Wings are in primer. I could have done with going over them with the spot putty one more time but they needed some protection.

A dry bit of paint fell onto the last coat. They still need a good sanding and more stopper to get the low spots up.

Bonnet has had the last stopper (I hope.) then it should get the last couple of coats of primer.

Ive changed my mind about 10 times over the year ive had it.

If I can get the paint mixed in Celly I think Ill go for Jeep Sahara Tan.

Thanks for the comments but I doubt its anywhere near the standard of your work.

That colour would be really cool :thumbsup:

One question, in the second photo down I notice there is a hole in the lower part of the fender. Is that to give clearance for the steering box?

Thanks for the inspiration to keep going.

The hole in the inner wing is for access to the steering box yes.

Its in a slightly different place on these repro WW2 wings, but the same hole is there on the original.

It does have a big blanking grommet.

I wish I'd thought of simply cutting a hole. I cut out a slot, fab'd up a curved piece and plugged welded it on as a fixed cover. Trust me to do it the hard way. Doh! :rolleyes:

Still, all part of the learning curve I guess! You can just see it at the back there!

The paint leaked a bit but it seems ok. A bit lighter than I thought but Ill spray some inner panels and have a look.

Filling and sanding today.

The cowl where the little flaps were are still low.

Some of the high spots where there before I started welding.

I thought these were supposed to have flat sides.

There are 2 high spots, one on each side where the brace is welded to the front quarter.

Just started again after my winter break.

Ive primed the bonnet twice. first time the paint cracked.

so i took it back to bare metal and started again.

I think I will try some spray filler before I go for more primer.

A Weekend of sanding and filling then sanding some more.

I didnt realise how not flat it was until I started sanding it.

beginning to wish I had went for matt green. Brushed on
