Hi all well started with some colour, you may notice not the colour I originally stated as I've given up on Citroen giving me the code (so now of course I will have to change the carpet colour [mad][mad])
anyhoo here is the start of the rusting (lots more work to be done on it, but I think its a good starting point)

Hi all well after a disasterous reaction on the paintwork on this I've sorted it (will never be a great job but is ok as an old jalopy) did a bit more staining of the doors and the bodywork and added some rust effects to the black paintwork, still a long way to go on it but is starting to look better now.

Hi all I was checking some of the pictures, one advantage of that is looking at pictures of things 2 and sometimes 3 times bigger than the actual thing you see faults you wouldnt see on the actual item, like for instance a lot of the flat areas of rust are, just that flat, no blistering and no reason to be rust coloured, so I,ve fixed that and dulled the doors and bodywork down and started blending panels and adding general grime (I must say I'm quite pleased with the results so far) if things carry on like this I think the finished thing will look quite realistic (of course having said that I will no probably go and ruin it)

does anyone know how to dull down and dirty the windows and windscreen? all tip welcome.

Hi all well I'm sure you must be getting bored of this by now (I know you're all so polite you wont say so) so I'll take advantage of your good nature and continue the onslaught.

Paintwork looks fine from here Ken, whatever you did to recover it definite worked mate. But that rust looks so good and with the blisters under the paint totally sells it as real.
You nailed the vinyl look too, the seats look like they are padded and would squish if you pushed them.

To dull down the screen you can use highly thinned Tamiya Buff or deck tan (low pressure through the airbrush) and it gives a nice dusty effect. And maybe then dip a an old toothbrush in some muddy coloured paints and flick it over the screen and bonnet, some "bird poop" here and there would help,give it the effect of being left outside neglected too
