Ever thought of a change and a nice wrap? now that will protect the paint work some
Who is this Lee chap? Always good to know people who are great at dealing with chips / scratches.

Cheers

Where a number of us 1M owners go for our work on our cars be it cosmetic or paint and dent repair.....Lee is also car enthusiast like the rest of us but also has a bit of a talent with classic rebuilds. I have known Lee now for a number of years as a mate.

Still miss the old CSL
Bet you'll enjoy it. Decided to forego the CSL and got an E92 Competition Pack instead. Sold the R32 at 84k miles. We should meet up once you've settled into the 1M.

Just watched the videos. The first video is a masterpiece, so good, just makes me want to go and drive somewhere beautiful. I really need to visit UK, gorgeous countryside, beautiful roads.

Utterly brilliant Marcus, thanks!

Can't decide if I prefer the grand V8 roar and the music (what is that track?) from Day 1 or those intriguing rustlings and squeaks from Day 2....

Cheers guys. The rattling noises were Hetan' coins in his ashtray . I think the first vid has a nostalgic feel to it, while the second is a bit more gritty in the beginning and melancholic at the end.

Looks good. Perhaps a little less saturation would make it look even better. Good job with the signpost as well.

It can be done with the Paint program! I removed this errant sign post by copying the area next to it and pasting it over.

(I know its the exact same pic but I deleted the original foolishly)

Forgot to mention - the audio track in the first vid is Ikebana by StrangeZero.
