yeah, its a sort of semi retirement, I still like working, but its a lot less than full time. can pick and choose how much I do - good balance for me.

Did you paint the insides of the panels to avoid issues with water ingress causing paint bubbling ?

no, just to tidy them up, as they were rough (I know it wont be seen), but yes the 'Raptor' coating should offer better durability.

bit of an update, the blue car is coming on, all fuel, oil and coolant hoses are plumbed in. Engine to ECU wiring is done. Clutch and brake systems are finished with fluid in. Gear cables connected up. Air induction is completed. Just final Lotus loom to VAG anciliaries and a few other wiring jobs and we're there.
V6 Exige will be up for sale soon, just not using it - done less than 10k miles in 5 years and collecting this tomorrow to replace it:

a nice low mileage 111S, with red leather interior.
