As already seen in the previous pictures; in the end I decided to have the paint done professionally in the off-hours of a bodyshop. I just could not get it to the finish consistently as I wanted.

The last part was very difficult. Could not get the engine to run. Turned out that both fuel pump and injectors got stuck and partially damaged even. I suspect the ethanol in the gasoline that can attract water when stored for a long time.

Many small items are still not up to my standards. Striving (too) much for perfection. I had long been in doubt about the wheels but I decided in the end to go for refurbished original wheels. Bit of work still to do on them.
