A little bit ;)

I sold it a couple of years back and the new owner had the engine re-placed, the garage cowboy'ed it and it suffered a really bad electrical fire :(

very impressive looking replica.... can hardly taste the differnce.

What a waste... i hope that garage was flogged publically... then had an electrical fire of its own  ;)

Very very nice. Pity she's no longer with us.

That's quite a shine you've got going there. What polish were you using on it?

I think the poor begger only had it insured as a standard GSI to save costs too!

I do all my own painting and body work so I have got a nice selection of professional polishes, glazes and compounds.

To get it like that I used G3 compound, 3M Finesse-IT and 3M Hand Glaze.

A bit more involved than AutoGlym then.
