The Last Lap
By Saturday 30th April 2011 we had almost finished the re-paint of FPE88, and our good luck with the weather continued with a nice sunny day to finish off the Ayres Red glossing on the lower panels and the lower front panel.
And when we were half-way through that I stopped to take a few pictures...
1. Work in progress, and the red
looks so much better than the orange!
2. A head-on portrait view, complete
with paint, paintbrush, and cushion. No sign of the painter though! (Maybe he
had wandered off to take pictures or something... ;-)
3. A closer view of the lower front
panel. Fiddly to paint, but the result is so rewarding!
4. Later on and we have completed the
'Last Lap' of the re-paint. First the offside view...
5. ...now the head-on view...
6. ...finally the nearside
view! I'd have taken a picture of the back at the same time, but we
didn't want to move FPE88 with wet paint on the lower panels!
