Is it Windsor blue and atlantis Blue. Back in the day my best mate had a Windsor Blue van that looked good. I always like the look of caribbean turquoise as well

 

Looking Good, cant wait to see the colour go on !!

The lighter blue is Deauville Blue and the darker sample is Impulse Blue. Still having trouble deciding which one to go with. The Bursons store manager is friend of mine who mixed all the samples. I also got him to mix me up a sample of Ultra blue but when he finished mixing it he tossed it in the bin and said your not painting your car that colour. When I have seen Toranas that the owners said its ultra blue they have been a metallic, apparently its not going by the speck sheet on the paint mix machine.

Now that the weather is worming up I managed to do the final rub down today and ready for colour. I was going to spray it in the shed but in realiaty there is just to much dust floading around. My neighbour has stock piles of top soil stacked up against his fence and 10 meters from my shed, so I have decided to send it to the smash repair shop that my son works at and spray it in their spray booth.

I was hopeing to get the Panno home before christmass but it just didn't happen, and I prefered it to be done right rather than rush it. All the removable panels have now been painted and very shiny straight out of the gun. Body to go in the booth early next year.

Don't you love it how panel shops have no issue getting filler dust absolutely everywhere?

 

It'd be pretty easy to do your front end alignment now. Do you know anyone capable of that? Just kidding. Thanks for your previous posts on alignment. It has helped me heaps with my LX.

 

Great work Lenny!

 

Regards, Steve.

Well its finally all painted, I went down to the panel shop last week and fitted up all the panels to make it easier to get it home and less risk of scratching the new paint. I hate assembling cars that the panels have been painted separately, but so far so good no scratches. Back in the shed and getting stuck into the assembly.

 

Had a go at tinting the windows, first timer and reasonably happy with the results, but a job probably best left for the professionals.

decided to add an extra stop light to make sure no dick heads run up my ass, the originals weren't much chop in the direct sunlight. Nice and bright now so no excuse tailgaters.

Some new trim turned up last week, it took me three days to install. I was not in a hurry so decided to do an initial fit and let it sit for a day to help remove some of the creases and ripples. Over the next 24 hours I kept giving it a tug and stretch here and there till most of the ripples were removed, then give it a quick go over with the heat gun to remove the remaining small little ripples. Happy with the results.

 

The headlining was made by a forum member C&G auto trimming. Its the third headlining I have purchased from them and all have fitted excellent.

 

Thanks Cindy, well done.

Thanks Ron, I used bugger all glue.  Sika brand spray contact cement was used arount the rear upper after I was finally happy with the rest. In the photo you can see contact cement all over the side panels, that was from the previous owners headlining fitment. They sure must have liked contact cement it was everywhere. I intend to deck out the back so it will get covered soon.
