Hi all well started with some colour, you may notice not the colour I originally stated as I've given up on Citroen giving me the code (so now of course I will have to change the carpet colour :mad::mad:)
anyhoo here is the start of the rusting (lots more work to be done on it, but I think its a good starting point)

Hi all well after a disasterous reaction on the paintwork on this I've sorted it (will never be a great job but is ok as an old jalopy) did a bit more staining of the doors and the bodywork and added some rust effects to the black paintwork, still a long way to go on it but is starting to look better now.

Hi all I was checking some of the pictures, one advantage of that is looking at pictures of things 2 and sometimes 3 times bigger than the actual thing you see faults you wouldnt see on the actual item, like for instance a lot of the flat areas of rust are, just that flat, no blistering and no reason to be rust coloured, so I,ve fixed that and dulled the doors and bodywork down and started blending panels and adding general grime (I must say I'm quite pleased with the results so far) if things carry on like this I think the finished thing will look quite realistic (of course having said that I will no probably go and ruin it)






















does anyone know how to dull down and dirty the windows and windscreen? all tip welcome.

Hi all well I'm sure you must be getting bored of this by now (I know you're all so polite you wont say so) so I'll take advantage of your good nature and continue the onslaught.

Im really enjoying watching this come together, although Im getting suspicious that its a real car and you've built some giant furniture to make it look like a model!!

DEFINITELY NOT !!!!
Enjoying every update, and especially the fact that you are depicting a less than pristine show room condition car!
Great work !!!

It needs dents. Hail dents, garage scrapes, something. It's too straight.
