That looks excellent do you mind me asking how did you manage to do that around the headlights?

Its a bit fiddly but the edge strip is supple enough to follow the contours, I started by threading some cable through the strip first then as you go round the cover you pull out the cable as you go which opens up the gap so its easy to push onto the edge, E Bay edging strip I bought link below

I wasn't there mate ....someone sent me the pictures on my facebook link congratulating us on the car as they said they have been following the cars but were really impressed with how much better they look in the flesh ...

I managed to get to Stoneleigh on the Sunday with the wife. First time in a number of years. Figured if the show is going to be any good again then it would be now with the weather so good. Wasn't disappointed, lots of cars on display (the outside club areas are the best bit of the show for me). Saw Alex's car and got some pics for the website.

You've done a great job on your Formosa Gary, hats off to you . Looks good in photos and close up looks even better. Lots of work has gone into getting a smooth look body finish, not easy to achieve but results speak for themselves. I really hope it takes off for you

Cheers, John

Thank you JG ...



So many people say it looks better in real life , I guess you see the detail and shape better than in a picture ...its a difficult car to photograph , the colour rarely shows correctly , its the same colour as Jeff H's car , but you wouldn't know that looking at most of the pictures ...
