Thanks Brett! The tar and kerosene was what I remember talking about. I knew we had discussed this.

I thought about painting the fenders before mounting them, but I'm worried about all the paint matching so I think I'm better off stopping at the primer stage for the exposed parts of the panels and then shooting the assembled car all at once. I will be painting the doors, hood, and trunklid (bonnet and boot?) while they are removed just because I don't want to get too crazy with the masking etc. and because I don't want to leave any spots unpainted, but those can be painted at the same time as the rest of the car. The fenders, on the other hand... I want those mounted before they get painted so that I don't have to worry about dinging up my nice new paint job when remounting them (I remember how much fun they were to remove).
