Thanks Wez. It was hard work all by hand but worth it I think. Definitely won't be doing the whole thing by hand again though. Just takes too long. Time to invest in a good DA. I should mention too that the front bar was fresh paint, just left to cure, hence the massive difference in colour. It's all blended in a lot better now - well.. as blended as plastic holden panels seem to get anyway.

how many hours did that take mate, looks grouse mine needs your handy work!
How many hours? WAYYYY too many! The use of a good DA would have cut the time spent working on it right down - and let me attack all the dealer-added swirls and spider-webbing she's had since new. However, I am very happy with the finish. The second coat goes on after the rain stops. Will post up better pics once finished.
