    What did you coat them with?

    Stunning car and incredible work. If I still lived in Ont, I'd pop down for a look/drool!

    I thought that I noticed a hole in the hood, or that the grill was black and it wasn't as visible in the picture. Is that the original grill or a replacement? Regardless it looks great! I can see what you mean on how the stance has settled in now that it has all of the fluids and has been driven.

    They do settle down once some kms have been put on them.

    Replacement grill slats a friend of mine cut on his waterjet then I had them etched, the bevels polished and finally clear anodized. The originals weren't responding well to anodizing which can happen with old aluminum.

    The engine and engine bay looks amazing. If I owned one I think I'd have the lid popped up more than down! This one from the pics above needs a re-take with a better background and oh my!

    Quick Question: Is there a color code or name for the "black color" on the rear bonnet and all the other blacks? Is it a flat or satin finish?
