SICK build project! Bummer about the roof sticking to that mat. I've heard about those Molotow chrome pens and gotta get me some. They look great.

Cheers Guys

Late last night after my roof issue, I quicky got to work in fixing it... I managed to rub most of it off then used my fingernail to remove the remaining debris.

It left scratches etc, so a quick sand, mask & lightly resprayed with Alclad Matte Klear Kote. Im reasonably happy with it, you can still see the marks in some angles.

Now Ive got a big night ahead of me to mount everything, I did make the most of last night & got to work on all the small detail stuff.

Before Clearcoat

This is pretty much the worst angle with it catching the light, I can live with that. (its not overly feasable to strip & repaint with 1 day to go & I dont have any extra decals...)

Got the front & rear bumpers pieced together

Cheers, Love the user name!! Very True!

Had a bit of a nightmare last night. I left it upside down after gluing the windows in, on one of those non slip mats. It was a hot day yesterday & the clearcoat is Alclad which is very soft & i guess the 2 decided to stick together...
