re: canned spray paint, sorry to mention this so late in the game, but I am not at all sure why in the US "Rustoleum" has become so prevalent that Krylon is actually hard to find.

Rustoleum IMHO takes MUCH longer to dry, and never goes on as well as Krylon. Just my own humble findings.

I've never even heard of Krylon.

Actually, one of our Advance Autos has an entire paint section dedicated to Krylon.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

Maybe it's not in Oz. It's "the old standard" in the US. a few decades back, in my youth, I never once saw a can of Rustoleum. Now it's taken over in most home paint stores. Krylon appears to still be darling f the automotive sector.

Anyway, light coats, from a distance, not really covering completely in the first go = faster drying for 2nd coat.

Moving on down the body. Bogging the abs, back and cod armour. Getting ready for paint.

Doing a bit of dolly-work and panel-beating some accessible parts of the suit to save using too much bog. Here's some of the tools I use for this.

Sure is mate. :)

I got a couple of hours in today to mask off the gold again then give the red a few coats of clear to protect it.

Really loving this colour in full sun!

Worm gear drive for the hinges has been fabricated by my engineer friend. Now to check for fit and see how much it needs to be modified. The motor is just a test motor. The actual motor will be about eight inches away connected by a flexible cable.

That's a neat piece of machining there. Is that block around 12mm (1/2") thick?

I haven't measured it yet. Just picked it up tonight, but yes, it's about that.
