looking great!

It will be good if you get it ceramic coated after its done, that will really add to the paint and lock it all in

Aye I've been looking into that mate, unsure of prices yet but it's definitely something I want to do as the paint is the reason I bought the car so i want to do my best to look after it.
It might not look like a lots been done since the last update but a f**k ton of work has gone into this since then. There has been a multitude of dents and ripples across most of the body. This car has not had an easy life... But paint goes on tomorrow as we are now in final primer :cool:

You can see how much work they've done from this panel alone.

Looks like it will be well, what did they do with the seam between rear quarter to rear numberplate panel, they often seem(no pun intended) to crack over time
