Yes, I remember the thread but which hue did you end up with (is it the Jag shade?)

Fantastic! Great colour and great finish. Well done.

Fitting up will be the fun part and you'll be surprised how quickly you empty those boxes of bits cluttering your garage. :wink:

I'm very envious as I won't get my Coupe back until the middle/end of May ..... can't wait (but I'll have to!).

:D
