Well done Will. A fellow club member told me that as long as there are enough coats of paint it will always cut back and polish. I'm sure it will come up well...no peel in that orange!

Thanks Matt 👍
It’s straight off the gun gloss paint, although I’ve decided to cut back and lacquer on top, good practice for the other ones Dave.

Think the original sunroof was a glass shorty Richard!

Yes it did have a glass sunroof, which is available, also a large cut of headlining shortly when I fit it and cut the large aperture for the full stretch roof.

Did you mistype ‘length’ ? Wouldn’t mind having a look. I’m only down the M40 in Beaconsfield.
