Paint colours

The under body, firewall, boot area all reveal some interesting points as to what may have been the process involved on the day.
The first thing is that the floor pan is a combination of colours. Starting as a Grey black paint , the car is then sprayed in primmer (red oxide) and then its body colour with the doors fitted. The boot area and firewall are painted at a later stage and are not BLACK. They are a Blue grey colour. This colour is also used under the rear wheel houses over the proof coat as can be seen in the photo above right. The proof coat extends down to the bottom of the chassis rail which was masked along the outer edge.
