Boris, greeting from a New South Welshman. Very impressive build. And the other toys in the background, I noticed the GT40, the new rear wing mounts you were building, and lovely old tools like the English Wheel... A true enthusiasts garage 8)

Boris, what are you using to finish your completed alloy panels? Looks like you might be using a 3M pad or maybe a

Boris, thanks. Makes for a nice finish. Post some pictures of the bowser (tank?) when you get a chance.
