Nice one Irf

how did the paint lay on top of it?

The white Sika is slightly whiter than the oem finish, I was going to get some champ white to touch it in, but with it drying out pretty flexible I was unsure on how the paint would sit on top
Paint set perfectly Dan. I had some left over in a tin so used a small brush and went over it all, sticks perfectly.
Finish is like OEM now, you wouldn't know its been done. I'm glad I used grey because you can actually see where you needed to paint lol

nice, i tested mine today and same as you leak free, bone dry, delighted
Now away to suss out a decent touch up kit

Did you use a clear coat on top or just the paint Irf?
I used 2k paint that was left over from body shop. But you can buy those touch up kits in champ white on eBay for under a tenner. Will work fine. Just keep area dry overnight

Great build up and nice attention to detail, I gave up looking for a ek9 back in 2014 so I imported a FL dc5 threw torque got and it's done 2k miles since owning it lol garage queen is a understatement but it shows how clean they stay not being drove on UK salted or wet roads. Keep up the good work
