    looking good!
    why have you only masked/sanded down the section that has been repaired?
    should be epic when done
    good work dude! keep it up man!

    Only the repaired sections need primer to fill any tiny pin holes etc, then the primer will be sanded with 400g then 800g wet along with the rest of the car then wet scotched to make sure all the surface is keyed properly.
    Because the paint im going to be using is such a high solid it will be able to cover the green paint without affecting the final colour so theres no need to primer the whole car Smile

    but yh will defo keep the pics coming
