Right then, we sprayed the Gold Metal flake last night and soooo pleased about the way it has come out. Unfotunately the photos dont show the flake in the paint... must be the way the light reflects of it or something. Sad

But you can kind of make it out i guess....











Still needs another coat of laquer as you can feel the flake when running your hands on it.

Nice one dude , ....I put about 6 coats of laquer over flake last time i sprayed it ,to stop the 'feel' of the flake .....but you need to let it dry first or the flake will surface.

Well dad flatted it back last night and applied the last coat of clear coat. Its so much nicer now and cant 'feel' the flake in the paint anymore. Well pleased. Very Happy
Managed to get a price on a fuel sender from GSF carparts... 29+vat which isnt too bad. Just need to find some time to pick one up from them, the bonnet can then be fitted, along with the windscreen and dash reassembled. The Wheels are next to get the paint treatment.

If you want me to just send me a text, it's no hassle to drop down through Brizzle instead of doing the M5.
If I'm coming down through Bristol I will be on the A370 etc anyway.
The offer's there fella.
