Some photos of the Hull ,first painted it orange brown(rust) then will do the red oxide followed by grey primer then finish with the colour so if it gets scratched or bumped the rust will show through

decided to paint the hull today thought i would do it in the greenhouse put paper over the glass ,warm no direct sun got a loan of my brothers compressor and spray gun ,its all going swimmingly fine what could go wrong ? never forget mother nature, doing the 3rd pass every flying ant in Scotland suddenly emerges from a corner and sticks to the hull ,the black lumpy look with wings isn't very appealing . Thought I would sand them off ,how long does it take for these things to stop flapping their wings .just leaving it overnight and may use the heat gun and scraper tomorrow ,might take a picture if they stop staring at me .Cheers Marky

may go well with the crinkle effect you have on the restoration Doug ,thought maybe a light sand for the flock wall paper look .gives a whole new meaning to fly on boat (flying boat)
