Notice how many different colours the car has been during it’s life

The final finish to the paint

Bubbling had started to appear in a couple of places on the rear arch of my Spitfire.  I removed all the paint to have a look at the scale of the rot.  Previously a metal patch had been poorly welded over the top of the rust and then all covered by a serious amount of filler.  This was all removed and a sections of steel were formed into the correct shapes to follow the profile of the arch.
