Fantastic, thanks!

Some progress on plenum. Crinkle paint is still wet so pre wrinkle effect. I'll block back the thinner lines as masking them is not possible. 

4 hours of sanding to get to this...always takes longer than I recall!  I've gone for more of a satin look this time, think it will suit. I'll clear cot them for ease of maintenance.

Looks superb. When will you get it on the road? I also have a GTV6 which is just about at the end of a rust removal and paint job and I am wondering whether to replace the old rough bonnet liner or leave it without one as yours looks great without one. I do wonder whether without one heat may damage the bonnet? What are you planning to do?

Thanks.  I could put it on the road now but there are still things I want to tidy up before I do.  Plan was always to restore her and sell. Might have got too attached though!

I don't think the bonnet liner will have a big impart on paint. More likely it just keeps some engine noise down.  Better with it on of course, bit Im sure its fine withought.

I plan to put mine back on.  It has been removed and washed.

I'm also working on this...
