    Yeah mines ready for the MOT very soon. May get it done next week.

    Mine had a hot zinc coating put on under neath before using upol raptor. Done by retropower.

    I was going to use bilt hamber stuff, a 2part epoxy. Still got it, as retropower did it. Then a stone chip over that.

    3M do a nice kit for stone chip spray you can get the same finish as factory comes with a spray gun and the product but you can buy it separately.
