    Talking Snowflake refurb stage 1 and 2..... (few pics)

    Due to the long weekend and half decent weather i decided to start my refurb!! Got the paint and stuff last week, got all my gear out and made a start.
    1st i rubbed down the wheels so as the new paint would 'key', then any imperfections got filled with some new aluminium filler i found.
    Then came the black basecoat, as im using a 2 stage colour paint.
    Then today i gave 2 a quick blow over with the silver coat, but they still need a bit of sanding down due to a reaction with the paint!!
    More to come in the week when i get more time......

    LOL.... thats one of the main reasons for the refurb....mrs and kerbs dont mix! There were a few scuffs, but nothing bad, but really i just wanted to give them a good paint job.
    Cheers for the comments guys, will try and get them finished in the week, so look out for the finished results!

    very nice indeed - my only concern with a dark base coat is any marks or chips will really stand out -but otherwise a fantastic job
