10th May 2018: Wings
After a chilly start to spring, the AC emerged into daylight in mid April. Having temporarily reassembled the body last autumn, I decided to tackle the wings first. Stripping paint, making minor repairs and painting the underside. Next, I'll be completing the repaint of the front inner panels and chassis. I plan to try out coach-paint from Paragon Paints, both black and body colour. For the original paint scheme, AC used the body colour paint on the visible parts of the chassis around the jacking-points, the ledges that the bonnet rests upon, and the bumper irons and associated bolts. Paragon paint looks as though it will work for those steel components, including wheels. When the time comes, I hope to use Tekaloid coach-paint for the body panels. I'll update the restoration section in due course and let you know how I get on.
