    PAINT ROOM - TIM

    The new LDM 72 is a difficult one to spray.

    First the whole car is sprayed in the dark colour then the roof is masked off so that the lighter colour can go on.

    Then this huge paint mask is placed over the entire car so that the bottom can be sprayed in the darker colour again.

    It seems an odd way to do it but it is the quickest and easiest method and the results are great.

    OUT AND ABOUT

    Martyn went to Thorpe Park (a theme park near London with lots of rides) on Wednesday and saw this!!

    It is an old Ford truck that had an Airstream caravan on the back which was serving food.

    The tyres were painted white and the truck isn't what you would call 'Show-quality' but it was nice to see a real one up close.
