It was harvest gold base, then someone undersealed it...so i glossed it in wilkos black. We sold it in gloss black and the dude stripped half of it and painted the Harvest gold so it returned it us half gold half black. As he'd spent so long cleaning most of the black off we decided to paint over the harvest gold in Purple. I think the black was taken back to bare metal and then purpled....i guess you will find out when you do paint prep. 


Best driveway paint job we ever did!

Shame that it wasn't stopped there. Looks quite good like that! (Well compared to what it is now)

Was the purple painted over the top of the black and Harvest Gold original paint?

I'm glad I started a random thread so you can see how my projects go. I was browsing the Internet when I came across something interesting. Quick phone call, a viewing and hand over some dosh and I finally have a work shop! So, maybe... Just maybe... My projects will become less random..who knows!!! First I need to move 6 lock up garage and 8 cars in. Shame it's not big enough for all my cars but price was right and it's better than what I had.
