well the misses refuses to drive an autobox so it would just lay in the drive and would be a waste but one thing is for sure it will be one of the best cougars about here(as in my area)not meaning to brag but i have begun to realise the amount of work i have put into this car

Looking great Paul, nice job. One thing I would do personally, would be to "lower" the car by 30mm or so, as the gap between the top of the wheel and wheel arch look huge, but this is just my opinion. Liking the "yellow" with the black - works well.

Looks great Paul, I'm guessing it looks so 'high' because it's been up on jacks/axle stands, and the springs haven't settled back down yet.

I tried the hammerite smooth. It didn't cover very well for me. Did you use any kind of a base coat or is it just my inability to do anything cosmetic shining through again?? :(

al when you apply the first coat wait 4 hours then apply another as the first coat will be tacky enoughy to adhere to
