Hi all.

The restoration goes on in Norway, and now I need som help and advise regarding the painting job on my car.

What kind of filler, base coat and paint is the best for me?

Tha car is stripped for all old paint and filler, and I need to start from bare fibreglass.


Best regards

Atle Granby

Hello Atle,


hope you are well.

I'll send you details of the paint/primer/elasticisers used on my Peerless when I'm back in the office tomorrow.

All the best,

Hi Atle,

I used (for the first time) two pack primer and top coat on my car and after 11 years and 46,000 miles its still in pretty good shape considering it doesnt get a lot of TLC.

On all the repairs I undertook I used plasticizers in with the resin and coated the complete shell in a very fine tissue fibre glass before going onto to use the 2 pack primer.

The primer is very good at building up areas as it cures in a short time and you can get on and flat it down.

Every possible precaution must be taken when using these products as they are very harmful.

I had a separate air feed to my head mask and I have a sizable extraction unit in my workshop but it still knocked me about and I lost about 10lbs....mmm perhaps I should do another one, or maybe 3!disbelief

If you want to have a chat about it then we can sort out a time for you to call mebiggrin




I was hoping you could advice me, as I remember you used some new products on your car.

Last news from Norway: I am following a roumer about a Peerless seen in Norway in the 80`s. I contacted the Norwegian DVLA, and they are trying help me find some info. about the car. But at this stage the only Peerless in Norway seems to be the US car. But I will ceep tacking
