    Them spray guns look good. Pretty keen to see how it turns out. The SV replica is a good idea and I think they look tough. Alpine white will also look good. Whats going on with the engine? and what are your plans for the transmission?

    Holy ****!

    Matte.

    I reckon gloss would lose its shine over time and end up looking average
