The Car: A Fresh Coat of Paint.

After I discovered that the front of the car was poorly repaired after an accident I dropped the car at Les’s Panel Shop in Pietermaritzburg for repairs. While it was there I decided to do this trip. And because I didn’t want to do this trip in a boring red Alfa, and because Les gave me a brilliant deal on a respray, we did a colour change as well.

Bluette. This colour seems to change dramatically with the light.

Body panels went blue first, just as a test.

On the car the colour looks great.
