Is it rubber?

looks like its had a bit of spit and polish since i last saw it . Davey the colour looks much better in the flesh trust me Frankie every time i see a new picture of it you have made it nicer where do you find the time whilst building another?

Hi Ash

The mirrors were very locost 10 from the moped repair shop . They will do for now. Finding time is what my wife says when things need doing at home. The good thing about my other build is that is at my workshop and I can put time in on it when I need to chill out. I am not in a hurry to finish it like I was be for. The new car will have all my new panels which is what I have been concentrating on.
