Decided not to fit the rear seat so in with the seat pan..

It has a pretty nice chassis!

Lovely job on those wheel rims Nigel. I think I might have to add one of those Molotow chrome pens to the tool box. I heard a couple of the lads raving about them at the last model meeting. The results look great!

They are very good Vinny,must admit did not leave it long enough and it smudged a bit - the tyres were tricky o fit!
