now thats when you feel your getting somewhere after a few weeks of filler and prep work ...... but its all about the detail they say so thats why it takes the time it takes

so thats finda unto date ..... I'm currently on the filler work were I joined the front end panel the shell .... I'm about 60% through that so by end of next week I think the front end will be into hight build primer and then I move onto the bonnet , boot and X4 wings

so the shell can now sit for a few weeks and the high biuld primer can go rock hard and cts down on any sinking that would happen if it was rushed into paint ....

Over and Out perv's concider yearselfs updated xxxx
