Very minor update

I sprayed the topcoat onto a few bits and pieces today (mostly hinges). I was happily surprised to see how dark the Trafalgar blue is "in the flesh" - it looks even better than I was expecting it to.

The front panel has developed the dreaded primer cracks I also got on the bonnet. Hopefully it won't happen to any more panels now considering they've had a few weeks to dry properly since I put the primer on.

The paint that leaked under the masking tape onto the wood comes off pretty easily with thinners; the main problem is not getting thinners on the primed metal next to it and washing the primer off.
