Happy to take your money but It's ages until you finally get something. From what I have heard there have been several complaints filed against them. Yours will be just as good with the added bonus of being created by you. Keep it up man looking so good

This would be matt finish, or at the most satin, he was never 'gloss'. The spray was likely from Halfords - we tended to get all our sprays from Halfords!"This bears out my own theory that they did NOT use a metallic paint, or go too shiny, (which often looks worse on screen than in real life as it is too reflective.)...
