I'm not looking forward to the window trim, either black or bmf.

The paint on the model polished out very nicely.


How did the green on your thumb polish out?

Nice and shiny Shay, the colour suits well.

But you should give your wheelie bin a new paint job .

Got some satin black on the rear end, some of them were painted like that back in the day.

The little V6 just about fits

I do remember those GT's with a matte Black back end. Here in the States they used to call them Baby Corvettes.
