Oops, bit of short term memory loss while refilling the gun means a bit of extra flatting required...

So now on to body trim parts, followed by the suspensions bushes and interior work, not to mention the engine seals, aircon, electrics

It feels like a small light at the end of a very long tunnel, but at least we're now in the bloody tunnel :)

Thanks for the positive comments, guys. 

 You probably all recall hopo's s3.. It was originally the same as that in lotus helleblau, code A15, I have to admit though, that with the difficulty in matching it, we've gone for a Mazda code instead, which has a very slightly greener hue, but at least any future damage should be easily repaired if necessary.

see earlier blog entries for the hassle finding a match for the paint code...
