    I took the rolling body in for paint yesterday, so we masked it all up for the final paint and prepped the body.
    (prior to taking it in I gave the whole body a very light 500 grit sand)

    And today the final paint was sprayed, I was really chuffed with the job, just the right amount of orange peel to make it look like it did in the day.
    Very happy with the job, you never know exactly what it will be like until its painted so nervous times.
    I bought the car back home and have left it in the warm garage for the paint to harden over the next couple of weeks.

    Another milestone. I'm guessing it will be hard to stop yourself wanting to progress assembly!

    Thanks everyone for your comments.
    Assembly has started now but only on interior while the exterior paint (PPG Deltron DG) hardens.
    I have been also restoring the handbrake, air vents, wiper motor & assembly, this will all be fitted when finished this week. On to the wiring next.

    Leadfoot, Thanks for your post, I have a lot of info' on the 63 Monte Carlo Rallye Sprint cars if you need some info' I will be happy to help.
    Great to see pics of your car, always keen to see more.
    Cheers to all
