I’d say no point as you’ll only stuff them again but Blyton is off the calendar for 2020..

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Don’t tell Andy - he’s been after a harlequin car for years..

It’ll be force induction method at 20 paces but maybe not in 2020 - depends how long it takes for the cage to be made and fun with gearboxes..

So started to make repairs to the panels.

Nose cone has a few hairline cracks, through and under the paint what's the best repair method before paint?

Cheers

On a nose cone they’ll only be the paint that’s cracked?

Sanded through the paint and you can see them still on the black resin very fine ie dust shows them. Perhaps give them a bit more sanding depth? Then filler primer....

If you go down to plastic, use a primer for bumpers, it acts like a glue between traditional paint or filler and the plastic. Most motor factors stock it in rattle cans, sprays on like a watery opaque lacquer. Thatll mean any paint you add after will stick
