Haven't looked in here a while. Hope all is well.

Painters could have masked up the wheel wells, that over spray is everywhere :(

Also, should have used Epoxymastic on the inner wings, that wax oil stuff stays oily and in warm weather it's horrible.

Regarding the screen, you manage to source a new bronze panel?

Not really fussed on wheel wells as thats all going to get waxoyl anyway, reason why i used waxoyl so it stay's oily an no water sticks on

Ek's never come with bronze screen, inports and uk all used normal glue/green glass

Learn something new everyday, never knew the EK9 came with blue glass.

The epoxymastic is pretty good stuff, best I've seen for coating undersides of chassis'.

It comes as a 2 part with a hardener and once it goes on it sets like powdercoat.
