    The bay is looking better already. I will look foreward to seeing the finished article round town. Just part way through taking my engine out and know exactly what you mean about the cold, I'm doing it on the drive as well!

    Stay with it mate, its going to look the nuts.

    Looking good dude. What you using to take the paint off with? Think I'll be doing the bay of the mk2 once I strip the tiny 1.3 out of it.

    Carbon roof...? Wink
