Billy Chassis - Stage 2

At this stage with the buffer beams fitted, it is recommended that the chassis is painted.

Firstly I applied Isopropyl Alcohol cleaner with cotton wool balls to remove the engineering oil, followed by a hot water and detergent bath. The chassis was then dried using an electric hair dryer set on hot.

Once cleaned I put on a pair of latex gloves to prevent greasy fingerprints appearing later in the finish.

With the chassis now ready for spraying I applied one coat of U-Pol etching primer followed by two coats of Halfords enamel grey primer.

Next stage, the top coat.
