Chris...........and you had the audacity to insult ME on the forum with a picture like that :evil:

'Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, not around the eyes but into my eyes and.............................

Your asleep ! :twisted: :twisted:

The cars looking good Tiff. Glad you didn't go for the Artex finish like Joe or a simple glossy white (maybe with a hint of peach) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am seriously considering a respray for my exxy (Red) as the Green 1300 puts it to shame. There is very little rust on it and it would benefit greatly, but I cannot convince SJ as she can see 2 1/2 exxys on the drive and another grand or so would tip her into the anti-exxy mindset. It took me this long to get her round ! :lol:

Me not jealous :wink:

PS 4:46am Joe ! Bloody hell, most people have a fag or coffee first thing in the morning let alone be coherent enough to post on the forum. See blue text above...........you will lead a normal life with your fiance in a house 2.4 kids (maybe) and a car that gets you from A to B.........your awake ! STOP LAUGHING.........!

Erm,it really just makes up for my old one I killed.I'll try and keep this one shiny side up. I used Ford Diamond white 2K, ready mixed and £9.95 a litre...I did use a spraygun,but not going for a show winner! Don't want to be scared to "use" (abuse) it!! Mind you those quarter panels were a lucky find..I dont wanna be crumpling them!

With a bit of luck this will be my last week of nightshifts before leaving work. I plan not to work shifts again, but will miss the late night posting when work is boring and filling time. :roll:



under a tenner for a litre of top coat is really good Tiff.
I paid £16 per litre for my white primer! :oops:
