The BN1 is now resplendent in primer and is going to be re-masked ready for real paint. She has not been her factory color of Healey Blue for at least 40 years. It is going to be quite the thrill to see her in person in a couple of months.

Below are a shot of her exposed blue from earlier in the restoration, and what she looks like today getting ready for masking and the paint booth.

Is the superstructure already painted , it looks like it is but hard to tell for sure ?
