Looking good and nice paint job, is the paint water based acrylic? will it be seeing any muddy farm tracks or is it just to pose in.
seat box ready to be fitted in car.
proberbly a lot of attention to detail but it’s for a car for life.
did you remember to put strips of sealant between all the faces and panel joins ...........?
All was sealed with acrylic sealant, cheap option would have been silicone but as most people know it’s not good at receiving paint later if needed unlike acrylic which can be over painted.
