vinyl spray is OK

.

I remember reading some time ago that you could use vinyl spraypaint to change the colour of your cars interior. i realy like this idea because my interior is getting a bit old and the colour is out. To add to this I saw a beautiful kingo the other day with tan coloured interior. was beautiful but, i dont think it was painted though. I decided to try a colour on an old panel that ive got in the garage and see how it looks. Anyways, this is a shot of the difference. it came out pretty well actually except that i stuffed the handle by putting on too much paint and i didnt paint enough around the edges of the door trim. You cant realy see it from the photo but its hard to notice anyway. At first the material shrivelled which wasnt a good sign. This wasnt such a problem though as when the paint dried it shrank to its original shape.

Rust removal

Got a camera today! time to take some shots.. this my first attempt at removing rust. im using a drill with a wire brush attachment to do the job. im not sure if its the best because it takes a while to get to bare metal. this is a shot of the rear left floor. ive pretty much gone over the whole floor but havent spent enough time getting all the paint off.. all the holes have shown themselves. is this bad rust though? it looks like there is a lot of corrosion on the left side. will i need to do any cutting or is it minor enough to just use filler over the corrosion? comments would be appreciat

Blue Thunder

This is my beastie, HJ 308 kingswood, she's done many k's but she's still going strong and I plan to keep it that way, I have no big plans, just to fix all the rust and dents and probably rebuild the motor and gearbox... :)
