Looks good mate. I'm going to tackle the same thing myself but it's alot harder for me as mine is my daily driver so I can't really afford to have it off the road for long. I'm fitting a body kit to mine also so I have to drive around to work and the like with multicoloured panels and parts :oops:

Are you just going to cut the paint back a bit or go for a bare metal respray ?It's probably not necessary for an EF, and I know I won't be bothering!

If I could find someone locally to do a decent backyard job I'd pay someone to do it, coz I'm learning as I go and I don't really want to botch it all up! :)

Yeah going back to bare metal on the outside, probably dont need 2, but by the time you fix a dent here, dent there, scratch there, theres paint edges everywhere, so just as easy to strip it all back.

Not really any shortcuts, its all gotta be rubbed if you want the paint to stick, You use scothbrite on the insides of the doors and door openings egine bay etc, get in all the har to reach places.

What would you recommend for doing the inside of the boot ?
It's pretty curvey and up and down. You'd want to go over it with more than a scotch brite before trying to put more paint down wouldn't you ??
