Thanks mate.
Yeah im really happy with the way the tank turned out. And as a bonus it doesnt leak fuel now that i replaced it. Thinking of doing silver tank with black straps on the wagon. But that car needs a full spray job due to the lack on paint the bonnet and roof. Now has a white tailgate due to getting backed into.

Yes that will look awesome.
I just had a proper look at the 3rd photo, is that smoothed where the little clip thingy goes near the rear quarter panel?
If so do you have any more pictures? I have never seen that done before. I reckon it would look really good.

Will be nice to see a good layer of paint on the wagon.

Yes it is. Ill upload some more photos of that rear quarter to rear piller tonight when on the laptop.

Also the white sedan will now be getting the bonnet and both front guards replaced. Once i refit.my old kmac camber strut tops back in so i can get my 3.5 deg neg camber. Giving me guard clearance on turn.
Then time for the new paint . cant leave black guards on forever.
