    Hey, Alpal, Is there an age limit? I may have to forge papers to get entry!

    And the forecast for Easter is: Rain, rain and more rain! Oh, and did I mention rain?

    I actually don't care this year. We have been really lucky for the last few years with the weather. I remember it used to rain EVERY Easter. I just need to get away and catch up with lots of old friends.

    I think it's going to be wet across the East coast this Easter...........

    I'm frantically trying to get the prep finished enough, for some 2 pac primer on the SC, after months of bare metal, to protect it, prior to the weather change on Thursday...o_O

    My son informs me that the Drone cannot fly in the rain so fingers crossed.

    We have no control over the weather, what happens happens. ATM there may not even be a photo shoot if it's wet so fingers definitely crossed. The drone shots will be brilliant if we do get some.

    if necessary, just metal prep and get a couple of coats on.
    can bog over the primer later

    Cheers for that Col, and although that is an option, (which I'll probably need to do anyway, when I find all the bits I missed:(), I was aiming at a "ready to paint" result, before priming.

    I've just this minute, finished the worst, and hopefully the last bit of prep - painstakingly removing the paint from the many little air vents on the "b" pillars. No sanding tool or "strip-it" disc will fit between those fins, and especially with each individual shape. Possibly a good arguement for sandblasting, if you can cope with the aftermath mess.o_O

    Anyway, I'm so close now - I can taste it!:)

    Etch and primer, will then show me whether the countless hours of prep since Boxing Day, is actually as good as I hope.:eek:
