Yes, I found it very attractive, I hope I will be able to manage it well...

The front and rear clear parts installed, thru the front part the details I made around the HUD and in the inside are visible so it was worth the extra work ( canvas, cables, switches..... )

Needs a very good prepeare, Gunze Surfacer first, then sanding after that matirung mesh ( I don't know the exact name, can be found in any paint shop ) and as a last layer before Alclad is semi gloss black..... And Alclad cote after, the cote is superb, doesn't kill the metal look

 Bit of progress. Metal painted and decals installed. Have to say Alclad is very good metal paint but needs a lot of practice, hard to work with...... The next NMF will be better.....
