Wow! that looks stunning, such a nice colour. I've always loved the shape of these S8's. I remember going for a ride in one when they were new. I must've been about 11 years old lol

After curing for a week, I used a long bed sander and guide coat to ensure a perfect flat finish. I used 180g. Next step was 3 heavy coats of wet on wet primer, later cured in my oven (south facing part of the back garden)
Even today, the panel reached nearly 60 degrees for way more than an hour.
Next thing will be to paint the underside with primer
I went for grey so chips wouldn't be noticeable
