It sounds like if you dont want to invest much more time into it, a single colour (primer) will be your best bet. At the moment, it looks like it still needs a lot of work for someone to be able to...

I'm not quite ready to give away all my secrets just yet, as still buying bits, and planning the details of the rear end. I'm finding it very hard to decide on a set of rear lights. Happy/sad news...

Thanks, bladerunner. They look as fun to drive as they do just sitting still. Just been watching the Jay Leno video on them:

Seems to me that screwing some MDF covered in parcel tape onto the "smooth" side seems like the best bet, as it gives you a good strong surface to press against, to get the bubbles out, as it can...

I believe most of (if not all) the VR6 lumps are cast iron, so not exactly the lightest of engines, and can have "corrision" issues between the head and block, as the head is usually alloy. Other...
