Had to heat some of it up to stop it being too brittle, most of it came off without worrying about a heat gun

Getting the wrap off was a bit of a pain, will be good once its painted amd reassembled though

Finally have the e36 roof, rear quaters and boot under coated amd prepped for top coat, now have to mask the whole thing off again and apply the top coat

I have a new appreciation for how much work goes into prepping for paint, after effing up 2 doors by short changing the prep and having to sand them back and undercoat them again, I wasn't taking any chances with prepping the rest of the car, many many hours spent sanding, I'm almost too nervous to top coat it for fear of effing it up

Its been slow going since I've been back at work, also have been away most weekends

and now its pi$$ing rain in Canberra today so I won't top coat it this weekend

Some pics of the prepped undercoat
