If you saw the paint in person you probably won't doubt my willingness to scratch it. :oops:
After way to much work trying to make it look good with the panel prep work I ran out of F's to give and decided rough enough was good enough and I just wanted a painted car so I accelerated to process by skipping some steps.
The front and bar etc will be black. Same colour scheme as before but green instead of CAT yellow.

Sounds a bit like my welding. I welded a bench once, and told a friend "Don't look too closely at the welds though" He replied dryly, "No need, I can see them from here" :|

Or when I did a concrete slab for a garden shed. Someone asked if I'd written my name in the cement before it set. I said, "No, but you just have to look at the quailty of the work to see my name written all over it" :D

I was going to have gloss black on the front but I started putting it on and it showed up WAY too many imperfections, so I changed out for a satin black. I'm happy with how it turned out. The matte finish contrasts well with the glossy metallic green.

Fairly productive weekend

Not that it looks very different but I've painted the "interior". And fitted up some lights.

Now I just need to get the seats in, but I still have some work under the dash so I'm holding off that for now.

I've also been sorting out the chargers. After the first chargers let the smoke out (maybe I should tell the designer of the power supplies that rectified 240vac is not less than 200vdc :roll:)

And finally I made a more legible HV diagram as opposed to the chicken scratchings in did with a pencil and paper
