Default Not long

3 and a bit weeks 'til the kit arrives and Im chomping at the bit. Wheels now shod in nice fat rubber, spare fuel filler pipe, nice new rear lights and period side repeaters from cbsonline (and some crap front LR front indicators to send back)
I think Im pretty much there and will have a week off from delivery of the kit. Im gonna do it slightly different to most by doing the back first keeping the car on the road and then a couple of weeks later I'll have some more time off and do the front. It should draw some interesting looks being driven round half and half......

Q- have people coated/sealed under the body where it will be exposed to grit dirt and stonechips. If so what did you use?

I havent got round to using it yet but I have bought some of this stuff http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/U-pol-Rapt...item1e7267c835

Ive heard great things about it and plan to use it on chassis, metal body parts and wheel arches.

I used this, thick back sticky stuff but it does the job, and prevents rust.
