The paint looks good, where did you get it done?

The cars in the second lot of pictures are a 205 with a Mi16 lump in it and the other is an 1936 Austin 14/6 Goodwood. Got a friendly spray guy Dave who owns Prestige Body Repairs Ltd in Rugby, I'm happy with the paint job

Hope you have new wheels, don't think they fit under the older style ones.

They'll fit under a set of 17s off the S4, did realize the size difference in size between the SE disc and the sport 350 discs  :thumbsup:

Have lost our lock up unit, so have had to move my mum barn, but have achieved more work in the last couple of weeks that I have in the last couple of months. Have now refitted the rear tailgate, the rear wing and have stripped out the interior ready to fit a new carpet. Will be getting leather redone prior to refitting it. Does anyone have replcement rubbers for an SE wing to sit on or know where you can get hold of them, been told by Paul Matty that they are no longer available.
