Thank you .... Yes painted over Xmas period . I used cellulose rather than 2 pack and sanded back and then waxed without buffing it to give it that old sheen , roundalls and numbers , Sponsor logo's etc.are all painted , rather than vinyl and sanded as well , paying attention to areas most likely to suffer a few knocks or a bit of wear ...

Engine and gearbox are 3 litre /manual Ford V6 and side exhausts are fully plumbed up , The cill area covering the front sections are aluminium

Firestone logo's used as fairly simple for me to do and didn't want to put too much on the car and she's fitted with Firestone tyres . ...
