We worked on getting this Morris Minor wrapped up today. We painted it over the weekend and this morning painted the jambs and shot the grill a flat silver to break up the black. Because the weather was warm, we were able to get it out of the booth early enough to start the reassembly of what we took apart. Tomorrow we plan on a final cleaning and it will be ready to head home.
Over the past few days we have been sanding on the Morris Minor and today we primed in a few places that really needed extra attention. Because this is not an all out job, we fixed only the areas that really needed it. The body is in decent shape and because we are going with a semi gloss black paint job going all out on the body work isn’t really necessary. Tomorrow we have a small job to paint first thing, then this one will go in. If all goes well, this on will be painted tomorrow. Im anxious to see how it turns out. The egg shell or semi gloss look should look very cool on here.
Meet Morris Minor. He is has had a few little custom up grades and now its time to get the outside looking as nice as the interior and engine. We aren’t really going all out on this little hot rod, but we are going to clean up a couple of old repairs that aren’t up to snuff. We will be painting it back flat black but with a product that will hold up a little better and and a little more user friendly. I wasn’t sure what the black was that was on it, so we opted to remove all of it just in case it was not compatible with our paint. We will be able to paint over whats on it now, but we will seal all of this with a good coat of epoxy. Stay tuned to this one, it will be a cool little hot rod.
