  1. I am still thinking about the angle of the tire. It seems something odd for me.

    Here are some images after applying the top coat. Used Toyota white 058 as the color.

    A Morris Minor shell with Fiat powertrain. So it is neither the Minor nor the Fiat.

    After sanding the primer, applied the filler coat. Gray color filler applied on the body shell. Later thought to use white color filler as the top coat will be white.

    Changed my Viva Elite timing belt as a DIV task on last weekend. Added some images for reference. The new belt has two stripes to make the job easier.

    Body filling was the next step. Unfortunately I have only few pictures of this step. Anyhow followed the above video instructions throughout the filling process. Additionally applied putty on top of filled areas and small scratches. After all preparation applied the primer coat. Below images are after sanding the primer coat.

    I did not try it. So may be possible. But need to fill the tank before use.

    It need to wait around 3-4 minutes till the tank fill. When its reach 50-60 psi I am starting the spray work. In the beginning the pressure it bit high. So controlling it by sprayer adjustment. When pressure reducing need to adjust it gradually. In short it does not hold constant pressure. But can manage when you are familiar with it. With fully filled air tank, It can spray complete panel once. I could apply last coat also using it. But panel by panel. The hood was the biggest panel which I couldn't handle with it. So hired a compressor when painting the hood.

    Painting was a most challenging field for me. Because never attempt to do a vehicle paint job earlier other than painting walls in the house . But I have watched (not seen) many times how a painter working from applying filler to last coat. There is a neighbor who do paint jobs and that was a big strength for me as it is possible to clarify somethings from him. So finally decided to learn the art of painting by Moggie. Gathered the basic knowledge from reading some articles and found following video very informative. Also these two technical books. How To Paint A Car At Home In 4 Easy Steps (video)  Causeway Automotive Paints (pdf) Debeer Paints (pdf) Next challenge was a paint gun and a air compressor. Bought a F75 paint spray gun and some flexible hose after expending around Rs 2500. But a air compressor is bit expensive. So again started to find alternatives. Firstly bough a 'paint zoom paint sprayer'. Though it could use with my spray gun with modified hose, the air pressure was not enough to spray well. So found an old deep freezer compressor and a empty AC gas tank. Used them with a foot air pump pressure gauge and some clips to make my air compressor. What could not find was a safety pressure release valve. So had to keep eye on the gauge frequently. When I get familiar with spray gun, watching pressure gauge was not essential as it can feel pressure via spray flame. Tried to remove existing paint in most body panels as the first job. Because the floorboard was completely new it made my task easy.

    Does your airbag indicator light up in pre ignition ? My Elite manual does not light up both airbag & ABS indicators because its not a premium. Is there any other sticker than Immobilizer on your back windscreen ?
