thank you very much everyone :D
it was a tough month to be up as all the other builds were top notch ,and im sure they will all be winners some time in the future.
as for the matt/satin paint,i have grown to love it,as i wasnt to sure at the start,and its actually easier to keep clean than shiny as it doesnt need polished :wink: .
also because its laquered it doesnt show up finger prints etc
i have some things to sort and get the interior finished in time for gti international in a few weeks
