Hi from Montreal

Post by Travellerjones on December 29th 2007, 6:02 pm

Hi Folks

Just been looking for a cheap way to paint my 73 MGB and finally came across this great site. Ive heard of cars being painted by hand (my grandfather used to do it many many years ago), but never even gave it a second thought until now.

My MGB is a 73 Roadster, pretty poor nick, but I have been slowly doing it up on the cheap for the last 3-4 yrs. I say cheap as MGs in Quebec are worth almost nothing and so doing a top job wasnt worth the money, especially as the car is really for fun. So the body work is almost complete and I wasnt really looking forward to breaking the news to the wife that my cheap hobby was about to cost me upwards of $1500. So this site may have not only kept my enthusiasm up, but may have saved a marriage......

As I progress I will post some pictures and let you know how it goes.

Thanks again

Some.

Ive got dome pics of the bodywork. Will post later this week. AM hoping to paint it this June (Wife is away for 3 weeks .....). Have been refurbing the front/back axles then painting with Trmeclad Black. the finish is still good, even with the poor Prep.

I'll post back soon

Cheers
Andy
