One step back!

Paint went on fine, but then the fish-eyes appeared. There is grease on the door latch mechanism and I must have spread it around when I was wiping down with paint thinner.

Not too big a job sanding it down and cleaning it with thinners.

Meanwhile I’m getting other work done in preparation for re-assembly. All cat whiskers now riveted and ready to be installed once I finish going over the doors.

Second go and I got a good result. Three coats of blue and two coats of clear coat.

Door complete except for the seal which I will put on when the door is installed. I want to leave the paint for a few days to cure well before gluing on the seal.

Next: The other door and filling the trim holes in both doors.
