Body colour or satin black would be the most obvious choices. Doubt anything else would look good.

Was thinking of satin black and doing the rear spoiler the same.As the side window trim is that colour 

Don't know which way to go

A big no no re having the rear spoiler non body colour. It just doesn't look right on a late model B.

Looks like the NS sill to lower rear quarter area has had a little bit of work done - is that all solid?

Just a tin of normal brush on paint,Was going to spray the inner wings but to much masking up, and no one will see the inner wings.

Going to clean and paint the suspension black.

Got the polar white paint today 

The chassis swan necks panel behind the headlights are all rust free and in excellent condition 

Also painted the back of the front wings

The is a bit of rust on the bonnet,front panel is ok .the wiper panel has a hole in it (poss for aerial).

Have not got to the doors yet .the rear 1/4s May polish up hopefully 

But happy with the roof turn out better then I thought (6 hours flattened it)

Any idea what the number is in the frame

number is just production stamp, maybe some had different numbers, some had better lock, think the earlier bs, or was it the exclusives, something makes me think it was the bs. longer arms for trackrods attaching, as they are fitted as one complete unit, maybe number is for model purposes, not sure what gte and 1.8s run?

wonder is there a difference between coupes and hatches in front axle assemblys.

btw, just incase you dont know, you have audi disks and mk3cav calipers fitted up front, not sure you knew!

Have not got around to it yet 

Going to paint the roof,bonnet,wings ( the wings off the car) wiper panel and front panel 

Then put it back together.Then actually use the manta for a bit then start on the rest of it 

But no doubt l have a little look then start again,Had a quick look at the paint on the rear 1/4 don’t look to bad 

So if (big If) l can flatten the paint and polish l will blow in the paint that needs it

Tonight only clean and paint the suspension 

clean and paint the exhaust front pipes
