    Was this done with 2-pack or newer eco-friendly stuff as the shine looks too good for a gun finish with water based

    Brilliant John! If you're needing any help with spanners or spray guns, I'm just down the road! Do holler if you wanna!

    Looks great stuff - there are a couple of these racing in the SMRC Classic Sport & Saloon class at Knockhill.

    Tut tut, those are TR8s bud

    Ok I'll let you off, one of them is a TR7 V8

    Thanks for the kind words guys, the paintwork isn't without the odd blemish but tbh 300 quid for a paint job soon covers up any marks

    Put it this way it's as good as it was when it came out of the factory showroom 30 years ago
