    I have moved on to the boot panel now.

    Sanded both sides and then some rough filler applied where needed

    How do the edges line up in the body aperture? Then of course you’ve got to allow for some sort of sealing strip. Good work so far!

    The sealing strip is in place already. The edges are pretty good on the boot, I will have to do a small amount of shaping but nothing too bad

    Underside of bonnet filler sanded and then etch primed.




    There are some minor imperfections that need attention/filler. Applying a coat of primer has made it much easier to see these.

    Filler applied to areas that needed it on the underside of the boot panel




    Boot aperture etch and high build primed




    Boot underside filler then sanded, etch and high build primed.




    Tomorrow will be time to turn the boot over and attack the outer side

    Boot panel turned over and etch primed




    It is so much easier to see the imperfections when it is in primer and all the same colour. Out with the filler




    Whilst waiting for things to dry I spent some time making a template for a boot liner bottom panel

    Kuga - How was your outer boot panel for waviness?
    Running your palm over the surface
    My old Dax panel lost something over the years as you can see
    Mine was well out of shape side to side and front to back.

    To be honest it was pretty good. I had to reshape it a bit to get the bottom lip to fit the body though

    Probably teaching Grandma to suck eggs, but just make sure you can get the boot panel in and out without bending. Card bends a lot, very easily.
    When I made one for my old Sumo, I had to make it in 3 sections - no way it would go in as one piece.

    Very interested in your paint prep work - please keep the details coming.

    The template is hardboard. But yes the finished product will made in 3 sections, a large central section and two smaller corner pieces. Pretty much as the template is already
