Hi Rik,

Glad I've inspired you! Give it a go, you'll be impressed with the results and that all important feeling of self satisfaction from doing the job yourself. Just rememeber, take your time and be paitent. Always better to keep the paint coats light and many rather than few and thick. And if you make a mistake just wait for the paint to dry, sand it back and start again.
I remember my first attempt at spraying, was on and old C reg orion I had, I was removing some rust spots. Think I must have attempted it about 5 times before I was happy with the finish. I was blending the colour into the original paint on the front wings which is always difficult as the original paint was faded a bit. But once hardened I gave it a t cut and it looked great!
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
