Cheers mate, paint takes 24hrs to harden, but I need me car, so couple of annoying fingerprints when I was putting it back on, but HEY, blind man on a galloping horse wont see it, better than it was, thats the most important thing.

Painted at me parents mate, and paint down there, cant remember the make, but it goes on excellent, you can see it bonding to the metal, will see if its still bonded by june 30th, and your right, a total pain in arse putting back on, me backs killing me and not much skin left on me knuckles, got tip from here to wd40 the pipes and it was spot on, eventually they just slid into place

Looks really smart fella, good job.

It gets addictive though. Started on my last car as the radiator brackets were rusty, sort of went down hill quite quickly after that Very Happy Put one bit back on and the bit next to it looked shabby, and so on.....

Did all the work in the engine bay myself over about 6 months of weekends (car used as a genuine daily driver) and it made a massive difference. Will dig out a before and after photo and post it up later on. Did a popular thread on another forum documenting the revamp.
