    Good progress. You've been spending!

    Tbh unless you spend a lot on the likes of 3m, it'll be hard to replicate the OEM finish.
    I'm going to try Gravi HEL Armor Skin, I'm told it's damn near as good as Raptor and a lot cheaper, plus you can buy a tintable version.

    I’ve got tintable raptor without the raptor logo. The paint to tint it for 500ml was £48!!

    bit more done tinted the mipa as per the instructions and the colour is more gray than black so ordered some 2k gloss black. Fixed a coupe of bits on the scuttle aswell today. Now looking at modifying a mk2 pedal box wit a mk3 one might work.[​IMG] [​IMG]
    done a repair to the gutter run as there was some rot and no clip holder. Some made one out of some 5mm stainless thread and run the grinder around all done.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] seam sealed and ready for gravitex paint colour should be here at the weekend. Cant wait [:D][​IMG] [​IMG] also updated the header tank think it looks better than the old style[​IMG] epoxy primed the inside as well just to help.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    It’s annoying me how quickly you are doing this.

    on the starter make sure you have nice bare metal where it fits up to the box as it needs to earth thru the casing, same goes for mating face from block to gearbox, alternator to its bracket, alt bracket to block :)
