That does make sense if you have material available and the rot is only localised.

the bonnet i had a drip of the gun.

and i did not get enough gold paint on 

i used a high powerd lamp to look close at the coverage of gold before i top coated. but when you stand back the primer is still showing through.

i can repaint just that section but im going to wait for it to dry good first.

also got a few marks here and there. but the body work on the front was really rough so i can not be to upset..

i have now sold my car so the manta is now going to be my everyday car. so really trying to get it on the road asap.

so i do not have to keep using my wifes car

Blimey! That's quite a transformation, and amazingly quick as well considering you had to fix the grill! 

You been taking speed lessons from IanMc?? :thumbup

I'm glad the car is as good as i was hoping, your cracking on well with it.

Which seller on Ebay did you get the lamps from and do you know if they sell the adjuster screws as well?
