yeh get it done much quicker than the p80 i got lol plus the paint was flakin so most of it came off with out 1 much hassle, then i used p80/p125 to buff it up feady for final primier and filler, cos i use p400 it shows all the low spots so i can fill em better

if you want to see your low spots , spray a darker colour than the filler that you are using , and then run a peice of sand paper over it using a flat board with the paper , any dark colours that dont come off which you sprayed onto it , means there are still low spots

give it a try Very Happy

well my primers grey anyway lol (the rust proof 1 that is) then on the bonnet ive used rough wet an dry and removed the primer on the highest spots, just gotta whack a layer of filler, sand it down, spray my white primer over the top and then spray the true vauxhall white on top of that lol i dont think it had clearcoat tho

here be a few pics i took throughout the day while doing various bits on the car
a bit of interior bling (fuse box 'neon' made out of a glowstick lol)

the new and old camshaft cover gaskets

after i cleaned the camshaft cover

rear door now rust free

this is where i found a few dents so while i had the filler out i 'fixed' em


not paint (id do the whole bumper if it was) its filler dust

the wing and sill now rust free (i went over onto the sill so thought id check for rust while i was there, shouldnt have bothered lol)

this is how dusty i got lmao so i thought id give i comparison of how dusty me and the car were)
