The only way to get it 100% is to paint the wing or if you know of a good 2nd hand one that colour

Are you using the Toyota touch up paint? This stuff is usually v good and comes with a clear laquer also.

Unfortunately it will probably never be 'perfect' though unless you get it sprayed as Slipsliderg said.

Battery clamp is missing ...shocker...I haven't had a really good look through it so it may be thrown to one side somewhere. we'd planned on getting it running but its just not economical.

I'll check the other bits and let you know...hope your not in a hurry as it could be a few weeks until I get here stripped with work, etc. ALso a few people hae reserved stuff so I'll have to go through my PMs as I'e given my word there..e.g Punky in Galway wants the electric aerial, etc.
