cheers for the comments guys :)

when i get round to doing the rest of the car i will get some better pics
ordered some more stuff from Gaz which will no doubt help improve things even more

one thing i will say tho, is my arms don't half ache today from it but not as much as they would have if i had done the work by hand :lol:

once im done with this i will be well on the way to being ready for Ford Fair

That's got a lovely shine to it, even without camera flash, I imagine.
