Speedys SSG paint thread

Latest one to go out the door - been a real struggle this one, and in reality a financial disaster but you take the rough with the smooth. Few before and after pics too ! 20180221_133924.jpg 20180221_092917.jpg 20180221_134449.jpg 20171011_114307.jpg 20180221_112126.jpg 20171011_114335.jpg 20180221_...

Brush-painting

Yes Epoxy is the way forward as a first coat - I tend to use the Marine stuff rather than automotive, but it's all pretty good at its job

Which colour looks best?

The original was far more green than it looks on any of these pics anyway.....well it was to my eyes :)
The new colour is a subtle improvement, and the 10 layers of paint removed and associated weight will make it faster

Which colour looks best?

The car has been about 3 different shades of green, but is so badly deteriorated it can't even be scanned to get a match. First time it was green it was on the darker side of the range suggested here. The more recent touch ups are not even close. Trouble is it needs to be a colour we can get a name ...

ScimFest@Curborough 2017

First thing I ask is what is the aim of the weekend, and is it still relevant now as it obviously was when started?? Is it for the Compies and we can go and watch? Is it mainly as a meet up for old friends to chat? Or is it a car show? And then I would ask if it was worth a total overhaul in order t...

SS1 ruined

I did offer the asking price to Dave when he was selling it but wasn't taken seriously (I doubt he wanted to deliver it back to Reading, paid or otherwise!) as I had 2 full sets of Istrian blue panels, a pair of seats and usable hood. But hey ho, not to be. I took it very seriously, but fuel and tr...

SS1

This is the ex-unwin car I sold a few weeks ago. Now totally ruined,(IMO) a bit of profit stuck on, and badly described. What a shame as great chassis and quarter lights etc. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/reliant-scimitar-/112503679025?hash=item1a31bde831:g:1YEAAOSwaWNZf2pf Before 20170607_112244.jpg No...
