    Hj61 - oops...

    So, I spent today getting ready for a camping trip in a few weeks time. Then I did this to my pride and joy... so disappointed... Lucky there was a hose close by - another 10 seconds and I don’t think I would have stopped it... The inside is now soaked, stinks of smoke, roof liner obviously...

    Raptor - lined 60’s

    Hi all, I have decided to re-spray my hj61 with Raptor Liner. I have decided on this as the body isn’t 100% dent free, it has some rust I need to fix in the gutters, doors, and front quarter panels, and I don’t want to spend every weekend getting it ready for a gloss paint job... The car is the...
