforts and the body colour selection.

It wont happen over night but it is happening...........
