Mildred’s minor surgery – part 2

This is part 2 of Mildred’s minor surgery. A quick update really.

Having found a good old fashioned paint shop that offered a matching service, we headed off with Mildred’s bonnet.

We left the bonnet with them for a couple of hours and picked up the bonnet plus 3 spray cans and a touch up pot.

I am extremely pleased with the result of the painting. Whilst my preparation work was ‘good amateur’, rather than professional standard, the colour match is close on perfect and I am quite pleased with my spray painting. Mildred now has a secure spare wheel hub with 3 welded on studs. She is ready for her next outing.

As a reminder in pictures, this is how it began, and ended:
