Looking good!. Some sweet looking timber in that 2nd picture too! (Jamie the wood fanatic, soooo much nicer to work with than cars or rubber :D ).

Astounding how good the M100 shape looks in the classic paint scheme. I daresay it makes the M100 look slimmer and lower. Well done, sir!

Well done .:clap: Like the way it seems to make the M100 look longer and lower ...

Personally, I'm not a fan of the red, white and gold (Gold Leaf ??) colour scheme but what you have done looks to have been done to a very high standard and the paintwork looks fantastic. New leather on the seats looks lovely too :smt023

So well done and enjoy driving thrashing it on the open roads :burnout:
