Getting ready for and painting
A lot of filling and sanding later i managed to get the car body to a nice finish using layers of primer to spot rough patches as i sanded back the layers, including filler primer and elbow grease. i prep'ed the car with grey primer as suggested by Abacus (who mixed the Lotus Krypton Green for me). panel wipe and raggs removed all the dust before finally spraying with the devilbiss which i set to give me a medium fan and paint amount and a pressure of around 28-30 psi. I found this to be the best pressure for the paint i was using and the gun and nozzle combination of various sites and youtube tutorials.
