Doing all the underneath and inside's first is a great idea, I think I'll do the same, I guess it allows you to get a good feel for how the gun / paint is laying down before you hit the all important big area's!

I just laid down my last (hopefully) coat of high fill on the rear quarters and doors. Lots of sanding then I'll be onto my guide coats.

The other reason for doing the less visible areas first is to avoid getting any overspray on the more visible areas. Keep at it Daz. Good painting weather in Adelaide at last.

Cleveland is basically a rip off of a BBC. So in essence a Cleveland is a small bore BBC!
