been here a while

hi guys been here a while, but didn't post here.
i live in Guernsey Channel Islands.
have a Ford Puma 1997 1.7 only done 54,000 miles, was silver in colour until the last few weeks.

here are a few pics of it all primed ready for me to do the spray job and a few of after i finished, just done so not polished it yet, the clear coat went on very well and has already a very good shine to it
colour is firecracker metallic blue and sparkles in the sun.
