Started painting parts, which do not require any more preparation steps. Mostly painted semi-gloss black as base colour before Carbon Fiber decals can be applied. Some parts will stay SG black, because there is simply too much work to cover all parts which should be covered with CF decals. Painted engine and gearbox parts in Alclad aluminium. Also painted some suspension and brake parts with shades of gold and burnt metal. I still have more small parts to prime and paint. Body panel will have to be checked for surface imperfections, puttied and primer with white primer, before body colour paint could be applied.
