Looks great.

Looking at shops to do my bits of corrosion, front wings, roof, and front bumper, possibly bonnet too.

What wheel colour did you get, looks great, did they apply a standard colour?
Powder coat or spray?
Any particular laquer finish?

I had my wheels done a few year ago at Lepsons, they had standard colours, was never sure if it was close to factory as my wheel had previously been done so never saw the factory colour / finish.

I like the idea of a flat looking silver on the wheels, not metallic.
Standard colour, had them done at platinum alloys.

Looks as good as its debut at the Geneva Motorshow.

The thing that strikes me in the image is now crystal clear the headlights look.
Need to give mine a polish with some Plast-RX
Yeah those headlights!
Not quite debut quality, but not bad for her age 🙂

They’re new, had fronts and rears replaced.

Here’s the link to the rears:
