HI All
Just a up-date on my panels. I have taken them from the moulds today and Iím very pleased with the results. The bonnet and scuttle match well and I will not need to have edging trim on the bonnet.

WOW, lookin' pretty good there Frankie boy! I take my hat off to anyone who can do GRP work, I made a bootlid in GRP last year for my camper conversion, it cost me about a hundred quid and took about a hundred hours to turn it into something even vaguely resembling acceptable and that was just a five foot by three foot flat panel with a supporting frame!

That's looking good Frankie, just need plenty of hours with wet and dry down to 2000 grit then a good buff up with G3 then G10 compound it will really get them shining.

Well Done.....AndyH
