I tried rubbing down the paint with some 600 wet and dry and finished off with 1000 grit and Tcut.
The blisters seem to be in the last coat only and although I was quite prepared to have to blow another coat on top it's come up well after a good polish.

Having purchased my Vauxhall last year the paint on the car was in good condition, not over shiny but just right in my eyes anyhow! I was interested to find a small invoice from the paint shop in New Zealand who had carried out the work in Maroon over black with pin stripping in gold. The job was done in 1963 for the total sum of 36 pounds!!! Guess that equates to around half hours work today Laughing
