Very nice... can tell you love your 5!  :wink:   sounds like your having fun with all these new bits going in/on!  :)

I bet that door card wasnt easy to cover!  the hard part is getting it around all curves without creasing.. quite tricky.

With the alloy rad..   I would recommend getting one...  once its on it will last forever.  I had a nightmare with buying new copper core rads and seeing them pissing themselves for no reason... apart them them being faulty?  not sure why mine were so fragile.  But the Alloy one is spot on and looks good too.. which is the most important thing after all! lol  :lol:

:lol:  :P  :D  OK the paint job has taken a while but now comes the fun part of putting johnny 5 back together, paint and bodywork was done by LLOYDS and R-HINDS of Carlisle. who paint merc's beemers vw's basically all prestige cars so the wait is worthwhile.





















more pics to be added once we start to put it back together also have new pics of various parts so my wish list is getting shorter.

looking nice, i guess you didnt spray it in that actual room as it doesnt look very dust/air tight.

Once i have it fillered, sanded and de-rusted mine im hopefully going to get a total respray aswell.

What colour code white is that do you know?
