wow ! proper work going on in here ! looks hard as nails in it's current state !

you going badgeless up front ? I think it would look weird with a badge if the rest of the car is all shaved.

This looks ace [:D]

Will be interested to see how it comes out with you painting it yourself. What kind of experience do you have with painting stuff?

I have a spray gun and compressor.. but have only had limited success. I tend to struggle painting anything bigger than maybe a numberplate. I always screw up the clear coat!

Anyway, looking good!

Looks good that [Y]

Yeh, white wheels would be good, go with the roof and mirrors!

Hows the finish on the paint? I always got really grainy lacquer when i tried to paint bumpers etc.
