Further work on our 1964 Land Rover paint

We think we have now mastered the blending method we needed to use on the front panels of our 1964 Land Rover.

The key to the blending was in the thickness of the paint and also applying it with a roller.

We needed to apply a further layer of watered down oil based colour with a roller and then once set we buffed the areas to bring back the colour variation from underneath.

This gave a weathered look and works very well against the existing panels that we have not touched.

With such a variety of colours used on the body it was always going to be difficult to colour match perfectly. The bonnet to the wing is noticeable, the wing to the door blends beautifully.
